I added a few parts such as gun mantlets, brass gun barrels, exhaust tubing, engine cranks, etc.

These were all printed on glossy photopaper which gives them a litho tinplate toy effect and the colors are more saturated.

Great job, that's a beautiful finish. Those are nice clean builds, these WWI armored vehicles are fun.

I do love the deep coloring effect of using the photo paper. You did an amazing job with the extra details and the super clean building. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful models. I really like the rich color you got from the photo paper. Did you have to use any special glue? I have heard of others using CA glue. Very nice jod and thank you for sharing. wc

The paper I use is Office Max everyday glossy photo paper. It has excellent gluing characteristics and it doesn't matter which side is being glued. I generally use Elmer's white glue. I apply it with a brush and usually thin it just a bit with water.

Some photo papers such as Epson's Premium are almost like thin plastic and really can't be glued with white glue.

Thanks, everyone for the kind words.

Those are terrific! Really clean work. I tried photopaper but I found it difficult to work with. I've had more success with glossy brochure paper, which isn't as shiny as photopaper, and is a lighter weight. You obviously have mastered working with photopaper. Well done!
