    What tools/paints do I need to buy for Bandai kits ?

    You're probably thinking of poster putty or blu-tack. It's a blue reusable putty that is great for holding parts for painting.

    What tools/paints do I need to buy for Bandai kits ?

    I would suggest doing so for several reasons: 1. decals adhere better to a glossy surface, so if you are using decals, you need to put a gloss coat down beforehand. 2. It will protect the paint from other steps. Weathering solutions, handling, and even decal solutions can slightly alter the...

    Star Wars Imperial Dockyard.

    I'm really loving this. I love the detail and how industrial the whole thing looks. I may have to do something similar since I have a few Bandai ISDs.

    What tools/paints do I need to buy for Bandai kits ?

    I agree with what people have already said. For what it's worth, I have a page of intro tools and modeling tips/techniques. Feel free to check it out if you want And welcome the world of styrene.

    Thanks. A friend at Keeper of the Force posted a link for a truncated cone calculator: http://www.templatemaker.nl/index.php?template=cone&lang=en

    How do you make a tube out of sheet styrene?

    OK, so I'm trying to scratchbuild a Hoth Golan Arms Df.9 battery (the big white turret). I'm trying to build the center tube piece. I've measured everything out. The bottom diameter is 7.1 cm, top diameter is 6.9 cm, and the height is 7 cm. Is there a pattern for laying this out on sheet styrene...

    Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike by Bandai

    That is fantastic. You should grab a few photos of just the bike against a white background....really show off all the great weathering you did.

    Need help with a paint scheme for this.......

    Reminds me of something from Crimson Skies. I really like the design. I could it looking cool in a grey/blue scheme or an =http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/crimsonskies/images/d/d2/Plane_Coyote.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20090521181302off-white/brown . When I did a kit-bashed what-if plane I...

    Something odd about Bandai's AT-ST

    Something I recently discovered upon starting another walker is that the kit provides an optional piece that acts like a height guide to replicate the stance in the instructions. These are unmentioned in the instructions, yet the kit provides 2 of these guides, each one easily snapped off of the...

    1/144 Star Wars Millennium Falcon (The Force Awakens) plastic model BANDAI

    I think the fault lies with Disney more so than Revell. Still, we've only seen the Level 1 Revell kits out of the box. The pics of the Level 2 models look good. And going by the 1/72 measurements for the new X-wing, then the Revell level 2 should be right at 1/48. Yeah, the level 1's are toys...

    Heads up. Many of the OT kits have been taken off the international HLJ site, like the Sandtrooper, R2, and Vader's TIE.

    Bandai Star wars release schedule

    I think from what others are saying, that HLJ will not sell any NEW Bandai kits overseas. Their Japanese website has the Resistance X-wing and Falcon up for preorder, but the international site doesn't. Time will tell...

    BEST AT-ST SUBCONTEST!!!

    I was surprised too J. But don't think 0 votes means a bad model. I think you did a fantastic job, especially with the engineering to the leg joints.

    Woohoo. Thank you all for the votes. This was a great and fun side-contest, and I was glad to see all the unique approaches to the walkers. And thanks Nick for running this. :)

    Double layer hairspray chipping?

    I'd be afraid it would chip both layers at once without a varnish over it. I'd chip the first layer, then varnish, then chip the next layer. I did something similar here: http://www.rebelscale.com/models/sci-fi/rezna-p234-hovertank/ I painted a dark grey - chipping fluid - blue/grey - chipped...
