Pathfinder Devilfish
 
This is my best vehicle so far, probably my best model too. Any suggestions about how I could make it better?

Its not quite finished yet but I didn't want to risk the wrath of the painting forums mod, as this looks suspiciously like a finished model.
Thanks, Aun Le'Keth

Looks very good to get the decals to not look like some Fio tech just taped them on use a gloss coat like future floor wax on your model then apply the decals and when all finished give it several good thin coats of a matte sealer and boom nice looking decals.

You also have some gaps too.. those are very frustrating to try and remove but I think there is something called squadron putty use to fil gaps in model tanks and planes that should do the job.

I like the camo job you've done and you've highlighted also (someting I've yet to attempt save for a few models)

Excellent work, especially on the highlights (I never seem to get them right on vehicles...).

The gold/metallic colours don`t do it for me, but that`s just me.

Also, to counter the "add-on" look of decals, I found washing them with ink takes care of this, though you end up with slightly unclear decals - which is not bad if you want a wheathered tank. In your case, heeding Faols advice may be better (tough I`ve never tried it).

Cheers,

I've tried it at the suggestion of a member on the ATT forums it works...rather well too plus the future floor wax act as good protective coat too

Re: Pathfinder Devilfish
 
I'm not sure I'll think about it and then decide which to try, I like both ideas but I'm leaning toward the ink wash just because it sounds easier. As for the metal bits, I think they add points of interest to the model, otherwise it might look a bit... boring?

Thanks Aun Le'Keth
