Things to buy
Albion Alloys. these guys make some overlapping brass tubes.. That's it, if you have to do some gun barrels or torpedoes without owning a lathe, you use those : cut it athe right length so that you make the cone shape and then smooth down the angles using some magic Sculp like mastic or even car body mastic. Wished I had that when I did Regulus' 47mm or Gockcedag's torpedoes..
They also carry the Flex I File stuff but don't sell direct. All that to say the downloadable catalogue is pretty cool and should be checked. Uschi says more of it here about how to use some things like the Touch N' Flow system.
Mr Paint inks are obvious. I personnaly don't get why anyone wouldn't use them for their dioramas.
If you need to get custom decals printed, I have been trying here and there to get some done for the Pacific Cowboys diorama, and the only place both willing to do the job but also advising is www.meliusmanu.pl. The website is in Polish but the owner speaks perfect English. No other place to go.
Last but not least, let's talk about Acrylics, those from AMMO Mig Jimenez are perfect for the job, their vehicle weathering p^roducst I use for most of my dioramas..
Friends and modellers whose work I do like
