thats pretty neat idea there with teh bag andrei
Great idea! I think I'll try this on one of my Maschinen Krieger kits, too, it's popular to add weld beads for a rougher appearance.andrei383 said:...to make application easier and more precise, i looked to the pastry world and realized i could make a "piping bag" to extrude a bead of the putty. so i took a small ziplock bag and snipped off one corner and filled a small amount of putty into the bag...
Yeah, I have done that for certain Asian made car kits, like Fujimi, or Aoshima, just to see if the kit is a curbside or not (won't buy it if it is a curbside), really helps with determining stuff like that.ahmed malik said:if you're trying to buy a kit on the internet, and want to see what it comes with.. i.e what sprues it has, pe etc..., i find 1999.co.jp really helps... just search the model kit on google and add 1999 on the end, and choose the website which says www.1999.co.jp (btw do not go directly on the website, and just scroll down to see the images, they do images for every sprue and every page of instructions
I use the Testors Liquid Cement with the metal needle applicator. I found that magnetic winding wire fits in the needle tube perfectly and will prevent clogging completely without having to heat it up. I just take a bit of the wire and wound one end for ease of grabbing, and then melted a bit of spare sprue on that end. Then straightened the other end out and feed it down the tube. I've been using the same bottle now for the past 20 years so it has gone a longggggggggg way and it is still half full!FlipFlop said:I've got another one - if you are using glue with needle like Revell Contacta Professional or similar and if the needle gets clogged just take a lighter and heat the needle for a few (6-7 max) seconds...
