Cool vid. His reminiscing of the Star Wars model builds is intresting. So that where "greeble" came from Huh?

Steve

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

Guys... I just watched the next video of his that came up. It is even better than the first one I posted. In this one he builds up a garage kit, showing his process in dealing with them. At the same time, he instructs a newbie.

I learned a ton. Steve 5, you are dead on for subscribing to his videos. Clearly, he knows his stuff, and he is geared towards not only effect, but throughput. I found it interesting that he works with mostly lacquer for the base colors, and then he uses oils for effect. Also interesting is what he said about airbrushes. He said all the guys at ILM use single action. I was surprised by that. It is entertaining to watch his seemingly haphazard techniques. He uses no particle masks, no booth, no exhaust fans, no gloves. By the end of the videos his hands are black with paint Lol.

Steve, I thought he looked familiar. Thanks for pointing that out!

I am Lol about the 6 year old excitement because he did that at the end of this build. The man enjoys his work!

I agree about the workshop!

Thanks about the badge. I didn’t make it, but I guess I can say that I earned it.Yes

Here is another fun one, a robot kit-bash. Lacquer base coat, acrylic wash, and just once he used a respirator.  Lol.

Did anyone notice he wasn’t using a straightedge to cut?  I get snaky lines and damaged fingertips when I try that!  His positive upbeat attitude is very inspiring.

Modeling should be fun.  If it’s all doom and gloom criticizing and rivet counting, what is the point?  Now don’t you want to go and make something?
