My girlfriend. I love you Punkin.
Cool Dragon Hunter. Looking forward to seeing it. Should be like riding a bicycle. Since you've done it before it should come back.
haven't ridden a bike since the early 70's so at this point my model building skills are fresher than my bike riding skillsCool Dragon Hunter. Looking forward to seeing it. Should be like riding a bicycle. Since you've done it before it should come back.
lots of googling and you tubing to see how the modellers do it ! it seems the way to go is with washes and removal of washes in order to highlight crevices, then hand painting stand out items like piping.I know "In Theory" very well, not limited just to paint.
Now you have me intrigued. I'm sure you have a good plan.
all the theory in the world means nothing if I can't translate it to the real world
Therein lies the rub. I have some ideas on things I'd like to do. I think I have a good idea on what I need to do to accomplish it. It's pretty much "going for it" and seeing if it works.
I'm pretty sure the washes and hand painting are pretty much how it's done. I've never done it so I am no expert.
Thanks for the tips Donna, I did initially think about using illustration but couldn’t convince myself that it would be the right choice. I ended up getting a few bottles of enamel. “Ammo by MIG”Just remember if you decide to use enamel/solvent washes (widely used in the scale model world) don't build the model then do the wash... the plastic can "crack" I am thinking that illustration would be a great wash for this. You can use windex to remove the paint/manipulate it.
What sort of water based ones Andre ? Does it stick well to the plastic ?
Looks good so far Jackster! I’m holding out for Christmas to get one .Yeah yeah speedy Gonzalez!!!
I had to wait for paint supplies, then my remote regulator stuffed up (el cheapo) so the new one will hopefully arrive in the next 2 days so I have it for the weekend!! im taking progress pics and I’ll post up as soon as I’m done
