Modelers Questions Board / Re: 1/350 refit question
« Last post by CrowTRobot on February 18, 2018, 04:50:49 am »
For the protruding clear bits like nav lights I used tiny dabs of plain white glue (e.g. Elmer's). After painting you can remove it with the tip of a #11 X-Acto blade. For the windows I used the masks included in the Orbital Drydock masking set (trading $$$ for time saved), but you could also make your own masks with some Tamiya tape and a good punch & die set. I masked the RCS thrusters and other odd bits with Tamiya tape cut to size with a very sharp scalpel (#11 X-Acto blade would also work), a good straight edge (stainless steel ruler), and a cutting mat. Actually, a punch & die set, scalpel, straight edge, cutting mat, and Tamiya tape will allow you to mask darned near any small details on any model. A good circle cutter would round out the set of tools (I used them to cut masks for model plane wheel hubs).
Modelers Questions Board / 1/350 refit question
« Last post by neilfsmith on February 17, 2018, 07:08:59 pm »
Hi. I'm new here after a long time of watching all your builds. Gives me hope for my attempt on the Widowmaker (1/350 refit). My first - of probably many - question is: I've already put the lights in the saucer. So when priming/painting, what are my best bets for masking the LEDs and/or the holes for the navy lights and RCS thrusters, etc.?

Like I said, I've read a lot of the builds here, but for that particular step I haven't found any recommendations.

Welcome aboard Wizard....  Take your shoes off and stay awhile...

I don't recall a JJprise build here recently but I'm sure you'll find one if you hunt around a little bit.

Hope you have fun with it!!!

Here is a low res pic.
I would need some measurements of your model to size them correctly.
looking forward to seeing it lit.
Good to have you back, David!

I've got some better decals for that. Doesn't look too bad for a garage kit.
I've seen worse.

Let's see what kind of decals you have there Cameron.
Modelers Questions Board / Re: primer
« Last post by LynnInDenver on February 16, 2018, 07:39:59 pm »
Thanks all!  I was wondering if any of the primers might be 'thinner' than the others, as in a fine thin layer of primer.  I haven't seen an issue using rust-o-leum or krylon, just wondering if something like Mr. Surfacer 1000 (et al) was worth the cost.

Mr. Surfacer is pretty good when you get to that. About as easy to use as the aforementioned Tamiya Fine Surface Primer, comparable to Tamiya acrylics in terms of getting it into the airbrush and spraying.
Modelers Questions Board / Help With Bandai!
« Last post by simi on February 16, 2018, 06:45:28 pm »
Hello all,

OK - I'm sooooo close to finishing the Bandai Slave 1 kit...and guess what...I totally lost the Boba Fett figure!!!  I even had him painted up rather nicely! 

So rather than spend another $40 on a new kit for 1 small piece - I'm hoping someone here can help.  I've gotten replacement spruces from Round 2, but can I get one from Bandai?  If so, where do I make the request?  Or, if not, would anyone want to part with their dear Boba Fett sfor a reasonable dollar amount?  Pleeeeaaase??

Help me SciFiModelAction...you're my only hope!
