Releasing something that makes things as fast, easy and convincing as possible, that is what our job is all about. Uschi´s products
are based on my own experience as a scale modeler. I never will release a product that doesn´t meet the requirements mentioned above.
Making things easy
Wood Grain Decals, camo stencils, Burnishing Agent for Friul white metal tracks....much is done and there is much more to come.
Allow me to have a few words about how all of this has begun.
The aircraft model you see below is Wingnut Wings´s 1/32nd scale LVG C VI. I built it in 2010 within a period of around 3 months. It has won serveral gold medals, best of class and audience awards. It was pretty much successful.
People always asked how the wood was done. Well in this case, the grain texture was painted by hand with a pin brush. During the conversations with the modelers i often realized that its not easy for everyone to paint a wood grain by hand. All of the sudden i had the idea! Why not using a decal for it?
I ran some tests and it all came out nice. It straight led to what we have here:
The possibility for everyone to reach a FASTER AND BETTER result as i was able to paint by hand.
Not only the military side of modeling is interesting. There is so much crazy stuff available around the world, its hard to find a topic to focus on. Military modelers tend to weather their models pretty heavy sometimes. This has led to sheer sience and very complex painting techniques, setting the bar higher and higher. On the civil modeling side, you find much of these techniques adapted. There is really unbelievable stuff out there, again demonstrating that it always is a good idea to look beyond your own nose.
Uschi now has begun to focus on this side of modeling as well.
During the process, many other ideas came up and we will release a range of nice and usefull products, helping you to gain fast and professional results when it comes to wood on aircrafts, ships or vehicles. Furthermore you´ll find pretty sweet stuff when it comes to complicated camouflage on AFV.
On the AFV side it might be interesting to know that we found a way to weather your FRIUL tracks in next to no time, using the effect of natural oxydation. Check out Uschi van der Rosten´s Kettenfärbemittel, Burnishing agent for white metal tracks.
