Some paint recommendations and scenic tips from Graham Toovey.
As some of you know I modelled US railroads for some years until I was lured by the dark side and got into British O, but that is another story.
Back in the 1980s The Badger Airbrush Company started to make their own acrylic paint called Accuflex, it was a brilliant paint for brushing or airbushing and a lot of the colours were suitable for British modelling. Unfortunately the paint went out of production in the early 2000s.
Early last year I found that they had started making it again and a British based company is selling it. Barwell UK, which sell airbrush supplies, market the paint which is called Model Flex water based acrylic hobby paint.
The tubs cost £3.00 + P & P each and hold 30ml over double what Humbrol hold at 14ml each. Go online barwellbodyworks-shop.com/gb/154-model-flex-paints
Another tip is for making hard shell scenery. I use Gyproc easie fill which you can buy at most builders merchants. I used it when I did the river banks and fields on "Uffculme" (CVMRC O Gauge exhibition layout)
For colouring scenery I use artist acrylic best bought at The Works
I pre colour the easie fill when mixing it so if it get chipped it does not show white.
Hope this will be of some help.
