Re: Show Me Your Stereotypes (Non-Hurtful)

My Windows 7 just returned to show an issue that I had got rid of several months ago... for some reason I have no idea the network traffic interferes with the sound decoding turning impossible to listen to music (cracks, pops, etc). The more the traffic the more the noises and even the smaller traff...

Re: Evilbay

I am on a kind of sabbatical period of hobby shopping. The last thing I bought on eBay was a set of circular blades for my wife.

Re: 1/1400 AMT/ERTL USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C

From what I have observed the best way to achieve good results with brushes is to use very thinned paint in successive layers with a wide brush for base color and a combination of mask, thicker paint and a smaller brush for the details... That is what I found too Yan. I have never used an airbrush....

Re: 1/1400 AMT/ERTL USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C

I see... I don't think that it's 'very horrible' though!

Re: Using Ink Pen for Windows?

That's a good tip. I've done something similar but usually I wipe the excess away after 5 minutes rather than letting it dry overnight. Less hard rubbing that way. Initially I tried to do this after 10-15 minutes because I was in a rush to see the result but then it started to remove part of the lo...

Re: Using Ink Pen for Windows?

I know that the OP asked specifically about the use of pen, but here it goes an alternative. Lately I have made a 1/2500 Enterprise "E" so if it worked well for such a small scale it probably will work also to 1/1400. It's really simple and the trick consists on use the low relief of the m...
