Modeling question (Related to sanding)

I haven't posted here in a long time.. I was just wondering about the best ways for sanding accordingly to the shape of the part. For instance, having sandpaper put on something that if soft/rubbery, such as your finger, helps to not flaten out rounded parts as the sandpaper can easly mold in shape ...

Hopefully.. the cake won't be A LIE THIS TIME!!!

I wonder how the will improve over Portal.. They will need to improve it ALOT because I wouldn't buy Portal just by itself without TF2 or the three other HL2 games.

What are Speed-Grades like?

Using the nippers first is what you should be doing. But as you'll find out, plastics in these models can have an array of different hardnesses. Some can be stiff and difficult to cut cleanly and some can be relatively soft and easy to cut. After a while you'll find that on softer plastics, leaving...

What I do is use nippers to get rid of most of the sprue and then just cut with the exacto knife.. but usually I either scrape parts I don't w...

Exacto knife tips wanted

I understand that modelling is mainly about finding things out for yourself and ways that suit you. But I really do need some tips too for using an exacto knife. I also understand it takes practice but some tips would be nice to help me understand better how to use them to make nice clean cuts for t...

Yeah, "kinda" like scraping the top of a stick of butter. You want to angle the blade away from you and pull towards your thumb. Here are the pics though: This is the area on your model in question? Right behind those 2 little bumps on the side? If so, then this would be the angle I would cut at so...

You can "scrape sand" with a xacto blade. Kind of what I think Scorn was trying to say. You want slice off as much excess as you can then with the blade angled away from you, pull the blade towards you...kind of like shaving with a straight razor. You want to do this gently and gradually because th...

Try using the Xacto at a 45 degree angle to the proper corner to shave off the slag. This way, even if you're a little imprecise, the divot won't be so bad. Also, shave very gently. If the knife starts catching on something, you're probably starting to cut into the model proper rather than the extr...

If you could take a pic of the problem area it would be a huge help. I may try.. but I'm not even sure my camera is even able to keep focus so close since they are small. Ill try to explain better beforehand. EDIT: Okay I used an image from dalong to show you. I do not own the image and will use a ...

^^ This takes an extremely steady hand, but you can gently slide the xacto along the ragged spru to slice it off. When I cut pieces off the sprus I use a snipper but leave a good sized chunk of spru left on the piece. It actually makes it a bit easier to cut off a larger left over piece of spru tha...

I'd rather not make a new topic for this so ill ask here. When you use a exato knife the part you sliced off leaves a rougher and less shiney look on the part and it sticks out. How do you get rid of this WITHOUT sanding!

Re: Gurren-Lagann Revoltech?

During my perusal of the earlier episodes of Gurren-Lagann (which, sadly, is all I've been able to get up to recently, having only recently finished downloading the series), I noticed that the titular mech would make one hell of a Revoltech figure. Has there been any news on this at all? I noticed ...

I would really love to know why they made the legs not very articulated.. A double joint knee ( a REALLY goo example of that is the strike freedom MG) could easily fix that problem up.

How do you remove marks in the mold parts +EDIT:new question

Usually. You get these weird wavey lines in parts in the mold
How do I remove these marks or whatever? Im guessing sanding but is there anything else special to it? I'd rather not screw up my models so I wanna check to make sure.

What If I weren't to do the whole kit, But rather thick details that would normally be put in with stickers? By thick I mean not the size of a panel line but a pretty large detail in comparison like... a panel line but 5 times as thick as a normal panel line. EDIT: By prime he meant to wash the kit ...
