[QUOTE=TicTac;35144483]I am trying to find a painting tutorial for this. [img]http://ronpenndorf.com/images/tmyaz.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] Remember, if you really wanted to, you could take the easy way out and paint it in this livery: [t]http://www.warchapter.com/images/Zero%20Zeke%20airborne.jpg[/t] Historically inaccurate, but not unrealistic.
[QUOTE=Teh Zip File;35144712]You could use masking tape or something like blu-tack.[/QUOTE] Blu-tack is the bomb man, if you use that it will make it look like there's some over spray going on. Which is a bit more realistic then those mega sharp lines
[QUOTE=The Rifleman;35143860]So i have a really amateur question here, how do you get paintjobs onto planes? Like the curvy greens and stuff on the wings, body and tail. Do i use tape or what? I dont think i can draw perfect curves with a brush.[/QUOTE] I just painted "normally". Remember to paint the lighter colour first so that when you do the darker one it wont create an obvious overlap.
Awww yeah: [t]http://i.imgur.com/bCG9U.jpg[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/qebrp.jpg[/t]

[editline]15th March 2012[/editline] That's an actual livery. Zeros are more of a gray than white as most people think.
[QUOTE=Teh Zip File;35149979]Awww yeah: [t]http://i.imgur.com/bCG9U.jpg[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/qebrp.jpg[/t][/QUOTE] I see it also has a bit of photo etch, nice :3

[QUOTE=Teh Zip File;35163980]And all the photoetched parts are incredibly annoying.[/QUOTE] They tend to stick to places that they shouldn't.
To use the magic that is known as Future floor wax, you need these items. [img]http://i.imgur.com/VdgwR.png[/img] Start by washing the clear parts in soap and water. Dry them off then plunge them into the Future. Let it stay in there for about 5 seconds. Put them on a paper towel then cover it with something and let it dry for at least a day. You now have realistic looking glass. Before [img]http://i.imgur.com/lSesv.png[/img] After [img]http://i.imgur.com/z4MPb.png[/img]
What tools do you guys use to trim out unwanted plastic? And how would you paint with a brush with decent quality?
[QUOTE=ZeroS;35173125]What tools do you guys use to trim out unwanted plastic?[/QUOTE] Wire cutters and a modelling knife work just fine. Sandpaper helps, but I don't use it that often. As for painting, I'll just say what RayvenQ says: Thin your paints. Mostly because I can't paint for shit myself.
Worked on that thing of mine a bit more, the back part was a nightmare and didnt fit at all..

I sliced my hand open trying to trim some plastic off my A6M2-N. I probably lost enough blood to paint the entire fuselage.
HobbyLobby has its 40% off coupon again. It's the perfect time to get an airbrush.
Finished assembling the staghound: [URL=http://i.imgur.com/sVuiE.jpg][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/sVuiEl.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [I]Some parts may or may not be missing.[/I] Gonna put the wheels/pickaxe/shovel on it after I paint it.
I found an old snap together Revell F-14 in my closet. If I have any brushes that aren't covered in dried paint I might try to paint it in an Iranian paint scheme.
Is it possible to paint a body with just a brush and seats and what not without it looking like utter shit?
Finished the staghound: [img]http://i.imgur.com/78MFj.jpg[/img] I even made a "studio" using a folder and three pieces of paper. :v:

Revival content! I recently got back into modeling after my mom put my dad's half finished Ferrari F2001 in my room, since he hadn't touched in months. So I finished it (all be it with a few missing bits and decals unfortunately) [T]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18418859/MyModels/F2001Front.JPG[/T] [T]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18418859/MyModels/F2001Rear.JPG[/T] After I finished this I realized I wanted my own to do from start to finish, so we popped down to a local hobby shop, and they had this.

The Evo was just finished yesterday: [T]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18418859/MyModels/LancerEvoVIFront.JPG[/T] [T]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18418859/MyModels/LancerEvoVIRear.JPG[/T] And the Skyline is in production: [T]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18418859/MyModels/SkylineR33Current.JPG[/T] After I bought these I guess my dad realized he wanted to get back into as well, so he bought this as a project for the both of us.

So my brother slipped on water and dropped both of my ship models while we were moving out of the dorms :C All of the little life-rafts on my USS Missouri floated away and the masts broke off :C

[QUOTE=markedOne;35795108]Tamiya 1:35 M41 Walker Bulldog [/QUOTE] Looks a lot better than mine v:v:v That's really weird rust color though.
Cool Bulldog. I have a 1/16 scale one thats broken. Gearbox stripped out :/ So I placed an order for a Paasche H AB and Air Regulator yesterday. Will be here saturday. I picked up one of these; [IMG]http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRBkklVaOFf-IO0xbNxSrEU9wfK-_2tTuzDShzPId562ScTu8sP-g[/IMG] Really excited, trying to take my time on this one. Bought clear and gloss coat, and have weathering supplies on hand. Also a proper hobby knife and nice brushes :dance:
