In-Progress Creations / MG Advanced Hazel
« on: April 26, 2021, 07:12:25 PM »

Here is a brief progress thread on my Advanced Hazel build

I'm starting to gather a nice backlog of kits (MG ZII Resin Conv, Ex-s/S Gundam 1.5 and MG Mk.V) so I felt very compelled to complete this one with my new airbrush!

The Badger Patriot 105 is a pretty good entry level airbrush and I've been pretty happy thus far. I'd say learning to do things in layers, even strokes and regulating air pressure are my biggest flaw starting out. Which, now that I think about it, are the major things to airbrushing properly.  Also, I am using a full shop compressor, that drives my girlfriend crazy, so I only have time to paint on the weekends or if I start the compressor before she gets home from work  :shifty: .

Now, I just jumped into this kit about a week ago and have been doing things in burst. I tried to be mindful of taking progressive photos, but things tend to get in the way so here's a nice photo dump

Mr.Hobby Surfacer 1200 - Primer for all parts (I need more alligator clips  :meh:)

Mr.Hobby Black/Green C018 - Frame parts

Mr.Hobby Deep Ocean Blue C375 - Outer Frame/Main Color

A rule of thumb, that I will keep in mind for future kits, never start with a paint color youre very close to being out of. I have a NEWTYPE order a few days out, that will contain another jar of Deep Ocean Blue, and I should have this kit ready for decals the following week.

I'm definitely striving for a subtle look overall, but with just a little bit of pop with the Black/Green frame. It's hard to capture but when you see the green, it really sets the kit apart.

Hello! Glad to see this forum still up and running.

It has been such a long time since I've visited the FichtenFoo Forums, but I'm glad that I am able to necro-bump an old thread of mine.

With working from home, I've somewhat renewed my interest in finishing this kit (something nice to add to my desk); as well as keep me from going insane with boredom.

Here you can see most of the kit primed and ready for primer.

Certain parts I'm slightly cleaning up and will paint separately. I also had to rebuild the pistons as I lost those  :(, but the new pistons worked out a lot better.
You can also see in the previous picture, I ruined one of the feet, so there's some recasting in my future haha.

Lastly, I bought an MG Advanced Hazel to be the brother kit to this. Will create a new thread once this is 80% painted.

Model Talk / Ngee Khiong closed his blog
« on: October 07, 2010, 11:04:41 PM »
I know this is probably a week or so old, but just a heads up Ngee's blog is done for.

I feel like with BAKAUC using FB to update new products we won't feel the pain of his blog being gone too bad, but its sad to see it go.

Ok I've been contiplating on the idea of me entering a contest, because I never live up to what I say Im going to do. This time around though everything has fallen into place. I have my utencils, putty, even a airbrush. So first off I will like to start with my ideas.

Here are my ideas for the shoulders, chest and legs.

Ive already started with the sanding process, still working out the scratching part.

Painting/Priming / Paasche Airbrush ?
« on: August 11, 2005, 10:26:58 AM »
I'm looking at the VSR90 it's a double action-gravity feed and it's only 70.00. Now I was wondering is this airbrush good for modeling and has anyone used this model before.
