  1. So are they reboxing the Polar Lights 1/350 NX-01? They must be surely?
  2. Thanks for this. I'm totally going to steal it all when I build mine.
  3. Apparently... 1.1. What is the difference between Model Color, Game Color, Model Air and Premium? Vallejo offers four different water-based chemical formulas in these colors lines, each one created for a particular segment of the hobby market, but all compatible with one another. Model Color and Panzer Aces are creamy, highly opaque acrylics formulated principally for brush application: the two ranges total some 246 matte colors and mediums, and 8 brilliant alcohol based metallic colors. Game Color has been developed for tabletop games. The range consists of 119 acrylic colors, washes and inks; designed for painting small figures, the formula has a lower viscosity than Model Color and a resin more resistant to frequent handling. The colors provide opaque coverage without loss of minute detail. Model Air is a line of 129 colors which have been formulated especially for airbrushing, although they are also frequently used for painting small details with a brush. These product lines are further augmented with a line of Washes, and a complete assortment of Medium, Varnishes and auxiliary products. Premium Color, a new range of 51 colors and 8 auxiliary products, developed with a new hybrid acrylic-polyurethane resin of extreme strength, has been designed principally for use in an Airbrush and for surfaces exposed to handling and exterior conditions.
  4. Hello, Not much to add and bit late maybe but the best ever tip I got on masking is to put down another coat of the original colour over the tape. That way any leaks under it will be the same colour and it will seal it up. Works brilliantly. As far as I know the main difference between Model Color (sic) etc is the thickness, they can all be thinned to be airbrushed. Nice work too.
  5. Thought so... last question. Possibly. How did you get the lovely graduated glow effect?
  6. Wow. You've done some great stuff. Thanks for sharing them all.
  7. Makes sense, I've been looking at mine and wondering how to light that bit. They lit or just very well painted?
  8. Good stuff. Stealing this totally for mine. How did you light the bits at the back that look like tube bits? Far right bottom picture.
  9. More great stuff. Not much sci-fi gets attention on here, but I do love a lit up model. Thanks for posting them.
  10. I knew about the no windows, I have it in the stash but have never seen one built and lit! I might steal your ideas on it, funnily enough my bank holiday build is planned to be this kit. What's the Klingon kit? Cos that's also fantastic.
  11. Great stuff. And great pics too. Nice to see a lit built up Kazon. How did you light it?
