A very enjoyable build, that I won off EBay. I really like the multi-kit sets. The details of the AMT snapfast kits are surprisingly nice, with lots of detail and raised panels.
I'm wondering how to paint the embossed lettering on the base, any ideas?
12. January, 07:13
Torsten Wendt
I remember to build this kit in the past, it was funny. Like to see you have build it yet. Maybe you can use a Mascot around the lettering and try a kind of drybrushing
13. January, 13:33
JD
That was my first thought too Torsten, using liquid mask around the letters and dry brushing.. I saw another guy doing a dabbing technique like how they used to apply ink to the type set in old printing presses.. both worth a try.
13. January, 23:02
Torsten Wendt
Yes, the second one sounds interesting, too. Like to see which technique you use
14. January, 05:32
JD
Made some progress.. I'm happy with the results so far, although I feel a disturbance in the Force.. as if my masking job is about to betray me, and go horribly wrong...
17. January, 03:38

I'm looking forward to see the pink zone without masking :)

THX, looking good :)
18. January, 05:38
JD
As I suspected, the eyes gave me trouble. Paint was too thick, causing tiny ridges around the edges after the tape was removed. Not sure if I can live with it or not. I may redo them. Next after some dry brushing, there are additional racing stripes and battle damage I have yet to figure out.

A 31 year old vintage kit, crude by today's standards. So much sanding, so much filler, so many imperfections. It feels like I'm actually carving the ships myself out of soap or something. A real challenge. I hope I can make them look decent.

Yeah, those old (and heck, even new) AMT kits are made with such brittle and ill-fitting plastic. I bought the F-104 Starfighter "Tomorrow is Yesterday" Album | Album by awkwards (1:48) kit primarily for the jet because I love that plane. You'll see that I didn't put enormous care into the fit and finish of the Enterprise in that one, so I'm looking forward to seeing how yours turns out!

Hi Chaz, It seems that the clear is the same as the blue, not sure why the color difference, maybe it's formulated to not stick to the blue, but maybe it's a visual reminder to keep track of the 2 parts. I think the real reason the two don't stick together is the temperature differential between the 1st and 2nd mold. Another curious thing is the more you knead it, tiny bubbles are introduced that can mess up casting details unless it's very hot when you use it, then using a tool to force it down into the part. For flat, or 1sided parts, I used a piece of glass to push the part into the blue stuff to make a 1 part mold. It takes awhile to cool down, so I have a bowl of cold water nearby. It's lots of trial and error, but easily repeatable. :)
29. July 2020, 18:02
Chaz Gordon
I found the blue stuff easiest to get a good 1 part mold if first I force it into a square frame of Lego, on a ceramic tile. then I re-heated the block out of the lego mold, set the parts inside the leo frame, and push the blue stuff block down into the frame. as the block is already smooth, I got a perfect flat mold without bubbles.

I did discover that it cuts well with a sharp blade when cold, so getting a 2 piece mold is easier.

PS do not put the lego in the boiling water, it melts at a surprisingly low temperature.
29. July 2020, 22:53
JD
I'd like to see pics of your trials, what will you use to cast with?
As far as casting material, I've tried Milliput, JB weld 2 part epoxies, and 5 min epoxy which is bubble city.
The clay-like epoxies are quite rigid, and you have to squeeze the molds together, but too much and things get distorted. I want to try injecting resin into a 2 part mold next. Oh yeah and btw, don't use Lego knockoffs.. can't get em' apart!
29. July 2020, 23:45
Chaz Gordon
I experimented with araldite rapid and standard and jb weld steel best results were araldite standard, rock hard in 24 hours and no bubbles. It will also self level as it's workable for 90 minutes. Araldite rapid is ok, but gets bendy from body heat when trying to work it after it's cured. Could be handy in some applications. Jb weld was like rubber for a week, then hard as steel, but lots of bubbles. It's also the worst for levelling.

There are "chain bases" put out by Kotobukiya that look absolutely stunning when done up nicely. You can link different sets of them together and get a cool "Gundam Hangar" look.

LOL I just took a few pics this weekend of a Bulldog that sits outside a VFW post about 30 miles from me. You're welcome to them. I got good side & front pics, one of the turret mantle, and I think one of both the back and front fenders. It had just got a new paint job. I wandered out back of the post, and yea, I found a few old soldiers drinkin' and a smokin' at 9am on a Sunday morn... bless their hearts. One vet was just cracking open a fresh, cold can of Busch - i think i threw up a little in my mouth.

