Awesome thread. Mr. Cheng...... could you please list the tools of your trade..... I know you have mentioned in your various threads, but you should make a general list so people like me knows what types of steps you go through.
I know you use a Badger 200 single action with the upgraded fine needle and head. Do you use those parts on all the steps of your builds? meaning like the main body parts to the fine panel shading that you do???Pressures etc... Also looks like you use the cup for the paints....is that cup big enough when painting the main body of the valk? or do you have to refill the cup in the middle of painting? Looks like the airbrush kit comes with glass jars to hold alot more paint than the cup does...
Also...what are the painting steps and types that you use? and in what order? I know you use Tamiya acrylics for the base color, then you use the oil wash for the panel lining (brand?), then model master clear to seal what you have done. Then decaling....then reseal with the model master? I am not sure?
I love your builds....I have been trying to re-read your old threads.....but some of the links are dead. If you could please take some time out of your busy day to make a general list....myself, and others here, I am pretty sure would greatly appreciate it. I am also aware that there are many various ways to achieve the same look... but I am fond of yours, cause I know how the general outcome will look like if I were to try them.
