MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Got a 3D printed Akira class starship in from Ebay. Needs a little sanding, but if it builds up as nicely as the Kyushu and Stargazer, I'll be happy.
  2. Nope, last two were from the LHS. I've tried ordering direct from BMF, but that didn't help.
  3. Built the Italeri/Testors 1933 Cadillac V16 Town Car. It's a fun kit, but keep in mind the main body is a multi-piece assembly. I found it easier to put the main part of the body together so I could sand/paint in one piece. I'll post pics as soon as I can.
  4. Another bad sheet of BMF. I can't seem to get anything that works. There are places on the new sheet where it's visibly not even stuck to the backing paper. I ended up sending a complaint to the company. I won't hold my breath for a reply.
  5. Awesome job! The movie makes a great two-fer with Wizards by Ralph Bakshi.
  6. Awesome! Curious to see how it builds up.
  7. They also make tapes as well. Would be easier than trying to cut strips.
  8. I usually paint carburetors with a base coat of steel or aluminum. Once dry I dry brush them with a little gold acrylic paint, then give them a light wash of black acryilic paint to get the detail to stand out. Then pick out the details with chrome or gold, depending.
  9. Citadel Miniatures paints "Abaddon Black". Thin with a little water and wash it on, then use a Q-Tip to wipe off the excess once dry.
  10. I know they're alcohol based and must evaporate really fast. I've found I can use a little alcohol as a thinner and brush it on, getting better results than with the pen.
  11. I've learned that if you have a fan on anywhere near where you're using the pen, that can cause problems. I keep one on my desk because the room I work in gets stuffy, and I have to turn it off before working with the pens.
  12. Clovis Ledbetter? Didn't he also have a moving company? I loved Jerry Clower. Forgot, it was Marcel Ledbetter
  13. Yellow-label "Easy-Off" oven cleaner. Haven't had it hurt the plastic at all, and strips chrome and the underlying coating pretty well. I recommend wearing a mask when spraying.
  14. Yeah.... Trying another route too. I took a look on Hobby Link Japan last night and found a Japanese version of BMF and ordered a couple of sheets. Unfortunately it's backordered. I'll try it out when it comes in. I'm doing the pens in the mean time.
