Why the fuck does no one made JSDF pilot figures, it's hard to substitute them as they have a really distinct mask and helmet.
>>10146520in my experience stuff like this in Japanese kits are decals. if it isn't then the kit is garbage and frankly you'd be off not doing it or trashing it.you can do it just by carefully masking it off with tape but I could never be bothered.>>10146532to be fair, British boomers get even bigger hardons over Peak British Empire stuff than the average American boomer does over a Tiger.I'm just glad there's going to be a 1/48 Hurricane kit available soon, last I remember I couldn't find any at places near me for reasonable prices.
>>10146738nvm I'm retarded it's in 1/32 lmao

Any thoughts on cricutters for cutting masks? This is as cheap as I'll probably get one this year?
Why do you niggers have so many threads? Can't you just have one like everyone else?t. gundamfag
>>10147217We have only two threads One which reached bumplimit and will soon vanish, and this one. Third thread is non-legitimate, as it was made by butthurt rusnigger
>>10146415>On a completely unrelated note, someone please recommend me a brush cleaner fluid that gets both acrylic and enamel/oils but isn’t as strong as Tamiya’s airbrush cleaner, thanks.Have you tried lacquer thinner?>>10146520Usually they're decals, but as long as they're straight masking and painting shouldn't be too troublesome.>>10147074He likely means current day, or at leats post-WW2, stuff since the JSDF was created in 1954.
>>10147220there's nothing wrong with the other thread
>>10147220>butthurt rusniggerI'm neutral on the matter but the fact that you claim that he's the one who is butthurt is laughable
>>10147244would you """neutral""" niggers kindly fuck off to /pol/ to spread your electricity prices psyops? Thanks in advance
>>10147289why don't you fuck off to /pol/ if you are gonna shit up another thread
>>10147289only poltards care what nationality their thread is made by
I fucked up the mirror part of the ir spotlight on a m60 and now I am re-buying the entire kit just for the spotlight and also bare metal foil from Hasegawa because by god i am going to get that perfect mirror fucking shine even if it costs me 100 dollars.
>>10147320Why not just order a replacement part from the manufacturer?
>>10147334anon is flexing on smg poorfags and just in time for busiest EEU hours
>>10147334It's split across like 2 and a half sprues and I also want to re-do parts of the turret anyway. My dumb ass just superglued the shitty provided string to the turret as the tow cable and the IR wire (also superglued down) goes over that, so replacing that is going to be a massive pain as well.And also I got a 3D-printed otomatic with broken suspension arms and shitty headlights, and the m60 just so happens to have basically identical headlights to the OF-40. All in all I can cannibalize a quite significant part of the kit.
Frame and wheels came along pretty nicely.I'm finding the AMT kit actually pretty nice to work with.
quick question lads. what would be most durable clear coat? one that i can use in common household. i guess something like automotive top coat but without the need for special spray gun and clean, dust free spray booth. also in rather small quantities. anime tits for attention.
>>10147464Automotive rattle can. It would help if you said what it's for. You might be good with actual furniture varnish.
>>10147413happy for you enjoying the build - it's what matters most in the end
>>10147464vallejo polyurethane varnish is waterbased, nontoxic, and very durable if you have an airbrush (not sure if that's what you meant by "special spray gun") but if you want rattlecans you're going to have to either use a spray booth or go outside. tamiya and mr hobby make great lacquer spraycan varnishes
>>10147464don't listen to >>10147466's lies and use the wood flooring topcoat instead - tried and tested by thousands of boomers, although I remember some of them complaining on their shitty php forums about fav brand changing the formula
>>10147466>It would help if you said what it's for.i got original victorinox swiss army knife for dirty cheap, but scales are terribly scrached so simply polishing it won't do so i got an idea for custom paint job. now i need some strong ass top coat so things ain't wear off in my pocket that fast. before you ask, i'm not gonna buy aftermarket scale that are like 10x worth what i payed for knife.>>10147469>vallejo polyurethane varnish>>10147473>wood flooring topcoatgot both on hand so i'll check them.thanks for answers all of you guys
>>10147466>using hardware store garbageenjoy your orange peel>>10147464Just use tamiya or mr hobby rattle cans they both make acylic options if you don't want to deal with laquer fumes.
>>10146738>>10147227>in my experience stuff like this in Japanese kits are decalsFunnily enough, this one doesn't have decals for it so it looks like I'll have to figure out how to paint it. It's one of Tamiya's kits reboxed from 1983 and the decals don't seem to have changed since then either. I suppose they weren't standard back then or something.
>>10147320Why don't you just buy an aftermarket spotlight? They come with mirror foil and the kit one is undersized (assuming you are building the dragon m60)@10147240Except that 80% of it is the schizo OP bumping it out of spite
>>10147289would you please shut the fuck up anon, literally no one here wants to listen to you cry about your gopnik ethnic conflict. I'm American, do you see me seething about niggers or beaners every 5 fucking seconds? no because this is fucking Scale Model General. post kit or kill yourself
>>10147610Just ignore and report them, keep the thread on topic.

