  1. I think if you made a mold at this point, more then a few people would like to get a resin copy of the bust.
  2. Looks like Evolution Miniatures 35150 & 35151. http://www.evolution-miniatures.com/35/index.php?stro=4&stolbec=5&skip=20
  3. Nice, figure painting without face painting. Who’s figures are those?
  4. Working on some painting of this Wookie. Still have more to go, plus hood.
  5. Another product I like for welds is Archer Fine Transfers 3D surface details http://www.archertransfers.com/AR88005.html I have used them on Tamiya M41 with easy. http://www.ipmseaglesquadron.org/ES-Forums/index.php/topic,1472.msg7195.html#msg7195
  6. And here I thought it was going to be a MiniArt ball tank but no, I think so much better.
  7. Thanks. I wish, he still in the same condition. I haven’t figured out how to do the hood. I couldn’t get the putty thin enough for me to work with. I am sure it’s just user error. I think I might try tissue and glue next. I have been playing around with some figure painting and hope to apply the techniques to him so all hope isn’t lost. Just need to find the time.
  8. I would use Micro sol or Micro set for decals. If you still have slivering, then carefully with a new #11 blade, poke a small hole in the center then reapply the setting solution over the top that should help pull that area snug to the model. Also before applying the decal add future or gloss coat in the area of the decal, that should level surface and allow the decal to adhere better. Then apply the finish you want (gloss, satin, flat) over the decals when dry. For the nacelle drop, I would probably leave alone for this model. In the future I think sanding front half of the pylon would help raise the rear but I am not that familiar with the kit. The trick would be to get both pylons and nacelles to the same axis. HTH
  9. I agree. I used to not like Vallejo paints but using their retarder makes a world of difference for the airbrush. Also the pressure used and length of spray can add to a dry tip. I always have a qtip with window cleaner on standby to wipe the tip ever now and again. A quick air spray away from the model before I continue painting.
  10. I need to finish my Tamiya bulldog http://www.ipmseaglesquadron.org/ES-Forums/index.php/topic,1472.0.html I really like the price point of the kit. I think the AFV Club/Skybow kit is probably better but the M41 is not my thing so I am not 100% sure. Since you already messing with resin why not make a mold of the legs from the knee down. Then you add them to base before you add the water.
  11. I would agree, a Tamiya M41 Walker is a great kit to get your feet wet again. I like the dio idea and what you have done so far. One thing I like about the reference photo, is the first guy couldn't give two beans about being on that patrol, while the other two seem more motivated about walking around in the water.
  12. Finally had time to mess around with apoxie sculpt to make a cloak but it looks more like a shaw. If this doesn't work, Cheewie's cousin can play the wolf in little red riding hood.
  13. Playing with a painting mixing app I couldn't get close to the Magenta mixing reds and blues and pick a third color.
  14. I have found that one has to use a primer with Vallejo paints. What was Vallejo color number you like?
