I’ve just had a look at my Tron DVD bonus disk and its got some nice images I’m going to use for reference.
Just got my Tron Light Cycle resin kit from the US. Looks pretty nice. It’s a good size and the resin is decent quality too. It needs a bit of cleaning up, but not really that much. It’s all about … Continue reading
Right, I think it’s done.
Almost everything I’m doing to the model is now done. Just some little triangles to paint, but I’m concerned I make an arse of it.
This has been my most intensive model build I think. I spent ages on it after work today and it’s finally starting to take shape. I’ve removed the panels on the bottom to fit the wheels, and I … Continue reading
The never ending saga of masking the Vic Viper model…
If only painting a model were easy. If I didn’t have to do any painting, I could complete a model like the Vic Viper in an hour. In order to paint, you need to mask, and you sometimes have to … Continue reading
So I’ve applied my Alclad White Primer and Microfiller and rubbed down a bit. Next I gave it the once over with Mr Color White. I’m still waiting on delivery of my Mr Color Purple, so I can only proceed … Continue reading
If I were only half as good as this dude. Plus Dune is one of my favourite SF films.
Didn’t get much painted today, although I have managed to get more of the model built. I’ve now masked it to within an inch of its miserable life and will get a white base coat applied tomorrow.
It may not look like it in the picture below, but I’ve spent quite a bit of time building this today. Most of that was taken up with the liberal use of Wet and Dry paper: so much so, my … Continue reading
This is one of those models that has been made for someone who just wants to slap the pre-coloured parts together with the supplied stickers. Meaning it’s a bit harder to airbrush than a lot of other kits as you … Continue reading
I decided to dig out my Novus and polish up both my cabs. They’re nice and shiny now.
Sometimes I should leave things alone, but a couple of things were bugging me. Firstly, the boosters on an eagle are not all the same distance apart; the front and rear ones are larger and therefore closer together than the … Continue reading
As well as still playing a bit Child of Eden (although I think I have a cracked knuckle as it went wonky and bruised, still hurts and makes my thumb, index and middle finger go painfully numb while holding the … Continue reading
Whilst on my recent holiday, I decided that all six volumes (recently published in English by Kodansha) would be my holiday read (it was The Goon last year). It has taken since October 2009 for Kodansha to publish all six … Continue reading
Opened up my Vic Viper kit today. The moulding isn’t quite as crisp as I was expecting from Atelier-Sai, needs a little clean-up, but nothing too major. The instructions aren’t going to be as easy to follow as I’d hoped … Continue reading
I sometimes wonder why I bother. My TB4 isn’t terrible (especially considering it wasn’t the best kit to begin with), but I’m still not happy. My weathering is way too severe (as always).
As with all my models so far, this is not going great. I decided to flat coat it with Testors Dullcote before moving onto the next weathering stage. You can also see how hopeless the stickers are (as well as … Continue reading
So I have finished painting the model (nearly) and gloss coated it. My masking for the red lines wasn’t perfect and a couple of little bits need fixed here and there. Next step is to stick the sticker things on … Continue reading
I have purchased a kit from HLJ for the princely sum of £7.40(ish). It’s a nice Vic Viper 1/60 kit from Atelier-Sai. I’ve not checked it in detail, but it looks straight forward to build. I was wanting to make … Continue reading
This is a picture of me on holiday:
Well, I’m off to the seaside for a week. It’s sunny just now, but won’t be for long…
