Christopher Mullins
I need a little help, I need some good brushes that dont cost a lot, the Revell brushes are not very good, I see some from Ammo Mig, Tamiya, Winsor and Newton, Springer, and Vallejo, I dont really know what is worth buying though, or maybe I should go to an art supply store and buy a couple of really good ones or something. Anyone have any idea and Thank you?
14. November at 10:34:55 Share
Treehugger I just want to add that you can buy some brush conditioning goo, in a small bottle which might help keeping the brushes intact over time.

The one product I have is the small bottle of liquid Tamiya 87181 "Brush conditioning fluid". One is supposed to dip the tip in the liquid after cleaning it first, before storing the brush. Then, one would clean the tip in water again, before use the next time.

Here is a randomly selected review of the product off youtube:

Martin Oostrom Brushes can be critical for your finished build, frayed brushes or lost hairs are very bad for the result. Don't go cheap, buy good ones. Go to an art supply store and buy the right brushes. Keep your brushes for acrylics separate from the ones used for enamels, or mark them visibly. Do not use a brush for enamels with acrylics and vice versa.
14. November at 11:48:57
Treehugger I think it is also a good idea to keep some brushes in stock, unused. Because then you have them ready when you need it.

I had to do some touch up painting by hand, on some thin white stripes on a submarine model, and because the lines were so short and thin, before airbrushing on the white, adding the masking tape was problematic/difficult, so I had to clean up the lines with a tiny tiny brand new brush. And it worked. :)
14. November at 11:52:34
Hans Robben What Martin said: don't skimp on this and keep them seperate. I have brushes from Kolibri with 2 different colored handles: synthetic in blue (I use them for acrylics) and rotmarder in red (for enamels). They also have a nice thick triangular grip. Go to an arts store and try a few to see what fits you best.

Olivier Here are the Fotos. I see them a little out of focus. Or do I need new glasses ?
10. November at 12:22:48
Christopher Mullins NO they are out of focus, problem with the lighting, mainly being that there is no light today, once I get the decals on today or tomorrow I will try again to make some new pictures and post them.

Christopher Mullins Been wanting to build this for awhile. This is one of my favorite jet fighters, the lines just look so sleek cool, I think it looks better than the US fighters, and I like these Russian camo schemes too. Hopefully I can get most of it finished before I have to go back to work next week.
8. November at 09:21:19
Christopher Mullins Well, the problem with buying stuff on Ebay, I bought this model some years ago, maybe 3 or so, never noticed the photo etched wasn't in the box. Maybe Eduard has replacements, gonna have to search around I guess and not going to have it finished this year probably

Christopher Mullins Got the camo painted on now, it hurts to sit so long and paint these stripes actually, maybe I shouldnt try to do it all in one sitting. Think it looks pretty good though, just have to do some touch up and start putting the rest of the parts on, mainly tools and exaust

Christopher Mullins Got this yesterday and already started on it. Was surprised I found one of these still, and think it looks pretty good for the age of the kit.
4. July at 08:43:04
Christopher Mullins This is coming along pretty fast, even though it only has a half engine, the underneath still looks descent I think. the rest seems to fit together OK, I dont like how they do some of the seams though, it was the same with the Italeri HEMMT, weird seams. The engine looks like it is a bit crooked too.
5. July at 17:31:44
Christopher Mullins A couple of problems here, it should have to Sincgars antennas and a Brush guard. It seems like those parts are made by a couple of companies if I can just get them here. Or maybe revell could send me an extra antenae.

Christopher Mullins Gonna do some kit bashing here to get what i need to make one, anyone need the leftovers?

Christopher Mullins Have done a lot of work on this one, including a small review of the kit because its a newer kit. Give hopefully interested people an idea of the kit. The camo scheme is pretty complicated, 4 colors on top, my paint job wont be exactly like that on the instructions but close enough I think. It is a decent kit, but going to need some filling and sanding I think.
3. November at 10:59:17
Christopher Mullins I have done up to the third topside color, and going to do the Chocolat, or as close as I can get with this and the D 520 soon.

