Trials and tribulations of 2020
2020 is clear vision. So, don’t look to close at the 3 models I was able to complete this year !
Lessons learned in modeling as a new beginner on this awesome Supportive website.
Keep the box you kit came in and look at the box art Often.
Clean your parts. Some plastics will not let paint stick very well on them w.o. Doing this.
Use this box And lid to keep your sub assemblies dust free when not working on them.
( Hard to do in California with all the dust in the air.)
Learn how to use your paints and materials. Experiment on your lesser kits.
( That said, I am serious about making a dedicated and portable spray booth.)
The 2 planes are gritty and had lots of paint problems but the acrylics allow lots of touch up possibilities ! The Revell Defiance ship was better in quality and for an old kit a very nice one indeed.
Procedures reveal themselves with experience gathered. It’s the light that shines on the path already traveled as the Chinese proverb says.
Don’t give up and move on .
Happy 2121 to all.
