Hi Peter



Thread: Tamiya tape for curves
17/02/2018 17:17:29

Simon - just watched a video on YouTube which said exactly that thumbs up

Sean - another vote in favour. I also like Tamiya stuff. I use their sprue cutters - ridiculous price but far better, in my opinion, than others I've tried.

Cheers guys. When it arrives I will let you know how I get on. I'll have a look at YouTube thumbs up

Hi John

A repaint - all getting rather Simon T-ish face 20 Hairspray is one of those techniques which I believe is rather hit and miss. You can do the self same thing, or think you have, and get different results. I do prefer the actual chipping fluids although I can still c*** them up thinking

Anyway it has all come good now. Chipping looks fine and as you say the lighter coat will allow washes/filters (never have figured out the difference!) to work well. That figure really suits.

Hi David

Up and running thumbs up That is a clever way of joining the two parts of the horse's body. As you say that ain't coming apart. Clear now how well thought out the mounting to the base is. It is always difficult deciding how much construction to do before painting but you seem to have given it some thought and I'm sure it will work out fine. What filler do you use with metal? Can you use ordinary sanding sticks or do you have to use metal files on white metal?

Hi Bobby

Coming on a treat. You are right about that Tamiya Aluminium paint - looks good thumbs up

All the best with the rigging. Only done one biplane and it drove me demented. What will you be using?

Hi Ron

Fascinating as always. I like the way the gap above the fenders was sorted. Looking at the work so far I can appreciate how vital constant dry fits are. Everything looks so neat and square.

Hi Ron

Up to your usual very high standards. Looking forward to your cunning plan smile p

Hi Neo

Agree - work of the highest standard. Great skill and patience.

Hi Scottie

Tool rack is a huge improvement.

Your earlier comment reflects just how I feel at the moment "​I seem to be spending a lot of time modelling and not achieving very much." I think it is true that working at the level of precision and detail you are takes a huge amount of time. That tool rack could have been ruined with an impatient slip.

Just carry on Sir and take whatever time you need.

Hi peter

Superb as always. The equipment and the fabric on the trousers is exceptional.

Hi John

A superb result. I am sure Derek will be the first of many fantasy figures.

Hi Steve

Looks superb despite the heart stopping interlude. An exceptional piece of modelling and a great blog.


Note to self - Do NOT mix pigments with matt varnish! dont know

Hi Simon

The Shropshire judge awards 10/10 for sheer bloody minded determination. This will either be completed or end up being propelled binwards.

I do hope the slime can be removed.


Thread: Edward of Woodstock. The Black Prince

Hi David

Interesting thumbs up I am sure you are right regarding pinning. In my limited experience it is virtually impossible to position the pins correctly. Good CA or epoxy will be best. Just a case of supporting parts will the glue sets. I have read about white metal figures 'sagging' under their own weight but not heard a first hand account until Peter's. I had to smile though at the vision of Mr Day creeping around in the middle of the night looking for the culprit. Pegaso look to have sorted the problem with clever design.

Looking forward to this.

Hi Peter

I know you are a modest guy and don't realise just how good you are but this, as all your work, is superb. It is up there with the very best figure painters efforts.

Hi David

That looks impressive and unusual. Quite a character. I look forward to this and well done you for moving out of your comfort zone.

How will you assemble it? Pins, CA and/or epoxy? It will be heavy thinking

Thanks Gary

Sounds as if it was £12.95 well spent.
