Really nice scopedog!

Sanding with multiple grits is effective start coarse a d finish with finer wet as ding. I find that paint always looks a lot better than raw plastic, plastic tends to look like plastic.I do have a 1/100 that is mostly unpainted but I used slot of future flattend to get a dead flat look. Just add Tamiya flat base to future to make a great filling spray it will need to be airbrushed tho.

You would like to improve on your model building ?
More specifically, i would like to give my already built models an aesthetic revision, as mentioned. Problem is that they are already built and cannot be deconstructed completely, this is why i seek advice from more expierienced modelers on how to apply the steps i missed during the initial assembly. I see i kind of missed the point in trying to describe my dilemma as clear as possible.


Model building is an exercise in patience and attention to detail. It forces you to calm down on focus, therapeutic you might say. Here is great website for tutorials to get you started. Gamera is a great guy and has been building Gundam for years. After you read thru and watch the videos if you still have questions you can ask him more on his blogsite.


This is why i decided to take it up. I've already read a few guides, but i guess i can try. Thank you.
How did you glue the plastic, liquid cement? It can be very time consuming but kits can be un,assembled with a sharp blade (I use a #11) and a Zona razor saw. Go slow and be patient, look at it as sub assemblies, for instance a foot can usually stay in one piece where the torso almost always needs to be split to get to the innards. Good luck.

I use a tiny dab of blu tack on a bamboo skewer

Model Help* (Check Stickies and Search First) / Eclipse HP-BCS
« on: July 26, 2012, 02:34:33 PM »

Wow- I just got the Iwata Eclipse HP-BCS - this is the Cadillac of airbrushes - I own a Badger 200 and a Badger Crescendo as well as a model master airbrush and this baby beats them all - hands down. The airbrush is a bottle fed ( I use the color cup off the Badger and it works just fine) I tried shooting thin paint at low pressure - worked fine - thicker paint at higher pressure - worked fine. Clean-up is pretty standard just shoot cleaner through the brush to change color and a simple break-down and cleaning when you are done for the day. I very highly endorse this airbrush!

I find if you are careful HO or 1/87 will pass for 1/100 as long as you don't give away the scale with other out of scale items too close to one another. I use all kinds os stuff -plastic card,wood,plaster,etc to build my dioramas.