This is my "Zero" A6M5Easy Model 1:72
holy shit you mongos
>>10147841there's gonna be at least 2 up for a while because these retards keep making another thread instead of using the already existing one because they are racist
Is it sad that I'm really happy to see my model used as the thread image?Because It's made my day.
>>10147881It's very reddit-tier anon
>>10147881if it makes you truly happy then it's kinda sad but it's kind of been a goal of mine to have one of my models featured as thread image, because it means I've stopped being terrible and progressed to just being at least "somewhat ok"my problem is I can't take pictures worth a shit so it may be a while until that happens
>>10147753interesting stuff anon, how many models have you made before this? good job with those decals, they seem have settled into the panel lines nicely.did you consider trying a pin wash? could really bring out the details even more and play up the scale effect.
>>10147918I used a phone in my back garden.>>10147894I don't even know what that means.I've been making models for a year, I'm just happy someone likes what I made.
>>10147918funny enough i used to get featured quite a bit when i was shit and everything I made was mediocreNow that I feel I've improved quite a bit I don't ever get featured anymore
>>10147881idk but it makes me happy too>>10147918>if it makes you truly happy then it's kinda sadwell i got no one else to show my models to. the forum boomers are tiring, my dad told me to grow up and build trains, and of all the friends and acquaintances throughout my life I only got one buddy thats tangentially interested since he does 40k. So if i get some respect here it means something.
>>10148002>well i got no one else to show my models to.that's fair I suppose. my parents are somewhat inquisitive (long story, I graduated college right before COVID and have been stuck here now because we'll be moving soon, basically the whole last 2-3 years threw a big wrench in all my plans). aside from that I just post my shit here and on scalemates in albums. just don't be upset if no one notices or cares. most normies will find it mildly interesting and cool then move on with their day. either way like I said last thread you did a good work on the Zero. I'll be painting Taiho's 1/700 planes with IJN Green probably starting Sunday so they can hang out together.
>>10147881>>10147984Fuck it man good for you. There's nothing wrong with being happy over the little things.
>>10147984I like your Zero.>>10147960NTA, but Easy Model are pre-fabs.
Whats the best resource for finding the right color shades for ww2 camo for tanks, planes, etc? is there a website that documents a load of it?
>>10148133>NTA, but Easy Model are pre-fabs.rip
>>10148133>>10148151lol, i follow r/modelcars and every 6th post is a premade diecast car and people flip out
>>10148137AK made a book for planes and one for tanks. It's not complete, but you'll find all the most important ones. If that fails, search on forums for the federal standard code. For example, FS34159. Every screen displays colors differently, but it's the closest you can get to the precise shade.Finally, some companies sells color sets for vehicles such as pic related, with the exact shades for every nation and theatre of war.
>>10147753>>10147960>>10148133I didn't write "I made this model" and in fact I specified the brand and scale to make it clear.But only now I realized that this is a thread dedicated to model makers.I'm not a model maker, I don't paint toy soldiers and military vehicles/aircraft, I'm simply a collector.The only thing I build and paint are the dioramas, I buy the vehicles already colored and ready to put in the diorama.But I don't have any dioramas of Japanese.So sorry for the inconvenience, good continuation.
>>10147879R*ssians aren't a race you idiot. You have to be human to qualify as a race.>>10147994Same though it might have something to do with the fact that I haven't posted any pics in a while either.>>10148137During WW2 many of the camo colors were issued as pigment pastes that were thinned with whatever thinner/gasoline etc. so the tonal variety was huge. The range and severity of course varied by nation, but in general if you're somewhere in the ballpark, it is most likely historically accurate.
>>10148510Not to mention even if you had a perfectly color matched paint from a paint chip off the tank you'd still need to change the tone since the 1/25 version reflects less light
C'mon, Peter.It's half a sprue off your existing T-72AV.You can do it. I know it.
>>10148630>"No"You will buy an Miniarm conversion kit if they bother to make one and you will like it.
>>10148637>MiniarmThey actually did bother to make something I wanted (in the Drozd T-55).But then SOMEBODY decided to go on a fucking sightseeing trip in Kiev, and now their shit is out of stock everywhere.
>>10148641>But then SOMEBODY decided to go on a fucking sightseeing trip in Kiev, and now their shit is out of stock everywhere.that was me, sorry anon
MasterBox should really step down their box game.
>>10148656Is it literally a single staple that has stapled both the sprue and the bag to the piece of cardboard?
More captured ukrainians.
>>10148641>But then SOMEBODY decided to go on a fucking sightseeing trip in Kiev, and now their shit is out of stock everywhere.We in Russia bought a lot of Miniarm conversion sets and started selling illegal knock-off copies of their sets (to fuck khokhols even more than we did in Bucha, lol). No Drozd set yet unfortunately but probably someday. Can sell it to you when we'll make one.
>>10148664absolutely splendid, a balanced masterpiece that reaches levels of realism worth a gold cup. The uniforms and faces are stunning. Personally I would have added some tears on the ground fallen from the afflicted faces of the losers
Bros i have a question. Is there any source of WW2 soldier miniature models that i can 3dprind for my dioramas? I dont want to pay 30$ for some random german tanker.
>>10148664Is this how russians are coping?
>>10148664>>10148680>>10148670>Vatniks are getting assblasted so hard that now they need to come to /toy/ to copesad>>10148693There are some patreons and some single files as well as some new project for a program where you can pose soldiers and export the stl files by some Croatians or something like that. Literally just google for it.
>>10148693>>10148703Looks like the program is still in development. Might be a cash grab scam as it's run by slavs lol. model-creator(dot)com
>PoV you have become der boomer I swear to God, I will finish them as soon as I get rid of a retractable couch and an armchair
>>10148656Why is it even in 1/32 instead of 1/35 or 1/24 like their greek mythology figures?
>>10148713to go along with your 1/32 WW2 fighter collection
>>10148711Haha look at this guy I may have 12 built and unpainted 1/35 tanks sitting on various boxes and shelves, but 12 boxes I do not have, no siree!
>>10148711>490 still stuck in poland
>>10148711It's actually a smart idea to hoard stuff, before it disappears from the market. Not only for less popular stuff like the Tadpole or the L6/40 but also things like the Fokker Dr.I or an M4A1 (75) Sherman that doesn't suck ass. I wish I had adopted this mentality sooner.
>No new X-32 tooling since 2001It's so tiresome
Hey /SMG/ I've traveled from /tg/s /hwg/ thread seeking advice. I do some pulp wargaming in the back of beyond, set in the 1920s and have recently been acquiring 1/48 scale biplanes for my air support. I've built and painted wargameing models for many years, but this is my first real dive into model airplanes since I was very young. And I have discovered that I fucking hate building model biplanes. Do any of you guys have any advice on how to put the wings together properly and easily? Getting the top and bottom wing to line up on the 8 to 10 struts is mind numbingly frustrating, and I probably spend more time fighting with that than I do on any other part of the kit. And then spend more time repairing them as they inevitably pop the fuck off while I'm working on the model. I love airplanes and I want to get more, but goddamn this is the most challenging thing I've tackled in a long time. Pic related, my WIP Japanese agony and my Chinese warlord Jenny.
>>10148747so is the kit good and accurate for what it is?
>>10148777Compared to the Italeri kit, Tammy's X-32 seems to more accurately capture the sensible chuckles of the real aircraft.
>>10148793I thought they were the same tooling though?
>>10148793Isn't that just Italeri reboxed? Or did I not get the joke again?
>>10148796Oh wait, you're right. Italeri made the only plastic kit of an X-32. Both Tamiya and Revell reboxed it, and the Tamiya rebox is the rarest one.
>>10148802gonna try to snatch any of them then because who doesn't love its smile
So supposedly Round2 says this fits into the GMC Astro 95 Cabover Kit, but I'm seeing around that it may fit into other kits. I can't really find any information on which models it might be accepted into. It's been a bit since it came out, wondering if anyone tried to install it in other kits? Like a AMT Kenworth W925 for example? Google yields nothing or barely any info.
>>10148814Good Idea, anon. Given how the tooling is old enough to post, don't expect the most detailed kit in the world. Attainable standards are advised, be grateful that the X-32 has a plastic model at all. I'm not much of an accuracyfag, and I'm grateful for Italeri's X-32.
>>10148711my stash is 3 boxes atm (I've started that fokker EV, even if it's just flash cleanup!)PZL P7, PZL P11, and then Hurricane Mk I, the fighters of the Polish airforces through XX century (in 72th) has begun
>mask off aerial refueling port to paint metallic>decal peels right off with the tapeFUCK I guess I'll sand it down again and paint the port in before the decals. Now its just gonna sit here basically done until the new decals come in.
>>10148925That sucks. Sometimes I clear coat over the decals
>>10148711you have much to learn young grasshopper
>>10148938You're going to get around to them soon anon... right?
>>10148938Is that a Japanese Austin Armored car I see up above the BA3/6? That box art kinda looks familiar..
>>10148932Yeah I had 2 layers of aqua gloss and then the vallejo satin varnish. I guess the decal didn't adhere to the gloss underneath at all though.
>>10148938>>10148711>backlogs that smalllol
>>10148961post yours kiddo
>>10148702If your army is worthless and can't win in real life, then let them win in 1/35th scale! Yeah!
>>10148976>>10148702>(...)army, who call itself second military force in the world, is worthless and can't win in real life against poorest country in europe with army of conscripts and volunteers(...)ftfy
>>10148941uhhhhhh>>10148945it's the Russian version from MiniArt, I think the first of the variants they started releasingAnyway, I did a little research and I bang out about 5 kits per year. I typically spend more time on home renovations, so competing for build time this winter and upcoming year:>finish my rolling shipbuilding workbench/tool station>partition walls in basement for new storage room>new shelving and workbench layout in basement>install wood burning stove>new roof>a good amount of planting and landscaping>maybe redo my bathroomAnd then theres the tinkering and designing involved with getting a modeling side hustle business going, reading books, and drinking. Oh I want to build some raised beds and start gardening this year too. I'll never understand people refuse to retire because they have nothing else to do. I could never work again and never run out of things to build and projects to do.
>>10147112They're fucking amazing. Used for both 1/72nd and 1/48th scale and you can do some pretty intricate stuff with them.
>>10149033>>10147112Unfortunately I never finished this other one in 1/48th because it fell off my table and snapped in a way I don't think I can fix (bent plastic, not just broken), but there are no decals on this at this stage, it's all Cricut for the text and roundels and hand cut/aligned for the colors including checkerboard
>>10149033is its software as shitty as the reviews make it out to be?and don't give me any>git gudnonsense, if it defaults to middle of the page as x=0 y=0 then it's made by literal monkeys
>>10149053t. didn't git gud
Das Werk's Amusing Hobby's T-72 is a weird one Its the first time I've ever seen a kit of a real vehicle not to come with a blurb on what it is and parts to create 3 idlers and drive wheelsForunately due to this you actually get 6 tow cable eyes and I will use the extra ones for the apocalypse tank
>>10149053I don't like the software at all no, I would say that is the worst part of the whole experience. It paywalls absolutely everything, and while I have CAD access and a load of other stuff I cannot get it to load up vectors of any sort, so I have made the above using scaled PNGs I drew in Photoshop. Cutter works amazingly but the software is suffering meant for iPad-owning mums and not for tech savvy or actually creative people. They really push their monthly paid plan that unlocks a lot of basic functionality that should be free and you can't use the Cricut without being connected to the internet.
>>10146532>1:32 fighter>big scale>no panels that you can open>no suspended weaponry>just a big empty hull
>>10146532More britbongershit, and yet us Aussies get reboxxed retroshit? Seriously, build your damn Spitfires already!
>>10149180truly incredible theyre still popping out these fucking toolings, this stuff is garbage
>>10149392They made it so that Harts and Bulldogs no longer go for scalper's rates, that made me happy at least. I'd rather have new toolings, but in the interim it was nice to at least get access to the models again.
>>10149392boomers still buy it because it's what they had as kids and grandmas still buy it for their grandchildren
Speaking of retroshit, Arifix's old 1/72 F-111 Pig hasn't been reissued since the 90s.
I built a fair amount of that shit. My recollection is that when painted with Humbrols they were basically photorealistic. Which is odd because today, armed with an airbrush etc., my output is more Twitterbro school than Spanish school.You see the problem here.
If I was to paint/weather one of those pre-painted diecast models would I need primer?
Finished Tamiya 1:35 Opel Blitz. I made the cargo area tarp from tissue paper and pva glue. I think the sides ended up too wrinkly but otherwise I'm fairly happy with it. The enamel mud splatter effect also reacted weirdly with the acrylic dust effect leaving stains. Overall fairly happy with how it turned out despite some mistakes
>>10148961>>10148972Are we posting our backlog now? I have a bit more on the attic.
>>10149929Yeah you really need to strip all the existing paint off first like you were painting a car. Strip the paint, sand the metal, prime, paint, clear coat. If you just wanna weather what you have then you can go ahead and start without doing anything else.
>>10149930>>10149932do you have any reference photos for the tires? I see a lot of dirty farm trucks and they usually have the dust on the sidewalls and clear rubber on the tread, as it gets worn off constantly as the wheel turns.
Whaler anon here, I ended up making my winch gears out of circles of plastic (punched and turned) with endless 040 thou strip glued on them. They actually almost work! Now I have one more gear left to finish and the band brake system for one side of the winch. Gonna finish one side completely so there's no surprises when building the second.
>>10149947Yes I based it on this picture. I think the way the wheel gets dirty varies depending on the tread pattern and road conditions.
>>10149935>1/72 Ju-287 and B-377 Damn, I'm jealous anon
>>10149974I used to have the adress of Mr. Huhn's wife. I wanted to get in touch with her to see if I could get a hold of the molds. But I lost the contact details in a move. She used to sell off stock of HUMA on ebay.
>>10149930Really nice anon. The tarp looks good but it would look even better with better materials
I listen to various boomer modelling podcasts and its always the same story. Build rate: 2 models a year. Purchases in the last fortnight: 5 models, three of which they already have multiples of.I wonder at which point this is just bargaining with death.
>>10149930For me that really works, very nice.>>10149950He actually did it the absolute madman
>>10150006Thank you>>10149998Thanks, yes I would have probably made the tarp from putty if I had been planning on it, but I just made it to cover the awful ejector pin marks on molded wood texture that are on the inside of the cargo area walls. I have used this method before in 1/72 and to make covers for stowage and it works well on those uses.
>>10150000I have an insain backlog although I am in no way a boomer, but it's all down to having been poor as a kid and stocking up while money is good so I have something when money is tight. Makes no sense given my income but I do this with other things and only realize I'm stupid once I'm home with the 8th pack of spaghetti for the cupboard

