After totally screwing up the paint on this model a while ago, I FINALLY got back to it. I started this thing last summer, and got it together and started painting it, and then stuff happened and I didn't have time. Then I worked on it late at night a couple of times, and screwed up the paint so it looked pretty awful.

Today I finally mixed up a lighter NATO green (with a bit of yellow) and sprayed it VERY lightly over the poorly-painted green parts in tiny thin layers until it looked blended. Now it looks like this:

Image

Image

So yeah. Better. It's not going to be all model-show-prize-winner quality, but now I can finally do some detail painting, stick on some decals, seal it good, and call it done. Then I can work on something else.

That part where something is wrong with a project, and I keep working it over in my head instead of just getting in and fixing it? That's the worst. :/

That's so cool. It looks fantastic - you did a really nice job. Do you have to decide on the colouring yourself or does the model come with a guide?

Thanks!

It's based on the 80's version of NATO camo-- basically, black and green. I took a million pictures of the one at the tank museum where I volunteer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/solipsistn ... 714779262/

...and then I more or less copied that. And then there's a bunch of semi-fancy painting techniques that I mostly did okay with (washes with very dilute paint, stuff like that) that improve the contrast on lines between panels and stuff and make it look kind of greasy and dirty.

The kit does come with a guide listing the different countries that bought these things and drove them around, but this is the one I like.

And in case you're curious how big it is:

Image

The real thing will fit in a 1-car garage.

That's awesome, solipsis. I probably mentioned earlier in the thread that I used to work in a hobby store (my first job, in fact) that sold model vehicles of all manners--ships, airplanes, tanks. And I do wish I had appreciated at the time I worked there how cool everything was.

Thanks. This is the first model I've gotten all detailed and stuff on. I used a bunch of techniques for the first time and while I think it came out pretty well I still see all the stuff I could have done better. Next time around, no camo. 8)

I just made a bunch (but am still collecting and will always be making more) of magnets out of really hilarious sherif reports from newspapers. There are some really amazing ones...

I also am making a bunch of hoopy-type gauged earrings out of sculpey/phemo (sp?), but I'm still not the best sculpter and certain shapes have been kinda difficult for me to make look good, like big stars. I just got a temporary oven for my house so I'll be able to start making these again!

Most of the projects I've been working on have been crude construction-type things since I just moved into a new and kinda janky house. On the list for this weekend is building a ramp for my dog to run down from our loft bedroom so she doesn't have to choose between making the 10 foot jump every day (I think it's getting painful for her middle aged joints!) and sleeping in the cold downstairs. My bf made one but it turned out to be a little short...we're trying to do everything with used wood so it's taking a little while. We built a fence a week ago, and built a pretty dang cool compost house the other day.

Yay projects! Theres a lot of really awesome and neat things on here-good job ya'll!

this is my thesis installation! the whole thing is done now but I haven't had pictures taken yet so I wanted to share some process shots!

before I can hang any of the prints I have to grid it all out so the spacing is as precise as possible. I experimented with a bunch of techniques and blue tape ended up being the best, but it takes FOREVER.
Image

~15hrs in:
Image

and here it is the next day while I was still installing the shelving for the books, ft. my friend lauren interacting with it.
Image

all the process shots! I'll eventually have nice pictures of it finished!

That's pretty cool-- it looks like a lot of work, but the end result seems like it's worth it.

Here's my latest model-- it's not a very good kit, so I'm experimenting with weathering techniques and stuff. I did a neat sort of thing using salt and multiple layers of paint to simulate chipped paint, and it came out pretty well:

Image

Some parts look good, and some just look weird. Either way, I know how to do it better next time around, which was the whole point of the exercise.

That's maybe a week from being finished, assuming I have some childless airbrush time in there. Mostly it's going to be brush painting from now on though, and I can do that at night when everyone's asleep...

I'm making a luchador mask decorated like Sylvia Ji's Santa Muerte.

I'm still making the white mask itself. The shape of the eyeholes needs changing to resemble sockets more.

Daaamn, you are all doing some awesome things! I need to upload some of my current art projects.

Boober: where do you buy your microns? They are ridiculously expensive here, and I need to get my hands on some - unless you have some advice on what else to get that creates a good black color and doesn't smudge?
