I'll try to get there Sunday and have a look around, problem with getting there is I'm basically pretty lazy.

After a break of some 20 years I decided to try my hand again at some model building and painting.

A very small Star Destroyer kit from Bandai - sits on top of my work monitor. Used a bit of black panel wash to bring out the detail





My first attempt at gunpla. 1/144 GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X. I don't even know the show, I just bought the kit when I was in Hong Kong just because it was the thing to do Spray painted white with panel detail, all other colours I just put a bit of flat coat on. Sadly one wing panel is broken as the hinge was too big and ended up snapping when I tried to open the panel





My next project is a 1/350 scale IJN Battleship Yamato. Given the size of the piece I'm looking at having a go at airbrushing. I got an airbrush but haven't committed on a compressor yet. Any tips? I did find this one on ebay:

Tricky, as you tend to get what you pay for. And that is an inexpensive compressor...

I would however recommend getting a compressor with an air tank, as that helps keep the airflow constant.

Nice work Ralph. Can't go wrong with Bandai kits.

Bought a cheap model kit to test out a painting technique I read about online to achieve a real life car paint effect. Turned out pretty well in the end, although I learned some other valuable lessons along the way with building this kit, including:
- solvent glues should not be used on all parts, especially clear plastic
- don't use painters tape, especially over decals.
- don't rush stages, ensure that the glue is completely dry before moving onto the next stage involving those pieces.

Anyway, I was pretty happy with the way the paintwork on the body turned out. The intention is to use the technique on the Optimus Prime voice-changer helmet. Also looking at making light-up eyes. Haven't commenced yet but have bought the parts. Once it's complete I will post progress pics.

In the meantime, here is my model building effort - nowhere near as good as others on here, but hopefully fun to look at regardless...

Nice work. The blue finish looks smooth and shiny.
