When you build a kit, do you follow the guidance in the kit, or take your own route? If it’s the latter, you may not be alone...
“If you spend time studying a sheet of instructions and you can see that parts suggested to be added early on, look likely to break off as the build progresses, you are already well on your way to finding those simple to navigate paths that well all crave”
Here’s part three of my look at the Kitty Hawk Su-17, this part completing the major assembly of this impressive model kit.
Applying decals is easy – you just have to know the rules of the game.
“What this experiment has shown me is that yes, both systems work, but one is considerably more time-consuming and risky than the other”
We continue with our retro build of the Hasegawa A-4M…
“Perhaps the most important aspect in the painting of any model is the preparation of the model and how you go about priming the surface ready for its final layers of paint”
When you need to add fine detail to your next model, these may be just what you need…
“Machining is exemplary and that means that in concert, the punches that pass through into the die plate, cut plasticard perfectly, no matter what size is used”
Not everything needs to be filthy to be interesting – sometimes, clean and tidy can be just as attractive.
“What I do have strong feelings about, is the idea that a model cannot be interesting if it is not weathered – frankly, that’s just rubbish”
I’ve just checked in on this blog whilst watching the football and I’m stunned how many modellers have visited today! I don’t know why, but I have had twice as many readers today to see what I’ve written as I had on my busiest day ever – and that’s incredible! So whoever you are, thanks for taking the time to visit this Blog and reading the nonsense that I write, day to day. It’s very much appreciated! 🤓
Time to put my feet up and recharge the batteries.
Now that I’ve started to offer daily updates on here, I thought it might be wise to tell you that I won’t be around again until Thursday as we are having a few days away. As such, there is update for today, but there won’t be one for the next few days until I get back.
Have a nice week and see you soon! 🙂