Christopher Mullins Here is a T 26 that I started 3 years ago, problems with the tracks that came with it (they were way to big and didn't fit at all) led to me buying another cheap T 26 that had actaully had much better track in it, and they fit, and I could even resell the T 26 that I used without track. Then it sit on a shelf for about a year and I finally put the decals on it today, all three of them. Dont know why it took so long for me to do that, just forgot I guess. I like this one a lot better than the other T 26 I have with the two turrets.

Christopher Mullins Another light project. It is going together well, so far a found a little flash but no other problems. I will be painting it Panzerdunklegrau with Dunklebraun like some vehicles were at the beginning of the war, like I painted my Panzer IV basically.
27. April at 16:52:31
Carlos Cisneros That's a great kit for a quick simple project.
27. April at 17:16:36
Christopher Mullins I am surprised at the detail on the underside, almost messed up the wheels though, the A and B. Not going to put the protective cover on the back, I think that was more for vehicles in North Africa. This will be an early war version, East Front. I saw a picture of a 222 on a website that was from the early war and it was camouflaged. Think it was panzerworld.com. They said it was tank grey and a dark brown, but the picture was black and white, dont know, but Ill just do this like I think looks OK. Not going to add the figures though because I suck at painting figures.
1. May at 05:36:31
Carlos Cisneros Lol. Worst case, you can use the kit figure to practice and hopefully improve your skills there.
1. May at 20:00:00
Christopher Mullins Usually I just sell the figures on E bay, usually get about 3 or 4 Euros for em.
4. May at 06:21:01
Christopher Mullins This is coming along fine I think, Been procrastinating on cutting out the mesh though. I painted tho bottom before I put on the wheels, I will be painting the top soon, when I get the turret hatches on. I want to make the hatch able to open and not just static though, shouldn't be too hard I think.
9. June at 09:38:18
Christopher Mullins Finally went farther with this one, go the grenade cages on the turret hatches and the Panzer grey on it, gonna have to go back over the nets and poke the holes back out where the paint closed it up, probably get the brown on it today and then the details this week.

Munkyslut That's a great link Chris! Interesting read, I've tuned a few 472's in my time & even a 500.
If you study that pic closely you'll see the blue painted dome shaped casting bolted to the top left side of the block. That's the fuel pump, the brass assembly to the left of it is the fuel filter.
Later blocks had the pump mounted much lower down the block, driving straight of the camshaft.
18. August at 10:04:55
Christopher Mullins Those driving out of the camshaft are what Im used to I guess, how it was on most of the cars Ive owned with V8, my 79 Chevy with a 350 was the first engine I took a part after it threw a rod. the older engines Im not so familiar with though.
22. August at 08:11:47
Christopher Mullins Well, finally an update, been busy with work and the last week with the flu so haven't accomplished all that much. Interior is mostly done though, except the Dashboard, was trying to figure out what some of the stuff was on there because on the interior pictures I found the piece in the upper left is a gauge but on the model it looks completely different. I also got most of the Chrome on the body, but I have to work on the Windshield because it was pretty badly scratched, got the big scratches sanded off it now, just got to polish it up now.
15. September at 10:47:01
Christopher Mullins Got pretty far on the Caddy now, there are some adjustments that have to be made in the engine compartment to straiten some stuff up, the hood hinges, thats about it except for the one sore spot, the windshield, its terrible, it was so scratched up so I decided to try to fix it and then I broke it in half, so I guess the dude driving my Caddy hit a Bird? But the frame doesn't look all that good either, and I am having a really tough time trying to get any kind of shine out of the plastic. I guess it just the type of plastic that is harder to work with, maybe it has to do with the age of the plastic, Im not sure. Wish I could get a new windshield and frame for it , would be the best solution.
14. October at 14:11:30
Munkyslut Have you thought about dipping the clear plastic glass in to Future floor polish?
It's a great way to improve stained or scratched clear parts.
14. October at 14:45:24
Christopher Mullins so, what do they have in Germany that is like future? Gonna have to ask around I guess
19. October at 09:19:35
Munkyslut It's available all over eBay in Europe Christopher, you should be able to buy it easily I'd have thought?
19. October at 10:17:19
Christopher Mullins well, i see it on Amazon, and I think they have it my Mueller, just gotta go see tomorrow.