How are the Kotobukiya Ace Combat kits?
>>10150047I have them all (the modelers editions though) but I haven't assembled any of them. Anything you wanna see or want me to check for you? All other Koto kits I've assembled (mostly Armored Cores) have been absolutely excellent quality.
>>10150085I have looked into them a bit and they should be fine. Just wanted to hear from somebody if there were any issues with them. I have Kotobukiya's OG Nine Ball, 1/100 Alteisen and 1/144 R-1 & Huckebein which are all pretty decent.
>>10150085What's up with the modellers edition kits?
>>10150119>>10150047they're tiny, snapfit, and fucking expensive. Modelers edition don't come with pre painted parts and are a littler cheaper.
>>10150129>Modelers edition don't come with pre painted parts and are a littler cheaper.So they're just straight up better
>>10150173Yeah pretty much I don't know why koto even bothers pandering to snap builders for this sort of subject when they're guaranteed to look like happy meal toys OOB.
>>10150192>>10150173Kotobukiya is for people who don't want to paint in the first place. There's no shame in that, it's just wholly uncreative compared to doing it yourself imo. These kits were meant originally for the consoomer types that also want funko pops and shit not for people that like the build/painting process
>>10150207>These kits were meant originally for the consoomer types that also want funko pops and shit not for people that like the build/painting processDoesn't really seem like that when koto actually bothers with sharp molding and details majority of the time unlike bandai whos widely inconsistant in that regard. Ontop of the high price tag at that.

