I will love this one
Yeah... dontcha hate when you pull a new model out and discover that a piece is missing. I bought a Pro-shop X-Wing awhile back that was missing one of the brackets that hold the wing pivoting pin down. Really a bummer when you have to scratch build or glue something down like that. But it happens.Grendels said:Too bad about the missing part, but I know you can fix it up right nice.
Yeah... That would work. But I'll probably just end up scratch building something that looks a bit closer to the movie. Its amazing what you can do with epoxy putty! Have I mentioned how much I love that stuff?? Which reminds me... I'm gonna have to get some more!Solander said:Catching up with this one.
Nice choice for a kit, and up to a good start!
As for the missing part - You might want to look for some early WWII tank or armor kit as a donor - there're lots of variations on the proper-looking spot lights in them.
I always like to make a game plan before I tackle a new project. Helps things go alot faster.Grendels said:Nice bit of planning on this. I am sure you will manage to get it all done up right.
Thanks guy... it'll come in handy for alot of different projects I've had in mind to use this new technique!Quaralane said:Nice work with the tinting there
Thanks guy... am getting there!rookie said:Really like what you did with the chrome, the light bars look good too. You are really going to town on this one, nice work.
It happens... I can probably scratch build the light. It's an old trick I learned back in the day. Give chrome a black wash and everything is right in the world! LOL Hey you're welcome for the ink/future tip... I'm just glad I was able to come up with it... been racking my brain for years trying to figure it out and am so glad it worked. Will save a buttload on buying fancy transparent paints!Les said:Bummer about the light.
The chrome is looking nice; and the printer ink/future is an awesome idea! That is what I love about these threads, so many good ideas... thank you for sharing!
