This is my first "real" world tank in over 30 years. Can't hide stuff ups by adding another bit like you can with sci-fi ;-)

Paints are Gunze, Vallejo & Tamiya with AK,  Vallejo & Tamiya weathering products.

some weird database thing it seems, ran some diagnostics and error cleans and it seems to have done the trick

Alright dudes, here is but a sample  :P


I think everyone who saw the Kenshin figures was initially put off by the clunky, chunky look. But the upside is the incredible poseability, I only paid about 1200 yen for each, and for that I think they were well worth it. You can do some really cool things with them.

I like the Revoltech F-22 Raptor, there is quite a lot of detail in there, and I like the mostly flat finish. One thing that annoys me a little about Revoltech mechas though, is that they always seem to be only half panel lined, I mean if they're going to panel line, why not just do all of it? But if you have the patience to do further panel lining with say, a Gundam Marker, that would look even cooler I think.

The Age-1 Gundam Head, just for measure, is 8cm from the bottom of the base to the crown of the head. I'm not sure if that would fit with a PG size, I think it's still a little too big, definitely much bigger than an MG. I actually have a few doubles to sell, if you're interested.

Hey guys, I finally got around to taking some pictures of my collection so far. They're not good quality by any stretch of the imagination but they're the best I can do with my phone.

Panel lining is simple as ABC.

A: Do not use gundam markers under ANY circumstances. It is a guarantee for sub-standard result.

B: grab yourself a tube or 2 of artist oil, recommended to get black, white and perhaps brown, and the cheapest, that's probably $1.50 that'll last you a life time. Also grab some lighter fluid if you are not a smoker from your local $2 shop - Now you've spent less than it costs to buy a gundam marker

C: thin artist oil with lighter fluid, dip brush in paint, dip brush in panel line - watch paint flow, wipe away excess with any cloth/paper whatever.

Basically the desirable properties of a wash or panel lining liquid are:
- it flows easily
- you can control colour - one of the most common mistake people make when using gundam marker is, it is black, which doesn't go well with all colours. Panel lines should be a darker shade of the primary colour but not necessarily black - grey will work a lot better than black on pure white - black on white looks like broken china.
- it can be wiped and will not damage underlying paint

Gundam markers fail on all of the above.

That is all...

Hi everyone...this sure is one lonely thread eh??

I've made some basic progress on the build since I last posted. The biggest difference is that I've decided to build a thruster cover for the back of the legs.
