  1. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Wrong distance from subject? If I want a smooth finishing, I usually use Mr. Surfacer 1500 spray cans. A slightly wet coat evens out nicely. I don't seem to be able to get the same result with Tamiya's fine surface primer...
  2. Model Kit Collection Show It Off!!!

    I think I've seen that one on Y! Auctions Japan exactly once...and it went for an ungodly amount of money. My favourite Club-M/Yellow Submarine kit has to be the 1/72 YF-19 (because it includes the full weapon load + fold booster).

    It really, really depends on the kit. Many regular non-anime model kits (and older anime kits) also have bad parts separation. Some resin kits have better parts separation than plastic kits, e.g. Volks' color resin kits. I personally think part preparation on resin kits takes more time than on plastic kits, but painting usually isn't that much more work (getting the paint to stay put on the other hand...).
  4. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    Just add lots of X20A thinner until the paint flows freely (like thin milk), but not too much. If the paint starts to look transparent you likely added too much thinner...
  5. Retro Gaming

    That video reminds me of how easy we have it in Europe with SCART cables and TVs. When I bought my second-hand PS1's (for 10 Euro) I got a RGB-SCART cable with them, and after hooking that up to my HDTV everything worked as intended...

    Maybe also clean the battery contacts? They look rather dark and oxidized.

    Finished Nausicaa with the Ohm some time back: And the Bertone Panther last week: Looks pretty decent for a 50 year old kit with a mostly scratchbuilt interior (for which I had exactly one reference drawing). Surprisingly, the decals were a) still usable, b) reacted really well to MicroSet/Sol, and c) had white that was opaque enough to mostly hide the green paint below them.
  8. PATLABOR

    I wish Kaiyodo would reissue their old 1/35 Patlabor vinyl kits (even though I already own most of them). They had the Brocken, TV Ingram 1-3, movie Ingrams, Helldiver, Zero, and Griffin. Most of those had better poses than their 1/24 Zero. Speaking of old 1/35 vinyl kits, B-Club also did several: Ingram, Economy (both versions in one box), SRX-70 (both proto and production versions in one box), and AV-0.

    That liquid mask is equally disastrous on flat surfaces: simply impossible to remove in one piece, with little bits staying behind every single time. It also dissolves in certain types of acrylic paints...
  10. MOSPEADA

    "conversion" could refer to the older 1/72 kits that had parts to build the Legioss in each of its three modes, or the kits are mislabeled and are actually supposed to be the 1/48 version (which would fit in with the variable Ride Armors that are also getting rereleased).
  11. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    Based on the renders I think I'll just wait until I'm skilled enough to properly finish my Club-M version...

    The Ohm base now has all of its (very small) acid lake. Painted it to look sufficiently unhealthy (using my experience with mixing acids in the lab). Also added copious amounts of Ohm blood and put the machine gun in place: Also trying to make something decent out of this old Eidai Bertone Panther car kit: I bought it about a decade ago, the kit was started and incomplete (didn't pay enough attention when buying it), soon realised the bodywork was more or less accurate but the interior absolutely not, tried modding it back then, failed, and so it ended up on the "started but not finished"-stack. Now I figure I should at least be able to build it as a decent looking curbside kit. Took care of the engine bay (did I mention there's a wind-up engine in there?), now working on the interior.
  13. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Base for the Ohm moving forwards: I'm using some layers of Vallejo water texture painted with Tamiya clear paints for the acid lake bit, but the stuff needs to dry a day or so between layers.

    Speaking of old Kaiyodo resin kits, I completed this last week:
