Nice video John – I’m returning to painting miniatures and as they’ll nearly all plastic now I found this film very helpful thankyou. There’s a few things I’d like to ask you:
Firstly what glue do you use? That dispenser looks spot on.
Also there seemed to be quite a lot of split line flash (the line where the moulds halves meet) on those figures, is that common on most makes of models? I’d imagine it’d would show up like a bitch when painted.
Lastly, watching you use your blade to clean up the sprue marks made me think of these, you may find in certain cases, like the helmet, that these work a treat!
Respect and Peace! @dam
@adam72 and @jtm93 its revel plastic cement, you can get it at scale model shops (airfix, revvel, that kinda thing) i use it quite a lot, its a lot thiner than workshops and it sets faster. the only problem is the nozzle can block, so usuall i take them off when their jammed, which can cause spills
Better to use the lighter gluetip trick in a well ventilated area..or outside
i agree with adam72 why not tell us what glue you use and where you get it… and the elongated necks make them look kinda alien-y if that makes sense…
any chance of uploading some of the older videos. would quite like to see this one