Does anyone have a tool or technique for making handle bars that doesn't involve spending $50 on the RP Toolz bender?
>>10151196Use a cheap photo etch tool, a pair of snipe nose pliers and just get good.
>>10150658It's not a trip, just a name. So it's potentially an anon that has been memeing on /k/ and forgot to remove the name.>>10150535God damn that looks nice. Great work.
>>10151196Drill 2 (to) holes in a pvc sheet?
>>10150658what's this meme about?
>>10150517Just 3d print a winnie pooh holding a flag and paint the flag of imperial japan on it
>>10150535niceone of the reasons I switched to planes is that they tend to look real good when clean/slightly weathered, which is not true of AFVs or any ground vehiclesI've yet to find patience to learn weathering on your level
>>10151454Nice. Thats an unexpected tank in their 48 range.I'll get that one for sure (i skipped the last couple of them since the T-55)
What genius decided the newer T72s should have the same tracks as the T80s but with thinner internal pads so their parts aren’t interchangeable on my plastic tank models I’m gonna go write a strongly worded letter
>>10151454This is gonna be tiny
>>10151519tracks and wheels look like they're one piece, wtfcute model, though
Looking to pick some brains here but I'd like some advice for how to best bring out detail on a model. I'm doing a custom painted Spitfire Mk. II for a friend (it's in what I'd call a variation of the Blue/Yellow Army Air Corps standard scheme) and the surface detail is very fine. It's a 1/48 from Revell but research suggests it's a rebranded Monogram kit from maybe as back as the 60s.Anyway, point is I have a very brightly colored aircraft I want to do detail highlighting on, but I don't want to do a full on blackwash (watered down black acrylic paint) since I dunno if straight black is the way to go or if it will contrast the bright colors too much. I did give the model pieces a gloss coat for the waterslides already and will be giving everything a Mr. Hobby flat topcoat when done.
>>10151547They're clearly notThat tow cable looks like complete ass and out of scale, why won't tamiya use metal ones
Gonna leave this herehttps://youtu.be/usrl2FUWhEE
>>10151636Tow cables are something that can be easily fixed, unlike the spade grips for the commander M2
>>10151628>but I don't want to do a full on blackwash (watered down black acrylic paint) since I dunno if straight black is the way to go or if it will contrast the bright colors too muchSimply use a lighter wash. Raw sienna with a touch of medium grey in it perhaps? And do use thinnered-down oil or enamel paints instead of watered down acrylics, usually gets you a better result straight away and more importantly you can clean off any excess/tide lines with a thinner-dampened brush after it has dried.
>>10151511And yet I still want one in 1/72...
>>10151636i don't get it either, surely would be cheaper to throw that in+pe than a giant block of metal that will do nothing but put extra stress onto the non functioning suspension long term

