1/537 Reliant Aztec decal update #2
« on: June 25, 2017, 01:08:27 pm »
As many of you may know I have been on my Reliant forever. When finally assembled and everything working, my Aztec decals were not good. So I downloaded the Pen-Dragon ones. After attempting to re-size them, I said to heck with it and just decided to use them the way they are. Well either bad decal paper or what, I don't know and those failed too!

I found a shop that has the new Round 2 ones and ordered them. Lets hope they work!

In the mean time I'm working on the Star Wars AT-ST Walker and scored this today on Amazon.

Thanks. It has been a work in progress. Over 2 years on this one after destroying my last attempt.

Here is a few pics of the newly re-issued Reliant Aztecs by Cartograf. These are much improved over the last ones! More pictures as I go along.

So far, so good! Takes awhile for them to settle on the bumpy parts.

Hmm, what is the appropriate expression of frustration?  Considering the build it must be:

KAHHHHNNNN!!!!

Here are a couple more pics of the Aztecs. These decals are amazing! Things were going along quite well, then one night I noticed I had read the decal numbers upside down. So I had one quite large decal in the wrong spot. I was able to remove it complete and put it down again in the right spot! I have only tore one but was able to save it.

I'm over half done applying them. More pictures to come.

Looking great!

What color/shade did you use for your base coat?
