Breni Hi, that metal finish is beautiful and I'm very keen to try it on my p47. I'd love to know your method for applying the foil. Do you precut the individual panels and how is it stuck to the plastic? Does the model need to be treated with anything before and after the foil?
17. November at 17:58:44
Sybar Hi sorry for the delay.
I didn't treat the plastic and I used micro scale industries metal foil adhesive. It looks like pva but not sure what it is but it works. I used cheap foil as it tends to be thinner and that's a good thing. I tend to do each panel separately or two to three in an area just to enable some variation. I cut the foil roughly to required size with a new blade on a piece of glass, cutting mats are too soft. I then apply the glue to the foil, leave it to dry a little (as per the instructions) then place it on the model. Gently smoothing from the centre of the panel to the edges and use a cocktail stick to define the panel edges. Finally using the nice sharp blade I run along the panel lines to remove the excess.
I would then choose a different area of the model to do the next set of panels giving each area more time to fully cure. Doing different areas allows for variation, foil has a grain and you can rotate the foil to give contrast also each side of the foil is very different so mix it up a bit and see what you like. You can also darken the foil by boiling some with egg shells in a pan of water ( wouldn't recommend using your best pots for this) this can give nice engine metal look.
Once you have the glue it's quite cheap but a little time consuming, although I found it relaxing.
Oh you can paint over the foil too, for anti glare etc and it chips very easy for real effects.
Have fun

Patrick Hagelstein Simply amazing!!!

Breni @Sybar thanks for replying with very detailed method, I might just have to try that.

Stephan H. Nice Work! When I saw the gallery picture I thought these are the bandai kits, but obviously not. Interesting to see that 144th AT-ATs are done by other companies as well. Weathering is excellent. I personally would have use only one AT-ST in the given space but that is up to the artist :)

Treehugger I'll watch this. :) So I guess, the hull part is already made and painted here then?
26. May at 07:23:35
Sybar It's a multi colour kit and the hull comes in red and black as seen in pic. Although as can be seen in next photos I've been so keen to get lights working I've forgotten to paint before wiring it in doh!

Treehugger Very nice! I don't ever recall having seen a Sabre with an open cockpit. Looks especially great on that jet I think. :) I guess this reminds me of that movie with that old guy flying a jet in an age where petrol is scarce.

Nathan Dempsey This is definitely a challenging build. Nice work! I'll get around to my Gavia kit one day...
28. March at 01:20:27
Sybar Thanks not sure how to fix photos? Taken on iPhone and it always shows them the right way up. Any advise on how to correct them?
28. March at 10:00:23
Nathan Dempsey I've had no luck uploading photos from my Galaxy either. I have to use my laptop to get them to come out right.

gorbygould The photo orientation has been a problem for years. Tim said about a year ago, that a rotation tool would be easy to implement, but I couldn't find it the last time I uploaded photos.
28. March at 12:17:29
Sybar Cheers guys will look to see any app we have on phones can help.
Despite a bit of a fight with the kit in parts I enjoyed this a lot first one after a few years break from kits
28. March at 16:39:01
Sybar Managed to correct rotation issues via PS Express app but very faffy process getting them back in library will have to try correcting first / work out which way is up on iPhone ????
