  • Painting - by an old master

    Barry Norman, Alan Brackenborough

    Issue 76 (1995)


    In an age when finescale modelling is becoming increasingly new-fangled, Alan Brakenborough is an anomaly, rigidly sticking with the simplest tools and materials to produce what many regard as the best finishing to be found anywhere in the world. When MRJ asked Alan to explain his methods, Barry Norman accepted the photographic assignment with both hands and set off in the snow to meet someone whose work he had admired for many years. It was better - but very different - than expected, and we couldn't resist asking Barry to briefly recall that remarkable day.

    Introduction by Barry Norman. Then Alan explains his methods.
