Question mates: has anyone fabricated wheel flares for a model before? Can a 1/24 auto guy help me out here?

Bobby Thumbs

I too think that you came close to your inspirational pics. Nice color variation on the fence and natural looking ground work.
25 September, 07:38
Bobby Thumbs
Thank you everyone for the feedback. Added paper flowers and weeds today - if everyone thinks its good I'm calling it done.

@Michael Kohl - yes the fence - in hindsight I should have gone more deck tan or ashy grey working up to a brown black but instead I used the afrikacorp uniform shades to make my fence... haha afrikacorp wooden fence - it works I guess.

Now to the next problem - to horse or not to horse? only kits I can find available is the old trusty Tamiya (but is a mule not a horse)

You say it's ok but i think it turned out very well!
You,ve done a good job on the vegitation.
But i'm not sure but the linked project says it's done but it look like there will follow something more...😄

Bobby Thumbs
thank you for your kind words - the flowers came out OK but real messy to make, there were different coloured flowers in the packet but after doing the yellow ones I was over it. Maybe I will have another go at flowers down the road somewhere (or just make life easier by getting those ready made strips of flowers).

LOL theres nothing to follow bro I'm done.

Wow, the water coming from the jug looks great 👍
Did you use acrylic products for said water?
15 March, 12:50
Bobby Thumbs
Thanks for the love everyone. @WhiteGlint - yea man I was surprised at how well the water stream turned out too. I used AK 8008 for the stream - I spread some out on a piece of glass and scraped it off when it was dry. I then cut the blob into a strip, glued it to the jug and used AK 8002 to make it more rounded as well as giving it some shape - it worked a treat but Im sure theres other water products that do the same. I think theres a Vallejo set out there as well thats probably the same shit in a different bottle.

for the fact that you had a few problems with the dio, it has become really great!
I really like the idea of this scene, would fit wonderfully into a movie 😁

Bobby Thumbs
Thank you Simon. The crackle came up well the 2nd try around. I visited a local art supply store on a whim. Got a crackle medium made by Jo Sonja. That worked really well as you can see in the pics (only minor complaint I have is that it drys glossy so I had to dull it down a bit afterwards). I don't know what happened with the AK crackle texture - I tried all different amounts and thickness on a piece of card and nothing seemed to work. Either the bottle I got was old and lost its crackle or AK sells snake oil - I don't know.

I'm going to take a break from dio projects for a bit. Making vehicles, figures and concepting a dio can get a bit out of hand financially. I have been inspired by Mathias Decommerce's Ardenne forest dio so I may just play around with making a forest. I have also found Mandalorian and Bo Katan 1/24 figures I might have a go at (just for a change).

Hey Thomas - just did some googling of Peddinghaus - some complaints of decal being too glossy and hard to put on even with a decal solution - have you had any experience with peddinghaus decals?
17 December 2021, 00:17
Thomas Espe
Hi. No, sorry, I haven't actually used peddinghaus myself, I just got curious if there were some decals for tattoos in 1/35 and found those.

TBH I butchered the MasterBox figure. My eyes ain't that great and the magnification thing I use is shitful. I was struggling with trying to layer the paint - this was before I found out about paint retarder. I reckon my German sex dolls are better (and also a smaller scale 1:35).
