    Nice!! I like the flat black finish over the red. Not a Ducati fan, but, when this came out I had to purchase.

    Really like the paint!
  3. gerdog added a post in a topic Would you all advise me on how to build and paint a rocket?   

    Thin elmers wood glue with some water, and brush on the balsa wood. Let dry,and sand between coats. I just paint the cardboard tube, bur I suppose you could apply the elmers as well.
  4. gerdog added a post in a topic So why has the price of model kits gone up?   

    Makes total sense.
    Any hobby that one totally gets into is expensive!

    Go with the gloss yellow. I have seen these at air shows.
    Apparently - side note - when the german luftwaffe ruled the skies over Germany, in 1941,'42, some of the cockier pilots had the complete me 109 painted gloss yellow.

    Looks good! The 1/24 Airfix Typhoon looks like it will be awesome in the detail dept. when it comes out.

    I have this kit as well and will most likely paint in a copper tone metal flake. Really have not given the detail up accessories much thought. Like you, I do not work fast, and have about 100 kits that need to be built ..... currently trying to finish a Rupp snowmobile dragster.
  8. gerdog added a post in a topic New motorcycle modeling site just started on facebook.   

    Cool. I will most likely visit that site as about 50% of my modelling is motorcycles with the rest being cars,trucks, and aircraft.

    I also understand resistance to Facebook.

    I would like to build the testors 1/4 scale street hemi and use a wrinkle finish on the valve covers. I had thought about applying a glue to the covers, then dipping them in sandblastiing sand for texture. Then apply paint. Thoughts?

    The catgirl bike is the batpod by Moebius.
    As for the gloss on the pilot, I just never thought about dullcote. Good idea!

    I built this bike several years ago but kept it stock. I have the 1/6 scale Kan o tuna but just have not gotten around to starting. Nice job blending the color on the fender and tank.

    That's an excellent idea. A person could do even an airplane or other item in a bottle.

    I can see where the decals could be a nightmare. Good Job!

    1/16 German pilot finally done
    ThisTamiya pilot has been sitting in my to do list for at least 12 years. The eyes are the absolute toughest part of the build to get right. This is my second figure build. I hand painted the whole thing and, realize I could do better with airbrush. A flat black wash may have added detail but I am not a good washer, so I avoided it.