Has anyone of you built the Flugscheibe?
>>10149636That would be something I'd buy.
>>10151782Pretty sure Ken Overby packed it in years ago. Mirage are also doing one, but I get the impression their one piece tracks are a bit of a shit.
>>10151826I'm digging the squiggly bus seat pattern camo

1/72 S-modelThoughts?It was like, 10 parts, almost a toy, so I decided to practice painting and weathering instead

Saw this masterpiece on reddit
>start a new kit in April>rapid progress within a week, built and painted, only needs more weathering>job demands me to return to the office>fuckton of workload, takes about an hour to get to work>December approaching, no progress on workfuck this shit, I took this job for the pay and because it offered me to work from home but the government is forcing office workers to go back to the office
>>10151967Well if we're posting "Masterpieces" then I found this for sale on etsy for $522
>>10151967I hope that's a child's...
need to do the detail painting, probably tomorrowwanted to maybe use some photoetch for the landing gear and props but the kit just kinda sucks and isnt worth the investment in aftermarket parts, unless I really wanted to go all-in and try to overhaul it into a really nice looking kit.I will get some 1/700 aftermarket stuff for planes though for one of the carriers I have in my backlog which I'll eventually get to
>>10151967I know the guy that made this, he calls himself Cheef
>>10152293Why does the middle one not have the canopy painted?
>>10152291It's alright Anon. Take it as a learning experience, not many get to see well painted models and the people there can give you some good tips as well.And at the very least, you can tell people that you entered modeling competitions.
>>10152291>>10152293is what it is anon. chose not to go to last year's local show (I live on Long Island, there's only really 1 annual show in reasonable driving distance from me) because I wasn't good enough. wanted to go this year but I got a bad RSV infection. just happened this weekend, pretty bitter about it.keep your chin up, keep improving. at least you hopefully got to see some cool models
>>10151985My office is "recommending" 1-3 days of office work a week. Fuck that shit. I get all my shit done at home 3x faster, can do chores or paint instead of flattening my ass during downtime and don't have to spend an hour plus on transit (not to mention the savings from not transiting and overpriced lunch). Corona was one of the best things to happen for soulless office workers
Anyone know of a good spray adhesive that is sold in the US that functions like kwik grip?https://youtu.be/0FNQTxX_jT4?list=PLA1bRusvoCbSFn8ly2mKGRuzGHNBh8d2v&t=355

