    Eureka moments...

    Post  Dottore on Sun Feb 03, 2013 11:53 am

    Got inspired form a similar posting from another modeller on fb...

    What is that discovery that has really made a difference to your model building/painting?

    Personally I think i had 2 major eureka moments...

    The sealing of paintwork with varnish prior to weathering.

    Gator glue for photo etch and other small parts that need precise placement....

    Maybe my next eureka moment will be soldering Twisted Evil hopefully soon!

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Mela in my case...since the photoetch parts are so minute...I airbrush , varnish and weather the photoetch parts whilst they are still attached on the photoetch sheet...that way I found it much easier.
    Dott tell me more about this gator glue... Question Question
    Secondly I find it easier to finish different components....complete including rigging and once they are all finished....I commence to assemble the model...again much easier...for weathering...

    My Major Eureka moment & I think I can attest my brothers' Joseph & Philip opinions re this, was when I joined SSM in March 1986 prior to that year's SSM Expo at Grand Hotel Excelsior cheers

    I was in the DARK Sad

    All of a sudden I then saw the LIGHT cheers Twisted Evil

    My Eureka is that I thank PBS that they choose to make 2 days of dedicated to Eurovision, instead of wasting my time hearing lullabies and doctors singing sh@@@y songs I spent two evening on constructing and sculpting with another eureka mixing Magic Sculpt with Duro ... thank you Malta!
