I recently got back into modeling after my mom put my dad's half finished Ferrari F2001 in my room, since he hadn't touched in months.
So I finished it (all be it with a few missing bits and decals unfortunately)
After I finished this I realized I wanted my own to do from start to finish, so we popped down to a local hobby shop, and they had this. (98 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Rally Car)
Then I realized that I was getting addicted to it.
So I bought a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, and a Nissan Skyline R33.
The Evo was just finished yesterday:
And the Skyline is in production:
After I bought these I guess my dad realized he wanted to get back into as well, so he bought this as a project for the both of us. (Lotus Type 78 Formula 1 Car)
Also my workstation (currently clean because I moved it) and a group shot of my 3 completed models.
Holy mother of large images.
deeeeeng gurllll das sum sexy carsss
I have a bunch I've built and I'd take pictures of them if they weren't boxed up however I am working on a GMC Syclone right now so I suppose I could take some pictures of that at some point
So my brother slipped on water and dropped both of my ship models while we were moving out of the dorms :C
All of the little life-rafts on my USS Missouri floated away and the masts broke off :C
Tamiya 1:35 M41 Walker Bulldog
Skyline is finished, and progress on the Lotus 78! (My dad is doing the majority of the Lotus)
Updated group shot:
and their final resting places above our TV:
Cool Bulldog. I have a 1/16 scale one thats broken. Gearbox stripped out :/
So I placed an order for a Paasche H AB and Air Regulator yesterday. Will be here saturday. I picked up one of these;
Really excited, trying to take my time on this one. Bought clear and gloss coat, and have weathering supplies on hand. Also a proper hobby knife and nice brushes
Well crap, looks like the thread is dead
Thats wayyyy better than my first model! That looks great. Have you considered weathering an d gloss/dull coating it? That might help. Airbrushing is also a great way to improve your models
Looks good to me, although I can't really tell much from those pictures.
Started working on this yesterday:
Tamiya 1/35 scale Chieftan.
Monogram 1/48 scale F-20 Tigershark
Scratchbuilt Cardboard 1/72 scale Fw-190A-8
I have a lot more, but I'm not in a rush to upload them.
I don't think I would ever have the patience to scratchbuild something, even to a simple level. Kudos to you.
Also, I got myself a Stug III Ausf G. , IS-3, and F-117 to work on after I finish my exams. I'll be sure to post pictures as soon as I'm done them.
At what point of assembling the model would you guys begin painting? I'm currently thinking of painting a nice camouflage pattern onto my new Stug III but I'm sure it will be a hassle if I try to paint it on after I assemble it completely.
ugh, I really don't want to have to go back and photograph every single one
my desk at its busiest state
I'll get around to every individual model.... eventually....
what does "thin your paint" means? i don't do scale model painting or anything, i was just wondering because i like this thread and people say this quite often.
You thin your paints so they aren't so thick. So they don't just cover up all the details, makes it looks smoother. You thin different kinds of paint with different things, like water or actual paint thinner.
Makes them not look like this:
This may be a bit off topic but I thought some one might be interested,
this is the track plan for a HO/OO scale layout I'm working on.
what do you guys think?
I hate to bump this week old thread, but I need advice for painting.
I cannot post pictures (I cannot find my camera) but needless to say my paint jobs aren't that good. The big problem is that the troops don't look "weathered" I don't know how to paint dirt and they are pretty much just solid colors painted over the uniform.
They are WWI 1:72 scale figures. Help and tips is appreciated.
10,000 per train, aww ye.
Anyway I was looking into getting a T-90A MBT model. Anyone know where I can get one that's decent? I can't find any. Preferably in large scale.
I wouldnt mind buying a 1/350 scale HMS Dreadnought I saw on eBay, but Im a bit low on money at the moment so it will have to wait.
Ahhh I loved this thread! Can we make this also a plane RC thread too?
Have you guys heard of Miniature Wunderland?
but I can't be assed to buy depron or servos.
I also have literally two full shelves of models I need to start/finish. Many of which are rare and extra badass.
Reminded myself to post these guys, who seem to specialize in obscure resin aircraft kits.
I finally finished my first model, the Spitfire MkVb.
Sorry for shit phone quality. I'm ready to start my second model, the F-14 1/48 scale.
Thin your paints.
No, really. It'd look much better if you did, much more smooth.
Depending on how big your piece is, though.