None could answer any question about the Bulldog though, only that they had just painted it. Good on you for tackling a Tamiya classic!

The one that started it all.. Back in 2017 the farthest thing from my mind was building models, when I came across this kit in a 2nd hand store, along with a set of Warhammer space marines. I had only some ideas on how to proceed. I wasn't on YouTube much, and really had no interest in models until I came across my hero Adam Savage on his channel. When I saw him build the cosmonaut model, I was hooked. You can see the humble beginnings of my workspace, with few paints and tools.. :D

What materials are you using for the base? I have a half dozen tiny scale AMT kits mostly the different flavors of the Enterprise. I have poked around craft stores looking for something not too big or small that I can make bases. I have looked at different kinds of styrofoam and plastic balls, cutting them in half to make a base but nothing really has hit the spot. So when I see posts like this, I pounce with questions.
4. September 2020, 22:01
JD
Hi Robbie, the mind wanders doesn't it? This base came out of the Enterprise Space Seed edition. Have you considered making a cast of a base you already have?
Anyway, I'm going for a planetary effect here, still in the experimental stages. I posted this as a reference for my mate Gary on his amazing build. He's already on top of it: qaStaH nuq jay’ | Album by Knucklehead Labs (1:350)
I like the idea of using a lighted base painted with transparent paint to simulate a planet below. A dome style light fixture from the home store seems ideal. Turns your finished model into a lamp!

Thank you everyone. I'm glad it's over. It took me more than 2 months, including all the down time and bashing my head against the wall trying to figure out how to make it happen. I'm a little disappointed that I could not get a good shot of the flux capacitor with the glowing effects, but my camera can't handle the low light conditions. I think I need to step away from the workbench for awhile, and take a break, or do something easier. I need to improve my work area, build a better spray booth, and a proper photo booth with a nice camera. Then I want to work on dioramas and bases, and eventually electronics, and somewhere in there finish Anakin's Podracer. :D

How I decant rattlecan paints. I have since learned that you DO NOT use plastic lids. Shortly after this, the chrome one exploded because the propellant will expand, eat through the lid, and become a paint bomb.
Glass jars with metal lids only. Also make sure you use the right thinner. In this example, I have found that some of the Rustoleum metallics prefer mineral spirits over lacquer thinner.

Rattle cans are pigment, solvent and propellant. You obviously need to let the propellant out completely before sealing. Outdoors preferably.

I'm not a huge Gundam fan, but for 7 dollars at Hobby Lobby, I couldn't pass it up.
Bandai kits are so much fun and low stress, the next thing I knew 5 hours had passed! :D I'll return to finish painting and create some sort of base later on. :)

I just finished that one for my son this afternoon. It was my first attempt to get him into the hobby, but it didn't work. I think his mother's level of patience wore off on him. :) I do love how Bandai kits go together. So smooth.

One of my first attempts at modeling and airbrushing. Gotta start somewhere...
17. December 2019, 02:26

I learned to airbrush before I learned how to use putty to fill in seam lines...kinda backwards

Thanks for the encouragement James C. I admire your skills..

This is my 3rd model since I returned to the hobby in 2017, and my first tank ever. I never finished it because at the time, I didn't know enough to take it any further. I actually scratch built a toy tank out of wood to practice airbrushing on because I was scared to learn on a real model! (It has a place of honor in my collection) Later I bought toy robots from the dollar store to learn on which helped me gain experience :D

maybe because in order to do that, there has to be a model associated to the album... and currently there is none ;)
2. July 2020, 08:05
Chaz Gordon
Correct, There is no Project associated and hence no Kit link, It's just some guys chatting about shop finds.

Wilky, would that it were so simple, the "Dealers" are paying stall holders who trawl through the public sellers before the general public are allowed in, It's a general bone of contention about the format, a lot of public sellers won't sell to them, but so many do that it's ruined the fun of car boot sales.

Yeah, the money hungry always spoil it for us genuine enthusiasts

Okay, I guess I presumed there was an associated project since the photos in the album are of a model kit and this thread's first few posts are related to the specific kit. That's one downside to filtered Newsfeed views.

So I would need to create a new project with this kit if I want it to be categorized and searchable. My Time machine build too is only viewable when both sci-fi and movies, or vehicles, filters are checked, because it's just another album getting lost in the feed... :S

Would be nice if a photo album could be linked to a topic, say reference photos being shared and there is no "project" created to link them to. Then when viewing the topic you'd see non-project albums related to that topic. Just an idea.
