Some old tricks, some new!
Posted by rabbiteatsnake on Sunday, November 19, 2006 6:44 AM

 Recently while repositioning some figures, I mixed up some styrene scraps with liquid

cement. If you have the time for the stuff to dry, this is still a fabulous medium to build up

small fabs.

Years ago I built a 1/6th scale limo, for the film "Strage days", my partner told me, he used

acrylic gesso in a hypo, for the rivets on the Hariers, built for the climax of "True lies".

Well a little impractical, those things were at least 1/8th, at the smallest.  So hoping to

salvage a 1/35th Italeri "38 T", made bald by vigorous modifications: Ahem. I took some

fine line tape, added tics at the rivet spacing.  Next I laid it ajacent to the seams, and

with a 5/0 pointer dabbed artists gesso next to the tics.  Voila no more "male panzer

baldness".  If you screw up let dry and pop it off with a blade.

The devil is in the details...and somtimes he's in my sock drawer. On the bench. Airfix 1/24 bf109E scratch conv to 109 G14AS MPC1/24 ju87B conv to 87G Rev 1/48 B17G toF Trump 1/32 f4u-1D and staying a1D Scratch 1/16 TigerII.
