Do you mean the Phanyom group build Allen ? If so there is a section for builds on the main forum home page
For the August competition you just need to post "count me in" in that section and Bobby selects a winner randomly, if you just have an ongoing build, or a finished one for that matter then just post it in the relevant section, armour, aircraft modern, vehicle etc

Hope this helps

When I was modeling back when I was a kid and teen I just did jets and fast cars but since I got back into the hobby two years back 90% of the stuff I do is WW2 aircraft.

This year I'm gonna try my hand at more of a verity of stuff.

Hi,
Stash is a mix of all kinds and all scales [smile].
Last two decades : Le Mans prototypes in 1/48 and 1/24, mainly AFV from WW1 to nowadays,
Uboat in 1/144, 1/72 and 1/35. Sci-fi in 1/35, 1/20 and 1/8. 90% of the builds stopped after 2 layers of primer.

Guys, this is a "dead" thread started by a discredited former sponsor.

It's just the cheaper version of the Profipack series as there is no Photo Etch in the weekend series

Hi All,
A soft question please:
Why does the paint come off and onto the tamiya thin glue applicator? I just started using tamiya acrylic spray paints - am I doing something wrong?
Appreciate any comments, help, guidance.
Cheers,
Phil

Hiya Phil,

The glue will dissolve the paint mate

To be honest you want to avoid using liquid cement on painted parts as it doesn't really give a good bond and can get quite messy.
It's better to assemble as much of a kit as you can before painting, or at least try and keep areas that need gluing free from paint if possible.

For things like bombs and missiles and smaller parts, I paint first and then attach them with thick super glue.

what parts of your kit are you gluing mate ?

Thanks Pete,
I am in the cockpit, so my thinking was to paint the parts then glue, otherwise it's fiddly getting the brush in. I've watched Bobby glue everything then spray, then do the detail painting, though how he get's the brush in to the finer parts is a skill I will have to work on. As I progress the current build, I will spend a bit more thinking time on it and go for the gluing - spray, then pick out the detail. I must it's a soft mistake, but good to confirm from from experience - plus your comments - the way to go forward now.
Cheers Pete, appreciated.
Phil

Hi Phil. Another trick you can use is to slice up thin strips of tape and mask off the areas you will later need to glue. For weapons I usually pre-drill small holes and then pin them to the model. I find small paper clips work well for that application with a dab of super glue. Makes knocking them off a lot harder to do and if you get clever enough you can hide the pins and no one will ever see them.

Otherwise you can paint up your parts after some strategic assembly to make it easier after the parts are painted. Sometimes you can just scrape a bit of paint off of the places you need to glue. There are more ways to be creative, but I think those are the ones most of us use.

Thanks Brindos, great advice and well appreciated. I am of the mind that I need to spend a bit more time on the fiddly bits to suss out the glue - spray - glue - paint order of things. I am definately in the old school of "paint and glue"(humbrol enamel with brush and the old tube poly stuff) but since discovering this site and videos, I am trying to up my game , so this forum is a great tool for getting a much better quality end product - just need the practice is all.
Loving the forum and the tips, tricks and friendly advice from everyone.
You have a great day Brindos,

Cheers,

Phil
