I thought some might like to see my slightly customized Musai, and start of a Salamis in 1/400. I'm at the point with the Musai, where I like what I have so far, but it seems to need more still. Any ideas that i might be missing?

And there's the bones of a 1/400 MS Igloo version Salamis (The 1/1700 Ex Salamis kit).


It's a start anyway... 8)

Assembly/Scratchbuilding / Mori Mori questions

I just got my first batch of Mori Mori. I like it. It's an excellent putty like Tamiya Polyester Putty.
 I would have sworn I've seen this putty being used in a consistency like silly putty in Hobby Japan. They had stuck it to a sprue, and added a blob of it and let it dry and carved out a hand. It was definately non-gooey. I'm pretty sure it was not an epoxy putty. It also looked to carve and sand easily. I don't think epoxys are as easy as polyester to carve/sand are they?
 The closest I could come to replicating this was only 2 ways. First to let it dry a bit, but this made wrinkles. Second to use talc  like a baker uses flour. I had better results this way, but the center needed more dry time on my experiment. I plan to try the talc again.

 Anyway, am I nuts about the silly putty consistency? Was that the Sube Sube or Doro Doro? What's the difference between the 3, and are the mix ratios the same for all of them?
