    Recently I decided to get into photography of my models, but I have no idea what material to use as the backdrop, does anyone have any recommendations?

    You can also try to use the runners cut at certain area and glued together with pla plates to create like those destroyed colony debris for dioramas

    Oh, sorry about that. the thinner i used is the mr colour leveling thinner, and i used cotton bud

    • No worries 😉

      This is the bottle with the yellow label and the blue writing, right?
      If so, this is the cellulose based thinning agent, in other words, the lacquer based thinner.
      This is the wrong thinning agent. If not careful, it might melt the plastic if not careful. You where lucky so far….

    Okay i have a bit of an issue here, i was test running the panel line accent marker on the panel lines of my kit, but thing is, every time i use the mr hobby thinner to rub off the excess ink, it keeps erasing off the panel lines. Am i using the wrong thinner or something?

    • As long as it isn’t melting your plastic (lacquer thinner) you should be fine regarding the thinning agent.
      To be honest I need some more information.

      -What color has the label of the Mr. Hobby thinning agent. Don’t you know what you bought????

      -How do you remove the excess? A q-tip/cotton bud, cotton ball, tissue, moist paintbrush?

      My guess is…[Read more]

    Recently i started on a custom kit project, though there are two problems i face: What is the recommended thickness of a pla-plate if i were to use it for adding highlights to my kit and how do i do the scribing of the hexagon panel lines that usually are done in models showcased in gunpla magazines

    • As for the thickness, it depends on how thick you want the raised detail to be. Just keep in mind that the thicker the pla-plate is, the less easy it’ll conform to curved surfaces.

      On scribing panel lines, in what shape or form, it would take me ages to type down the instructions. I suggest going to YouTube and search for Justinius Builds. He…[Read more]

    i had really hoped bandai would release a Mg of the three extreme gundam rather than just stopping at a single extreme gundam Hg

    Hi, just two questions here regarding the PG Banshee Norn
    1. If i want to preserve the shine of the plated gold parts from degrading due to direct/indirect sunlight, do i spray on gloss topcoat over it or leave it as it is
    2. How do i resolve the weight distribution issue of the shield without using any cement and able to pose it like shown on the…[Read more]

    • Hi there,
      1 I have got a 1/100 HG Wing Gundam from I believe 2001. It had “mechie” plated gold parts and those are as pristine as the day they came out of the box. So you don’t need to put anything on it. There is however a product from Model Master which is designed for putting over metalizers without ruining the sheen, which most clear coats…[Read more]

    • 1: as Teetee said, the way that Bandai painted the gold parts they will survive fine as is. Although if you want to protect it from scratches then a gloss coat will be fine.

      2: There aren’t really any “fixes” for the shield, so I can only really offer posing advise sorry.
      For my Banshee I made sure that the shield peg is as close to the centre of…[Read more]

    Recently I just started building my hi nu ver ka. But problem is that the kit uses water slide decals. I do know that the water decals are already pre cut but do I just peel the decal off and put in water or am supposed to cut along the pre cut line bef sliding the thing into water

    • You need to cut the decal from the sheet. You can do this by either using a knife or a pair of scissors. There is no need to cut them along the pre-cut line, or else there would be no need for the pre-cut….
      If you leave some excess paper next to the decal when you cut it, you can use this in your advantage to be holding the paper with a set of…[Read more]