Christopher Mullins Ok, so the parts that I messed up on are fixed, and I've been thinking about what I want to do in the interior, I have a couple of olive colors with grey that I think would look good inside. I think Fern Green would be good.
18. August at 09:48:01
Munkyslut How do you paint your interiors Chris? Spray or brush? Acrylics or enamel?
18. August at 10:06:22
Tim Heimer Christopher I know what you mean, I'm on a fixed income and you see some of the work here and wish you could get the things others have to complete yours's the way you would like. I mix my paints the best I can, make the parts that I can't and improvise where I can. We are here to show what our imagination can do. We are also here to help and be helped.
18. August at 15:20:40
Christopher Mullins Munky, I brush with Enamel. I always use enamel except for the exteriors, the Tamiya Acrylic spray is much better than the Revell Enamel Spray, they are the only ones I can get here, and they are both expensive, 8-10 Euros for 1 can. All of my military models I hand paint, except for aircraft with aluminum fuselage. The first car I did the, 66 Mustang, was with Revell Enamel spray and I was not at all satisfied with how the body turned out. The Tamiya spray colors look better, they are brighter and have a good gloss to them. Tim, I know exactly what you mean. I was thinking though, there is this aluminum or chrome foil they make for models, but Im not sure where to get it or how to put it on, and would like to use some on the caddy instead of the stickers if it doesn't cost too much. It might look better. I improvise a lot too, but sometimes i go over my budget and will buy an eduard set on occasion, or those boost parts if something is totally badly molded.
22. August at 08:04:59
Munkyslut Thanks for the tips Christopher!
22. August at 09:07:33
Christopher Mullins Havent made as much progress on the Hemi as on the Caddy, but got the Interior coming along now, Didn't go with the Fern Green, was much too bright, wanted the interior toned down a bit from the outside, so I went with Revell 361 which is Olive Green and I think it looks good, even though I think it looks more like a dark olive, but it may just be cause the grey is so light.
15. September at 10:51:33
Tim Heimer Chris, for chrome trim and small parts I use the 2mm chrome marker, Just shake it up and go, cost is about 10-13 Euros but will last a long time. The bare metal foil will cost about the same per sheet. It is delicate to work with and to some can be a challenge. On the aluminum, I cheat a lot with a silver Sharpie brand marker in certain areas but also use the Bare metal foil where I feel fit. I hope this helps.
15. September at 14:25:28
Christopher Mullins Busy at work so haven't had much time to work on models, but I got soemthing done in the last week, interior is done, except for a bit on the roof, and the windshields. Chassis is done and as soon as I get the windshields on it can go together. After that there is not much to do. It is the stock version of the car with the exception that I will be using the modified wheels cause I like how they look.

Christopher Mullins I built this in the 90s as a teen. That one didn't look that great. This one will be better. The instructions call for it to be painted gray, the studio model was brown, or well beige, but it did look quite gray or dark brown on screen. I struggled a bit deciding what color I would use. I like to try to paint things as they look on screen and not what the studio models look like but i decided using such dark colors on something like this would hide too much detail, even though it would also hide any damage that should occur with these big connection points to the tree. I probably spent about 2 hours yesterday going over the colors I have and what I think would look best. I finally decided on MM Armor Sand for the body, it is a darker beige, and I think it will turn out to look OK with that color. I just means I will have to do a bit more sanding and stuff to even out the seems, which some of the seams do not fit together well at all. ON the first part of the Docking ring I built there, was a hangover on one side that was probably a good 3 mm, and a lot of the parts are like that. This should also be the Lighted kit, but something like that I cant really afford. They cost between 250-300 Euros. This was a lighted kit that someone had taken the LED's out of and then Auctioned the rest, a normal DS9 cost about 90, I got it for 40, good deal I think.
31. December 2018 at 09:33:55
Christopher Mullins First we have pictures of the trees, for an older kit this has descent detail i think, but the connections to the tree are going to cause problems. I got quite far last night in one sitting, the whole docking ring and promenade is built, and one section of the docking ring has a base coat on it.
31. December 2018 at 09:35:16
Torsten Wendt I take a seat :)
31. December 2018 at 10:52:35
Christopher Mullins Promenade is looking good I think, but the shuttle doors I think I will repaint in a lighter gray. There are a lot of problem areas around the Docking arms though, that will take quite a bit of work to get ti right. I do wih I had the LEDS for is though, but the 350 Euros I couldn't afford.