>>10152293>getting mogged at a fucking hobby town competitionLOL
>>10152447is that the one at the American Heritage Museum in Bethpage? I went there once like 6yrs ago, went thru the service entrance not realizing it wasnt the main entrance, so got to see the show for free
>>10152857There is Bayshore Hobby that is pretty good.
>>10151925I saw someting like that on youtube. Pretty well done.
>>10152017>$522Because it was made but Joseph Beuys.
>>10152291I've been there before with the small local contest, but the important thing is you get to see what the other models have that yours don't. That way, you know how to improve.
>>10151826I've built the squadron one.The Revell kit is garbage.
>>10151952They never downsized any of their 35 kits into 48 scale, and the already shown sprues confirm that its a 100% new tooling.
>>10151985>>10152751>Corona was one of the best things to happen for soulless office workersThis.> it offered me to work from home but the government is forcing office workers to go back to the officeHere the company wanted to strengthen team spirit etc, and cut "up to 5 days" to "2 days maximum" at home. 23 (!) people quit because of that.
>>10153249Well, can we see it?
>>10153275There isn't that much to see as its unfinished, and its super dusted because that fucking thing is too big to fit into my glas cabinet. So considering that aspect, the Revell one (i have it unbuilt in my stash too, the hand&head original boxed one too actually) is smaller, and would have been the better build. But well.Originally i intended to cover the base in snow, but never bothered to do it. Top section can be opened, and there is actually some roughly 1:72 sized interior, and i have yet to "click" the clear window pieces in place.
>>10152791That anon IS the redditor
>>10151943Is there a guide you used? Looks bretty gud
>>10151628>but I don't want to do a full on blackwashJust pinwash all the recesses and then do a grey/greyish white wash that is really thin
>>10151660>clean off any excess/tide lines with a thinner-dampened brush after it has dried.Wouldn't the paint layer underneath get damaged by White Spirit/Turpentine?
>>101534591) No*2) Clear coat if you're scared* (it will if you use tard strength)
>>10153459Assuming the gloss coat you've applied wasn't an enamel varnish it should* do a good job of protecting the paintjob here since enamel/oil solvents don't do all that much to acrylic paints (and vice versa). Just don't go too hard on the scrubbing, and stay well clear of lacquer thinner since that tends to eat everything. Possibly including the plastic itself if you're careless.*As in it usually does, but as always you will occasionally just get product X and product Y summoning Azathoth for no apparent reason the instant they touch each other.
>>10153481hmm, i see...good to know anon, maybe i should buy some oils from my local hobby store. they have those small winsor and newton oil tube thingies
>>10153454Nothing specific, really.No preshading (and I fucked up with base color), just oils (fading, contrasts, artificial shadows) + washes + enamel streaking grime + AK/Ammo weathering for mud and dirt. And also some scratches with graphite, chipping and aluminium pencils (though I think I overdid this one, thought it will fade more under enamel layers)
>>10153509Don't oils dry for like a month?
>>10153510I squeeze them on the cardboard first (used model box, lol) to soak any lineseed oil and other long-drying shit from the paint (wait 5-15 minutes to dry up a little) then wet up my brush in white spirit and apply on the model. White spirit dries up fast.The idea is to "replace" the thinning medium\retarders with fast-drying one. Of course if you apply oils on the model straight from the tube, it will dry for weeks. Been there, done that.
>>10153514good tip, i will keep this in mind thanks desu
>>10152293>>be surprised you got rekt at model competition>made zero attempt to detail the canopyAnon, I...nvm
I know that there is at least one anon interested in the Tadpole but it was impossible to find.Well, it's back in stock everywhere.
>>10153609im gettin some brit lower vibes from the woman on the right. could sever parts from my sprue if you catch my drift
>>10153503Buy Abteilung 502, scrub
>>10153643This is almost as ugly as all the Games workshop tanks. Less retarded though.
>>10153722What did he say
>>10153728T. Zoomer who has never opened a history booknigger, GW guard tanks are a Mashup of ww1 and 2 era tanks
>>10153728the difference being the historical tanks had a reason for looking and operating the way they did, while 40k is literally just rule of cool (because WWI tanks were cool, and retro ideas in hyperfuture scifi is cool)
>>10153805>while 40k is literally just rule of coo40k got ww1 tank design completely WRONG, by the way. The idea of rhomboid WW1 tanks is to traverse trenches - they have the frontal wheel RAISED, not to be stuck in a trench or a ditch. And now look at the Land Raider. It is reversed, it is more efficient when moving BACKWARDS.
>>10153850yeah and for some reason it never clicked for me until recently why the guns were in sponsons -- so they could fire down the length of trenches as they crossed them. thought it was just for a total 360 degree coverage type thing
>>10153609It's a Hobby Town store, not IPMS>>10153787That doesn't change shit, wh40k tanks are ugly as fuck, only a few FW designs and Marine ones are ok. The new Guardsman tank is also kind of ok, it's getting there.
Thoughts on the Das Werk 1:16 STUG III?
>>10154043>run out of profit making the same 5 ww2 tanks>make them in 1/16 insteadI hate it.
>>10153850In that case, I wonder if anyone modded their land raider to be more faithful to ww1 tank design? Due to the way a Land Raider kit is assembled, you need to do extensive kit bashing to simply invert the tracks. You have to slice, carve and shave-off pieces. The Land-Raider is GeeDubz an online store exclusive (as part of the slow and steady squatting of marinelets) for $85 USD. I suggest getting a pre-owned Land Raider, dumping it in paint stripper (especially if the previous owner didn't thin their paints), and have fun kitbashing.
>>10154056What's makes this decision more baffling is that they still have plenty of WW2 tanks to make kits of. For example, no one made a plastic model of the AC1 Sentinel, and I bet the Aussie Shitposters would splurge on 1:35 sentinel tanks.
>>10154043The amount of work to stop it looking like a toy would put me off. Imagine the weeks just working on the tracks.
>>10154076Takom just released like half a dozen made up super heavy tanks, they're pretty much the only brand that has regular releases that aren't just tigers or shermans
>>10154115Based TakomHopefully they make an AC1 Sentinel to fill in the Aussie niche.
Is there a good brand for 1/72 ww2 styled buildings/trenches and stuff like that? Nearly all of what I find on ebay is OO Scale which is 1/76 right? would that work?
>>10154139It would be close enough. And anyway, some stuff sold as 1/72 is actually 1/76. It's the sort of thing where you might notice if you have a 1/72 german halftrack and a 1/76 german halftrack side by side, but with generic terrain like that it's unlikely to make any difference.
>>10154043Garbage made for boomers who like the idea of a large scale model but will never actually build it, the stash equivalent of a garage queen.>>10154115Still hoping they do an XM803 since their new VT1 came with an extra set of wheels and the XM803 has the same suspension...knowing my luck and model trends though they'll probably make the ugly German version instead.
Skyraider is almost done but I'm getting sick looking at it. It's not coming out the way I had in mind and now I'm just bummed as I try to finish and it get it out of the way. Any of you guys know of a good semi gloss varnish that would go down smoothly? The Ammo mig shit I used gave me a disgusting rough texture which is weird since the Ulta matte went down perfectly for the anti glare. Either way I'm getting sick of this kit and it doesn't help that my dumbass bought another one at a con for $40 since it came with the hard to find cutting edge Non-Armor conversion set to backdate it to an AD-4N
>>10154236Here's another angle of this damn project. It'll probably be a while before I even attempt the AD-4N since this kit has really tested my patience. It'll probably be a while before I build something else honestly
>>10153782He deleted his post because he forgot his anime pic, it was this >>10153505
>>10153787>B-wah-bwam-bubShut up dumbass. 40k tanks have their tracks on backwards you absolute mong. Nothing you say will make them or you look less retarded.>>10153805The difference being the historical tanks had a reason for looking and operating the way they did, while 40k is literally just redditor tier basedjacks mashing shit together they understand nothing about. The later stuff is a bit better from what I've seen, but their legacy is pants on head retarded. Like a 4 year old that once saw a gun/tank on TV designing weapons.
>>10154242Pretty neat, but are the bombs supposed to look like rotten watermelons? The texture I mean.
>>10154329>>10153850literally mind brokenlets see some amazing kitbashes that you think is ebin then

