Re: Masking and pulling paint

It had been sitting for about a week... I think I will try putting a gloss coat on between masking. I can see how that would protect the paint underneath the tape and cut down on bleeds. Thanks, guys!

Masking and pulling paint

Well, I'm putting together a non-trek model at the moment, but this is applicable to all subjects and genres. I used the tamiya masking tape to mask off some windows to paint them black, only to pull off the white paint that's the color of the majority of the craft. Horrible. Terrible. I'm using Val...

Re: Another K'Tinga...kinda

Finished. TONS of mistakes and imperfections. I learned a lot of good things doing this one though. Huge seams and gaps and warped pieces.. Lots of filling and sanding, even though I did miss some places... Learned a lot about both airbrushing and hand painting, washing and dry brushing... Hopefully...

Re: Another K'Tinga...kinda

I did some work on scaling back a bit of the wash. May still be a bit much in some places but this is the first spacecraft (or vehicle in general) that I've really done a wash on. Here are some pics post wash and matte clear coat. I'm still gonna do a little bit of dry brushing and fix some things h...

Re: Another K'Tinga...kinda

Welp, decided to use just two of the included decals and call it there. Then I did some black and brown oil washes. I hope I didn't over wash... http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g19/Mac204/Star%20Trek/F4B08F34-FAB4-4CAC-ACFE-2770223901BB.jpg http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g19/Mac204/Star%20Trek/...

Re: The Enterprise 3D project

Ok. Wow! The potential! Besides a general virtual tour there could be game modes! Borg invasion, Romulan boarding party mutiny. Maybe even non-trek stuff like survival horror/haunting/etc... That's be so cool! I wonder if he's gonna add in all the turbo lifts and Jeffries tubes..

50th Anniversary Star Trek Convention Las Vegas 2016

So has anyone else gotten tickets? I had been checking 2 times a day when I found they had released the first batch for sale. I was really disappointed that the Gold level tickets had all been sold at this year's convention. Garbage. Then I tried for hours and hours to get the Captain Chair level ti...

Re: Another K'Tinga...kinda

is that klingon logo relief 'embossed'? it looks to be raised somewhat that is a lot of texture to it - it looks like it was cut directly from a bulkhead or door entry way and seamlessly attached to the base. I actually made a template for each of the pieces of the Klingon emblem and cut each indiv...
