i wish i had stuff that people like....... i'd post up shitloads of my models :(

everybody should go get free fotki photo albums and put their link in their signature.

i mean the free accounts wont allow you to post actual pics over here once your free trial runs out but you could still have the link in your sig and everyone can click it and browse all your albums.

Easy way to make headliners, hood insulation, or blower blankets.
Get a non-quilted paper towel. Lay it over the part you want covered, then liberally wet it with a mix of water (30%) and white glue (70%). Let it dry for a full day, gently remove from the part, trim to size, paint with a flat paint, and then reattach to the model.

To remove imperfections in your painted bodies such as tape lines, hazing of the paint from tape when used to spray another color over the base color, etc.. Instead of using fine sand papers or rubbing compounds to remove these imperfections, try using a wash cloth and a paper towel. First take the wash cloth and use it to blend the area of concern by rubbing it as you would with sand paper. Be patient, it takes some time but the result will be worth it. The best part is you will not rub through the paint at easily. You will end up with a finish that will appear to be slightly dull and have some fine scratches as if the paint has buffer burn. Now take the paper towel and use it to polish the painted surface by rubbing the area quickly in a left to right motion. You will start to notice that the scratches and dull areas will start to disappear and the paint will blend back to the original shine. Continue to polish as needed until all the paint is blended to the desired shine. The paper towel also works will by itself as a polishing cloth. The best thing about this technique is that your not really removing as much paint as with sandpaper, but blending the paint back into the existing paint.

It would be nice if their was a single website where we could contribute diferent techniques and ideas so we would not have keep doing this once and a while on this forum. And so people could check that site before asking common questions. Don't get me wrong, I like helping people but sometimes I just get tired of seeing the same questions over and over again and for myself I don't like asking questions which might have been covered already but it is very hard to check right now with the search feature turnd off on this forum.
