Assembly/Scratchbuilding / Thrusters question
« on: May 01, 2008, 09:42:21 PM »
What size thrusters would I need for say, a 1/100 MG Mk.II AEUG?

Any other suggestions as far as option parts go for beginner-level modifications for Master Grade kits?

Painting/Priming / painting internals on MGs
« on: April 08, 2008, 08:59:11 PM »
What's the best way to do this?  Am I just supposed to use a really small brush? What kinds of paints and paint-to-thinner ratio?

I read the other topics about painting small details and the figures that come with MG's, and think I've got the gist of it, but I just want to make sure.

Thanks for your help.

Painting/Priming / Badger 350 is clogging!
« on: February 15, 2008, 05:41:35 PM »
I just started airbrushing.  I have a Badger 350 Standard and am using Tamiya acrylics.  The airbrush is a single action and I don't have a compressor yet so I'm using propellant. It seems like it clogs up some, so I have a couple of questions:

-What ratio of thinner to paint should I be using? 

-Any tips on properly cleaning my airbrush?

Assembly/Scratchbuilding / Instead of painting...
« on: February 15, 2008, 05:34:24 PM »
What if I were to skip painting altogether?

Say I was building a Master Grade kit and wanted to try this in lieu of painting:

1. Sand all the parts and spray a clear coat of enamel over them.
2. Do the panel lines using a watered down acrylic.

I figure if I spray an enamel clear coat over the entire model, it will induce the capillary action when I use an acrylic wash for the panel lines.

If I sand and polish the parts well enough initially, who will know the difference?

Just something I've been contemplating.  Please give me your thoughts.
