    Hello guys!

    I just want to introduce you to Tamiyas weathering sets!

    The sets are in my opinion veru useful to us paperbuilders.
    The colors stick very good to paper, it can also be scraped to powder and used as paint when mixed with water.
    The colors are for someone like me, who is very very bad with colors, a helpful "toolbox" in getting the "right" color where it belongs :)
    The sets comes with a brush/sponge thing for applying the pigments.

    Here I have applied the colors to a sheet of paper.

    So I can recommend theese sets to anyone who's into cardmodelling :)

    I also use chalk on my models, but since I'm not very good with colors , sets like this are vey useful.And edgecoloring especially on military models is very easy to do.Covering white connection spots are also simple.
    I have used it all over on the Greif I'm building, and the result is very good.
    The sets are not expencive, and lasts very long.

    I think sets like this have been around for some time.They are well known in the plastic community.

    I also have the Mud stick from Tamiya, and that is also a handy tool :)
    Very handy for applying dirt on the model.

    I saw a set of these in a shop last week and I was wondering would they last if used for weathering an R/c boat...ya know something that might be subjected to outside conditions and slight immersion in a pond?

    Thanks gents
