    Started with washing the runners and hanging them to dry, then onto making my sanding sticks. πŸ™‚ Finished test building the body unit and that’s all for today. πŸ™‚

    I have a question though: Would I get bumped up to Intermediate if I scribe additional panel lines on my kit? Thank you for the response! πŸ™‚

    • It depends how much you do. Be aware that the Beginners Category does have a pretty low standard, so the more you do, the more risk you have of being bumped up. I personally think you should be fine, though.

    • I agree, it depends on how much you do. This level is the out of the box group. So if you do a few i would say you are good, but if you do a bunch then you may get moved up.

      • Thanks for the reply guys, I’m pretty much leaning on the out of the box build plus a few experimentations such as the panel wash and few hand paints as this is my 2nd MG. Just can’t help but think when I see my scriber, haha. πŸ˜›

    • I disagree, it depends on how well you scribe them. If they come out all squiggly then you’ll probably still be in beginners. Still, I think you should do your best!

      • Thanks for the insight, maybe I’ll practice scribing on other kits before I do it on this one. Do your best as well. πŸ™‚

        • Hmmmm … Well this complicated story of change category depending on the change in Kit Will it be allowed to make a Top Coat in kit without being moved from category?

    • Your sanding sticks.. now why I had never had that idea. Thanks for showing it here! Now I can remove nub marks more effectively. πŸ™‚
