With the new airbrush I decided to revisit the Goliath. The originally planned Digital Camo was a bust. The stencils bled too much. But I have to say, I've got more done and used so much less paint in just an hour with this shittin' little $20 airbrush than I have in all the months I've been […]

After my debacle with the airbrush I "ordered" from Amazon, they sent me a 100foot LED Light Strip and a Dumpster Fire piggy bank. WTF??? Anyhow, I kept the LED lights, got them around my workshop. Really cool when they get going with the music. So, I decided that I was going to find an […]

Just needs a couple of touchups where I have fingerprints from gluing myself to the model while attaching the cab and chassis. I had quite a bit of fun printing, painting and assembling her. https://gallery.designcreations.us/thumbnails.php?album=28

I had to redesign the slide spring and follower though. The original was just too flimsy and weak. It […]

I have the first layer of stencils on, at least on the main body. We'll how these work out. I may need to use a thicker, sticker material. And the clear is a bit of a bitch to see, lol Hrmm, looking at the larger "blown up" image, I may need to use another material any how. I might have a […]
Just a bit of touch-up here and there, let it dry and I should be able to apply the first layer of stencils. I think I do need to find a good primer. Not sure if it's that I'm handling it a bit too soon or the Army Painter paint isn't adhering the best without a primer.
I've got my base coat down. I'm going to do a traditional color camo but in a digital. I'm also going to try a different technique. Layering sticky stencils for the colors. Base coat of matte black, add some stencils then a coat of brown, rinse repeat for green. I'll see how this works and see if I […]
