Good day fellow builders Sunday I completely another custom build for a group event I'm running. My process is simply this: Assemble the model Take it apart and organize the pieces in a container for prep. Scribe some panel lines to bring out a few fine details. Prime the model all in black primer followed by sparying white on certain pieces. This is to allow the vibrant colors to keep their shade. Paint using various lacquer paints(modo hk, hobby mio, and sms. Enamels and acrylic were used for fine detail work. Assemble the model again with the painted parts. Apply a clear gloss top coat Apply water slide decals in both 1:100 and 1:144 scales Once that was finished I top the model off with another gloss coat. Finally I mask off several secrion with ak camo putty. Now I normally like this stuff but due to the very warm weather it's been a challenge to remove. Especially in spots at the head. The model then is given a final top coat tying the whole project together. I am now working on a display base to really make the model stand out.
This is a two in one model kit is project. The Gouf is the hg Revive 1/144 and the Dodai is an old 80's kit. Both have been installed with magnets for better stability. Both kits have been black based, airbrushed filled by decals and other details. Wooden base was made with wood filler, foam, modeling trees, rocks, and the small hovercraft from another kit.
In order to find the best direction for my Modelbuilding Guide E-book series, I need some input. Specifically, what would y'all like to see in the way of step-by-step single subject e-books along the lines of my recent Williams Bros C-46 and upcoming Kinetic E-2C 2000.
