Model Building

Post by maxime on Sat May 23, 2009 3:51 am

for the first time in 5 years i am going to attempt to build a model lol

my experince with model buildings comes as this (model cars(remote control model cars), planes, action figures and my favourite Zoid models (from tv program))
well recently i have been given a Gundam Model to build up from the beginning and was wondering if anyone had any tips for this... my experince is practically at beginners level because i follow instructions i havent added my own technique to assembling models before as ive seen others do...

ill post a picture of the before and after later ^___^

lmao i knew someone would think that but i never thought it would be you Kiri hehe
(ive actually thought about taking up photography and photographing models.... but i dont like it when a bunch of models moan and groan that the food is too fattening and think that they are fat even if they are size 0
-.-

but at the same time it would be a good experience hehe

_________
anyway its ok you dont need to know much about models im just looking for opinions and advice ^__^

^___^

thanks DK you dont need to know how you can help but i can tell you that you are helping right now ^__^

because every now and then a question that i cant answer myself i will put forth here and it will give you aswell as everyone a chance at helping me build it ( i could almost say it will be built with group effort hehe) and then afterwards i can show the result of all the hardwork that has been put into it ^^ hehe


but right now i have a few left over tools from 5 years ago:
wire clippers
super glue
glue brush
(cloth and water)
and my 2 hands ^____^

(i am yet to recieve the model and i may attempt to get anotherone before the weeks end but ill let eveyone know ^^)

wow!

yeah with plastic models ive noticed that they can be very fragile so when putting them together or taking them out of the package you must use extreme caution and then when it comes to painting and glueing the same because its easy to make accidents (last night i spent half an hour trying to put a sticker on straight lol) so it is expected to be difficult ^____^

i cant wait to see the progression of the my model ^___^

ok then, at least you completed it ^___^
i am not too fond of lego but Star Wars models are usually not that easy to build (im thinking of proper models not the lego type) it took my friend a few months to complete a melennium falcon that was 60cm wide and 75-80cm long (it was very detailed because it opened up and the entire inside was modeled aswell) but that was 5 years ago lol
