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...

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

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...