>that discontinued resin kit that will never be yoursWhat's her name /smg/
>>10154521resin sucks to work with and is too brittle i will never buy a resin kit
>>10154521Most Great War resin kits released before I was old enough to know about them, and a whole bunch I will never get around to before they go out of production.At least I have had reasonable luck finding [spoiler]vacform[/spoiler] kits (forget if /toy/ allows spoilers, but doing so to hopefully protect anons from the horror).
>>10154557And it doesn't, sorry you had to see that /smg/.
>>10154558I can't believe you've done this
>>10154473Because the "baby game" paints have reduced oil content so they don't take weeks to dry, idiot.
>>10154587or you can just put them on a piece of paper for a couple minutes and not pay extra for marketing aimed at braindead children
>>10154589The paper removes the excess oil that surrounds the paint, it doesn't magically remove oil from the emulsion. I admire your confidence though. I wouldn't even dare speak out anonymously if I were that misinformed.
>>10154591cope with buyers remorse harderi bet you buy primer for babies too
>>10154591>he has never cut his linseed with varnish/drying medium/thinnerChildren these days have access to internet. Is it really that hard to google? Stop buying repackaged shit
>>10154473>>10154599I have a set of abt502 because I can never be bothered to mix various shades of mud n shid from burnt umber and yellow ochre.I also have 2 spray cans of black primer that I can just slap on my models and get it primed in 30 seconds. I do however refuse to speak with any psychopath that uses acrylic primers.>>10154542Really depends on manufacturer to be honest with you family manSP designs for example makes top notch shit with decently soft/malleable resin. You do have to remove the casting blocks though, which can easily be fucked up. Resin figures are also great because their folds can be sharper than plastic (and can also be far worse, again depending on who makes it)
>>10154580>>10154606Next time I do a vacform I will drag /smg/ through the process. THE KIDS MUST KNOW.
>>10154643The kids will just shit and piss themselves at the though of learning things and using your hands, then tell you to just buy/3d print something already made
>>10154335It was supposed to be cast texture but I guess with my rush to try to finish this I forgot to sand it down to make it less pronounced. I probably might go back and do it and repaint it in a darker shade of olive
>>10154521The rare and obscure vacform series of 1/72 1920-1930 airplanes The guy who made them died in his 90sBTW have you noticed how Covid have reduced the amount of boomer modelers and model manufacturers? Some died, some retired afraid of the disease (Whirlybird)
>>10154669Assuming you aren't shitposting, imagine>All the fragility of a thin plastic kit>All the filling and sanding of a resin kit>All the scratch building of trying to make a diecast have some detailAll this can be yours, in the form of a a chocolate mould shaped like plane parts! Instead of making delicious treats in the wells, you can cut the plane parts out and after (scenes missing) you will have a lovely model of a less common aircraft that is unlikely to get an injection moulded kit!>>10154644I don't know what side of the fence I fall on here. I like nice kits, I'm not some grog who thinks that only bagged 99p Airfix kits are acceptable and Hasegawa is demon tier high quality, but I also don't like the constant creep towards shelf queen "hyper realism" kits that charge 150 dollars for a 1/72 model that you aren't ever going to build. I actually don't hate vacform as a technology, I use it to reproduce certain small parts I scratch build (mainly canopies) in the same way that some people use home 3d printers and laser cutters for their hobby. That being said, full vacform kits are a special kind of suffering and I guess it will fall to me to subject /smg/ to it over this Christmas.>>10154747I think I might know who you are talking about, if so it was quite sad to hear of his passing.
>>10154759Vacform is pretty evil, but the worst kit I've ever had was a balsa wood kit many years ago for christmas. I don't even remember what the kit subject was, some sort of airplane or zeppelin, but the goddamn thing was literally just a box of sticks. Not even cut-out forms like Guillow's balsa kits. Just a box of assorted sticks.
>>10154640What are your rattlecan primers if not acrylic?
>day 16>sprut+490b+apoc tank from super hobby still hasn't arrived via "Post - package (priority)"Do these fags ship shit via truck? I figured priority shipping would mean via "Plane" and would've arrived by now.
>>10154845>super hobbyWhere are you located. I got all my packages from them in just over a week or so. Then I switched to plastmodel because they are also in Poland and just 10% or so cheaper. Their stuff still arrives in about a week (euro).
>>10154845>>10154854Ehhhhh I've used them regularly for almost a decade and never seen more than 4 business days of transit. Sounds more like another funny meme UK/EU border problem. I recently had that from Japan where my parcel spent a whole damn month before getting processed so you're probably just gonna have to wait
>>10154643Vacform? Literally impossible.I was looking at some at a show last month, complete strangers came up to me and told not to do it. Even the guy selling them had a guilty look on his face like I'd imagine (obviously) the cashier in a porn shop might wear.
>>10154840While I have no idea what primer he uses, if it comes in a rattlecan odds are they're lacquer or close enough to lacquer. Spay can paints, whether primer or not, tends to be pretty spicy stuff.
>>10154893I have one as a stalled build. What stopped me was the absoleute mess the sanding down of the pieces made. I was completely covered in styrene flakes.
>>10154759>Assuming you aren't shitposting, imagineI wasn't, never heard of vacform before, now I'm scared properwas the bubbly luftwaffe prototype plane with two propellers mid-fuselage that some anon posted in the recent months a vacform?
>>10154669Looks like this. Here the parts are already roughly cut out of the plate.
>>10154911ok, I'd rather try my luck with one of artesania latina's ships of the line (no prior experience in building wooden model ships)
>>10154845Are you in the US? Super Hobby is great and legit but their shipping always takes a month. Priority is usually a month, the cheapo option is usually 5-6 months so never get it. You honestly fucked up ordering so close to the holidays since around now international mail gets fucked nsi expect it to take even longer.

