I had a few people E-mail me, asking me questions on how did I do this, and what colours where used in the painting of my models. I posted some of my early work at CultTVman when I did not have a Web site of my own.. To view my other models try these links below....
I will be more in-depth on how I assembled these models at a later date, but the first model I wish to talk you through is the U.S.S. Voyager. Just click on the thumbnails to get a more detailed look.
|Preparation of Model
Before any work can be started on the model, gluing etc., spend a few moments in preparation. I know how excited you can get at times, as soon as you get the model out of the box and you want to get going in gluing and painting etc.
Using a set of pliers, cut near to the end of the model parts, where the skeleton frame holds the model. TIP! Try and not cut flush to the model, but leave some of the skeleton frame parts on so it can be filed off using a set of modeling file's.
I did this once to often with some models and was left with an awful looking rip in the frame and had to repair the damage with Putty.
and Aft spine
Wash all the parts of the model in hot soapy water and
using a nylon scouring pad, lightly and I mean lightly!!
just rub over the out side of the model parts. Washing
gets rid of any oily residue from the place the model was made, and
also the handling of the model.
