Looking fantastic! I notice you mask with tape, cutting curves into it. Do you just have a wide masking tape and then cut directly into it with a normal xacto? Or do you have another method? I currently use the blue-tac and have trouble getting really nice curves in it. Tracing a pattern and cuttings seems a much more elegant solution.

Seth,

Saw this the over day, have a look...

http://www.craftyproducts.co.uk/gyro-cut?search=gyro-cut

...I believe they sell them at Telford Show.

...or if you can bear it, take a look at the October International Scale Modeller Show. The squiggly lines probably look straight to some of them (beer of the week...omg). [smile]

Thanks, having fun :-). I used indeed some wide tape, stick it on the cuttingmat and did some freehand curves with the xacto till I got more or less the shape I was looking for. I sealed the paint with future between the different layers to minimize the risk of ripping of the paint - worked fin.

Hey, nice tool. Cutting curves is probably much nicer with this... Had to bend myself quit a bit around those 180 degree curves ;-)

Fabian, worth looking at that show (mostly drunken crap with cats & dogs), it will demostrate what it can do.

If I bought one of them my daughter would steal it for her scrapbooking.

Love to get over to Telford, we could all meet up and christen Pete's Man Cave. [wink]

Speaking of international scale modeller shows, there is one here in NL on the 31st of Oct. I've talked briefly to Fabian about it, and I think I've seen more NL posters here on the board. Looks like a good event and hopefully they have a lot of hard to find/get modeling supplies.

I'm saving up all my pennies [smile]

Also pressed on with painting the carrier. A lot of masking but nothing to write home about. Here are some pictures:






And as a egg basket...



Could call this done but I want to try making some water. Have to do some research first...?

Hope you like it, thanks for watching!
