In Topic: Modeling things you hate/love

21 April 2015 - 07:21 AM

Dislikes:  Rubbing through the paint on the edges when trying to polish out a model.  BMF work, I do it but not fond of it, Going offline when trying to use a sharpie for detail, or brush painting !! And cutting myself deeply with the xacto !!

 

Likes:  Everything else that building models brings to me. From an idea that I have to research up to the finished build, and the great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that I get.  And for searching for and buying kits/supplies..  And mostly I enjoy the friendships that these little plastic wonders have brought to me. I have wonderful friends that are there to lend an idea and advice, and to even giving you a kit or parts you need !!  THAT's what makes it all special !! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

In Topic: "Exciting" new release ?

I agree that these kind of kits are not for everyone, but mean a lot to some so we should respect that. What we may like may not be the same taste for others. But I do have a problem with them putting out some of the older kits again with poor molds that just make building them next to impossible. Or at the very least, make them so difficult that it's not enjoyable to build, and stuffed back in the box to be stacked up in the " collectible" pile ! And then just wish you could build it. Sure your individual skills at making it buildable will play into that, but for many it will be a big disappointment and make you think twice about buying a re-release next time. I'm all for bringing these older kits to the market once again, but however i'm not for that if it's just simply for being a cash cow for the companies regardless of the quality of the product, at today's prices.

I've not had any problem with the gold. It's worked very well anytime i've used it.
