1/72 Bandai Porkins

Postby Atlast93 » February 11th, 2018, 3:19 am

Latest project I've had. It has been a week or so since I touched it. I love how much his pattern stands out from all the other X-wings. First W.I.P. post and definitely not the best, but I enjoy it just the same.

Very nice! Are you going to decal the astromech or something? I see it's unpainted so far.

Thanks! I can't stand micro decals so I'm going to try and mask it up and hand paint it.

I like using pastels and oils (thinned with Weber Odorless Turpenoid, or even more recently, water mixable oils)

They are very forgiving and can be cleaned off fairly easily if you mess up
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

Nice! I'll probably end up grabbing some of that stuff for this kit. I'd hate to ruin what i have right now

One note...depending on your surface and type of paint, the oils could wind up "staining" areas. IN some case this is actually a desired effect (like simulating dirt where water pools, or fuel spills etc)

Some people prefer gloss coating first before using oils. It prevents the staining aspect as it is easier to wipe off

ON the other hand, pastels have a harder time sticking to gloss coat. IN some case I have gloss coated, used oils, then matte coated and used pastels.

In other cases I don;t bother with any gloss or matte coats and instead just use the oils as a filter as well as weahtering

It's kind of a trial and error process. You might want to test techniques on a model you don;t care about first or on some extra scrap parts (like maybe the unused landing gear or even the smaller 1/144 one)
