nailed it Mike! 👍
Very cool result!
Nice finish! Looks like you rule the wastelands.
Thanks for the kind comments, guys!
Well done, nice build and idea 👍
I have tried painting a figure dark tone overall, then shooting a mid-tone horizontally, and then an azimuthal tone almost straight down, it came out well. Is that what you plan to do here, or are you using two tones?
Yeah most of the youtube painting channels on youtube suggest the same tri-tone lighting like you described here but since most of her parts will be painted in different colors, I went with two color. And I'm not using translucent enough paints so, the pre-lighting zenithal will disappear, I'm going to take photos of her in highlighted condition and use it as a reference during later stages.
Watching with interest ?
Count me in.
you've got my attention , wishing I could carry a assault rifle and sword shopping ..without getting in trouble
Thanks for interest gentlemen.
Mona A, I though the same, being able to hang around with a Japanese highschool girl uniform in a post-apocalyptic world with a KSG-12 shotgun and a Katana is pretty cool to be honest 🙂
Nice start 👍
I've thought about doing what you are doing here and using the highlighting as a reference for later painting. I might try that with the figure I currently have in progress. Yes, the three tone approach only works well when you're mostly working with one color.
Looking forward what's coming in the next time 🙂
This project is still in the planning stage, but I hope to build a diorama of a couple of wanderers meeting in the arctic wasteland
Aerosan? Fun build but a tad small for 1:35... Careful if you have figures, perhaps 1:48 might match better?
Bruce, thanks for the tip. The Aerosan does look a little small, and the figures I have are 1:35. I'll just have to see how all the components look together, and possibly bash together a slightly larger Aerosan body if need be.
I might be wrong, but I think the propeller would drag the vehicle backwards, if the reinforced edges of each blade are the leading edges when it spins. What do you reckon?
Nice catch, Bruce. The propeller mounted as shown on the box art and in the instructions would indeed pull the vehicle backwards. it can be flipped over and mounted so that it will propel the vehicle forward.
Do you reckon the steering rods should be inverted on one side too, Mike? If the main spindle rotates in the same direction, wouldn't that adjust the skiis to point together or apart, and not actually steer? I have no idea how the steering wheel / mechanism would actually actuate that spindle gizmo..... Just wondering if anyone knows?
No idea how the steering works, but I looked at vintage photos of this particular aerosan, and the steering rod connections to the bell crank on one side are the opposite of the other side.
Hmm, that what I figured, Mike, after I'd diligently followed the instructions. Ah well, I still enjoyed the challenges of this little kit. My first experience of photo-etched parts... Definitely recommended all the same.
Lovely Dio 👍 Great painting work with these tiny figures!
Thanks Roland for your kind words. Cheers Stefan
Not only that the figures are really well done, the dio has such an outstanding high grade on detail especially for that scale. Looks like a prize winner!!!
👍 👍 👍
excellent result Stefan!
Thanks Ralf and Spanjaard for your very kind comments. Cheers Stefan