Built Takom's VT-1-2, good kit. The decals are atrocious though, they're insanely thick, if I knew beforehand I would have cut the clear film off around them beforehand but too late so excuse the silvering. Also a little disappointed by the lack of detail in the gun breeches considering how visible they are depending on how they are posed but not a huge deal since realistically not a lot of people are going to be posing this thing at full gun depression.

What ratio of thinner to paint should I be using for hand brushing Vallejo paint? It always seems to be gritty or thick for me.
>>10155491Ah, fair enough. I had just assumed it was the Russian naval one.
>>10155613There no formulaEverything depends on atmospheric conditions of where you are and the way that particular batch was made. Just look at videos of other people using it and then experiment to get a feel.
>>10155650>There no formulaThere's*hands no work good unga
>>10155613>What ratio of thinner to paint should I be using for hand brushing Vallejo paintgenerally speaking, 1:1, even slightly more paint than water if possiblebut like other anon said, temperature and humidity affect everything. experience is the best teacher
>>10155657And sometimes even the trusted companies slip a stinker through QA

>>10155777Any suggestions for painting a MG34?
>>10155782just look at pictures of the gun itself.for the metal parts I'd probably use Dark Iron, the stock you're on your own, maybe Linoleum Deck Brown, Red Brown, or Hull Red.

I wash my brush, take most of the water off on a napkin and whatever is left on the brush I pick paint up with from the wet palette and that is sufficient. No more "thinning" required for brush painting. Using mostly AK Gen3, but have an assortment of other shit as well. Only Tamiya is horribad to brush paint but ideal for airbrushing. Maybe the only one where the 1:1 with water would be thinkable so it doesn't instantly dry up.
>>10155853>Me complaining about people complaining about vatnik derailers and thus derailing is better than either of the previous derailmentPoetry>>10155782Anon you do have an internet connection, right? You know what google is?
>>10155996>Anon you do have an internet connection, right? You know what google is?I won't answer that question.
AIRFIX NEEDS TO RERELEASE THEIR 1/48 LIGHTNING NOW THESE SCALPER PRICES ARE RIDICULOUS
>>10155487Shame i Liked amodel even though i never had any of their kits but they had quite a few rare ones even if its was ridicolously expensive
What's a good airbrush that's within the $100 dollar range?

Aliexpress resin figure knockoff comparison.Left = ZXZ Resin Miniatures Model StoreRight = Resin KitsZXZ is noticeably sharper.
>>10153290Nice. I especially like the civilian version they made. I would have also never bought any of the kits but I got the Revell kit for christmas last year. It is compact but has less detail than the squadron one.

>>10155192Very nicely built and weathered. Only criticism would be the wrong colour. Gelboliv is very different from the shade you used. Looks more like Tamiya's khaki drab.
>>10156329r*ssians are scum that delude themselves that they're human.>>10155054When's the video going to drop my main man?
>>10155774That's Gunmetal (which is probably one of my favorite colors of theirs), so anything that looks like the kind of metal you see at the end of a gun would be fine.
>>10156398Jesus, absolutely rent free.
>>10156148>>10156158Do not get the Talon it's garbage, idk why it's really prone to issues.>>10156195It's NATO green because I was going to do the what-if camo but decided to be lazy.>AK real color makes GelbolivNeat, gonna use that for my leopard 1 resin kit>>10156329Not true, Germans are cringe.
regrettably it's time to move to the [Z] thread.It's humiliating, but it can't be helped.
>>10156494I'd rather we just have a thread that remains on topic and manages not to have various shades of slav screeching at each other. A man can dream.
>>10156189>>10156192what did you expect from recast of recasts?
>>10156552Single digit IQ post.
>>10156491>Do not get the Talon it's garbageexplains why i never hear much about it, though i have heard good things from the few times i've seen it mentionedthe other 3 are definitely solid picks though
New Thread, move over whenever>>10156620>>10156620>>10156620
>>10156495not gonna happen our fellow snownigger here is coping over lost Kherson, so he's gotta shit up as many threads as he can
>>10156036Thanks G. I'll pick some up after work tomorrow and give it a try sometime soon.
>>10155995you should post your models, anon, I'm sure they look lovely with your completely unthinned vallejo paints
>>10156911I don't paint many AFV models with brush, but here are the models for the Sniper Elite board game I did brush paint. I'm not going to comment on your reading ability as I doubt it would make much of a difference.
>>10156911This is the closest to an armor model that saw extensive brush work, I think. Now let's see your models, anon.
>>10156491>It's NATO green because I was going to do the what-if camo but decided to be lazy.I see. Still good job on the paint. There were some few instances of vehicles in only NATO-Green. The Marder 2 prototype comes to mind.
>>10157259is that the 3d resin kit? or did you just buy it and weather it?
