Hello again good folks ^^
Last week I posted some photos of Wage’s Sweet Shop. I’m happy to say that the response of that set of photos both here in this blog and outside are great. The whole idea of the photoshoot was already in my head for a long time, but I need to find the photo props (and buy more Uglydolls) that are perfect to create the scene.
Once I gather all the materials, the project started. It took a whole day to create the scene but it sure was fun ^^. I also took some photos of the WIP, so I’ll let the pictures do more of the talking :D
New update :D
Some parts in my RX-78 need to be painted in a two tone colors. They are the bazooka and knee parts. In order to pull it off, some more masking are needed. Here are the before and after pictures of those parts:

So airbrush is not a must, but it certainly could achieve results that no other could achieve, such as apply shading, spraying mixed colors, writing, etc.
I have gather up the materials needed to finally write an airbrush tutorial. I’m gonna divide the explanation about compressor and airbrush to make the post not too long and better organized :D
I’ve just finished on the paint chipping process in my tank. During my work, I’ve been able to make some documentation of the chipping method that I use.
To begin my explanation, we have to understand what chipping is. Chipping is a method to replicate the effect of a chipped paint.

My first tutorial..well, not actually a tutorial, it is more of an explanation about paints. Since it is my first time so I figure out why not writing something simple :D
So, there are basically three types of paint that is usually used in scale modeling. Their differences lies on the base material of the paint. There is the lacquer based, enamel based, and acrylic based paint.
