Hey guys, since we are all aviation, Armour and naval enthuiasts, its only natural to reactivate the modeling forum that was here back in the day when Snipe horrido and Gio started the forum. I only think it will tremendously boost the popularity of this forum, and will bring more military enthusiasts and vets here. It will also contribute to the education of ppl, as we will all talk about our model subject in scale, not to mention all the scale modeling techniques as applied to military modeling. :)

It was here for a while, and then it disappeared. So what do you say? :rolleyes:

Lull! SHhhhhh! It was supposed to be a SURPRISE. Now I'll probably have to delete this thread, and if you post about it again, I may have to delete you, too! :eek:

I made a forum for models, but then I got rid of it when nobody took much interest in it. I combined the military images, general images, and military models forums into one.

So can we start posting our model pics in the military images forum then? :)

Anyway for starters here is my Sukhoi Flanker that I just finished :

There are a couple of things you need to do to help that...

Apply a gloss-coat covering to the surface so it's smooth for decal application.
Wash the surface of any dust or fingerprints.
Remove the decals from the water after the backing is wet.
Let it sit on a paper towel for several minutes until the decal slides freely.
Apply a decal setting agent (usually a vinegar solution) to the model.
Use a soft brush to adjust the decal.
Blot the decal with a clean cotton cloth.
Apply a decal solvent to the decal after it's set to melt the decal onto the model.

Contact me if you have any questions.

Since this kinda applies to the models I thaught maybe I would post some pictures of my toy soldier battles, and no they arent the Toys R Us kind, they are a bit higher class then that lol.

I have some nice Alamo, Zulu War and WW2 figures, tanks, etc I could set up and take pictures.

Anyone else here collect/buy toy soldiers?

Please post them, Chris. One of my dad's shooting buddies does Napoleonic figures, and one of the women in my model club paints flat figurines.

Hi, I am new here, Can we talk of some real models, ie mathematical models instead of physical ones. Good images here. Any specialists here... :biggrin:

Sorry, Hoss, a little too specialized, and not a specialty the general WAB membership cares a whole helluva lot about. I think maybe you'd be happier with that subject on message boards dedicated to it.

-daleNice job. You have a very meticulous sense of detail.

In one of those pics though there is a giant dog about to attack!

Thanks! Aftermarket photoetch and resin add-ons are a great help. And I am not a terrible painter.

Truth be told, the quality of the kits today is so good that it's hard to NOT have them turn out looking good.

Heres a piece of my work. Mind you its a copy-cat type thing since I used the paint scheme that the creators of the model said, I'm just horrible at paint schemes and don't have too big an imagination with creating new ones.

Still a really good job, Trajan. I assume a WarHammer kit? Give us an overview of the kit and your experiences and materials to construct and finish it! :biggrin:

Yea, its Warhammer 40k. I like their tanks and other models. Basically, if you buy one, don't follow the directions too closely; you'll end up hating the model and wishing its destruction.

The resin models are ok, which some of this was resin and plastic, so they compliment each other. But over all, I think I prefer plastic since I am clumsy at times, and dropping a piece is not fun.

I used Citadel Paints to do it, and basically just normal modelling tools, nothing too special. But I do like it, and I am planning on making a unit of infantry to go with it; maybe make a Warhammer Afrika Corp version. :D

New guy here, saw the modeling area, thought I would post. I will do a WW2 plane from time to time. I have a passion for Bf109's. I just ordered 9 more from a online Hobby Shop down in TX after I realized I was down to just 4 unfinished kits. I have a Stuka ready for some air brushing. Nice pictures here. I believe in a previous thread (vote for the model airplane) there is a 1/72 P47. I have the same exact model on one of my shelfs.