Christopher Mullins Need more paint, been concentrating on the B wing for the time being while I order some more armor sand paint, but I did get the other three Docking Arms glued together, and most of the operations center and fusion reactor built and painted.

Christopher Mullins Found a new color from Humbrol, Dark Stone that looks good on it, its a bit darker than the other color but I think its better that way. I have god all the parts that were already painted repaint and and started on the other parts too. Now its coming along again and I found a good replacement for the no longer produced Armor Sand that I like to use on Russian Helicopters and other desert schmoes

Christopher Mullins So update, coming a long OK, but there are quite a few problem areas, like the spaces around all of the docking arms. Going to take quite a bit of filling and sanding to get it strait, and I think Ill need more paint too. The Promenade looks pretty good though, I have done the rough painting and now I have to do some better detail painting. The shuttle pads may be too dark though, may repaint them a lighter color, RAL 7001 or something like that.

Christopher Mullins It was difficult like I said because the decals were so old, I had to wet every decals, wipe it off, flip it over, wipe it again, flip it over again, and then when I put it on there was still some yellow but I got rid of most of it with a little more water and a cotton swab. I spent more time on the decals as on the assembly.
18. August at 08:47:57
Torsten Wendt All in all it looks good and the time you spend was it worth

Christopher Mullins My 5 year old saw the ship box and said he wants it to hang in his room. I built the sup assemblies before I took any pictures, there are not a lot of parts, but detail on the hull is pretty good. A couple of the parts didn't fit too well together anymore, it is an old kit. From 97 I think it is. I do like this class of ship though, I think they look pretty good.
29. November 2018 at 16:10:34
Christopher Mullins Now I have the top of the hull finished, and the nacelles, next step is to work on the bottom of the Hull. Using MM paints mostly, Duck Egg Blue and intermediate blue, plus Revell Yellow and Aluminum.
5. December 2018 at 12:10:41
Christopher Mullins Been taking my time here, got a little touch up to do and then put the decals on and its finished. Think it looks pretty good.
14. April at 12:29:16
Christopher Mullins The decals:very old, very yellow. It took a lot of time to get then on, more than 7 hours. The yellow does come off, but you have to dip the decal in water, wipe it off, wet it, flip the decal over, wipe it, wet it, and pray it is not in 5 or 6 pieces by the time you get it on. The only problems I really had with breakage were the stripes, the rest came off and went on without much trouble. Now the mistake I made. On the Nacelle pylons the re are Starfleet symbols but i got a couple of em upside down because i wasn't paying enough attention, not really that noticeable though, unless you look really close.
13. July at 17:55:16
Christopher Mullins So its finally finished, The decals were a pain, but I got most of the yellow off so they look OK, but you can tell they are old if you look close.

Christopher Mullins Its been awhile since I worked on this, but i started it again. Got one side of the track finished, unfortunately, there is a gap on the front. I can never get these single piece tracks exactly right, they look better than the rubber tracks, but the are much harder to get together, especially getting together with every piece strait and no gaps.

E-man super sweet paint job!!!! May I ask for some tips on how you went about such a great looking project?
23. September 2017 at 00:39:34
Christopher Mullins I paint by hand, I put the two coats of Revell Dunklegelb on it as I built it, to make sure to get all the parts inthe suspension and such, then after it is built, I use Revell 37 Ziegel-Rot for the Dark Red and Revell 361 Oliv-Grün for the Green. I use a number one and a number two brush that I get from the local hobby store. It also has skirts, which I forgot to take a picture of. I will look more toned down after weathering as well. The bad thing is though, that the instructions were unclear and the post on the hull, the bottom post that hold the skirts on, are glued in the wrong place, so they do not sit right, I am trying to figure out what to do about fixing that right now.
