Nah not a copier. The regular laser printers I work on are needlessly complicated as it is. This was a thermal label printer that I worked on. I usually don't like saying what company I work for on the internet. Never know who might be looking.

Oh, right. I used to work for Pacific Office Automation and worked on copiers and faxes. Just funny to hear of another tech building models lol.

I work on all kinds of stuff. Printers, scanners, computers, and servers. Get to work on all kinds of older printers too. Lot of dot matrix printers, think I still have a few shuttle printers. Believe the last of the ancient band printers are gone. Those were a pain. Also work on scanners all the way from small desktop scanners to 6' tall 250 sheet per minute beasts. It's a 2 man job to replace the motor in those when they go out. With all the different stuff that I work on I was in training for over 2 months.... in omaha nebraska...... during winter...... I lived in arizona before this job, and now in houston. I don't like snow. lol

I also have the very same set of mag-glasses, although I can't use them for too long. They are very good, just be careful how you change the lenses.

Pete is right about seeing the future. Wonder what you would see wearing them after using Alclad 2?

Kenny, great models. Good to see you've gone for 3 differing sizes, and I have no problem you doing them on one thread at all.

Maybe you would see a parallel universe. Possibly the universe you see would be based off the number of the alclad 2 that you were painting with. lol. Figured I would have to be careful with them. Even the more expensive ones I was looking at, had reviews saying to be careful when changing lenses.

I'm as happy as I can be about the figures I ordered without seeing them in person yet. That will probably be the ultimate test. Deciding how much I like them when I see them in person. 3 different sizes wasn't the plan originally. Was trying to get larger figures to make it easier on myself, but when I saw the 2 smaller ones I had a hard time passing them up.

Finally got shipping confirmation on my paints today. Shipped from memphis tennessee, so I might get them this week still if I'm lucky. Got the first figure in today, and the second one and the mag glasses visor thing should be here tomorrow. Can't really get started on them, since most of the paints that I'm going to be painting them with aren't here yet. Going to take a lot of self control to not sit on the tracking page refreshing every 15 seconds. Think this is very accurate right now.

Couldn't help myself this morning. Had to check the tracking again on the paints. Looks like fedex is planning on taking their time with getting it from memphis tn to houston tx. Finally has an estimated delivery date, and it's not till next wednesday [bawl]. Most I'll probably be able to do till then is clean up the mold lines as best as I can, and maybe put some primer on them. Guess I'll decide on that a little later. Maybe I'll pull out the figures for my bomber to at least start getting ready for figure painting by painting figures. LOL.

It's always horrible having to wait for things to arrive, I really can't wait to see what you have in store for us

Thanks pete. I can't wait to see how it's going to turn out myself. I'm trying to be ambitious with these figures, so I'm not quite sure how they are going to turn out yet.

And that attitude is exactly what is going to make your skills skyrocket in this workshop GB. That's how SimonD approached it and he made huge leaps in technical ability. You're going to love this by the time its over Kenny. lol [biggrin][biggrin]

You'll love it after you hate it, that is lol. After the sixth repaint of some figures eyes you'll be thinking of just leaving them out forever more and just leaving dark shadowy pits, but then after the 8th try on the second or third figure it comes out perfect and you get hooked. That's when you know without a doubt that you can do it, and painting everything else gets more fun, because you're going to add a figure or two that will make people take a good, long look at your model.*

Mikes absolutely right, you go balls out for it mate ! It's this kind of positive mindset that will push you forward and enable you to exceed what you think you are capable of.
We will encourage you all the way and help wherever we can Kenny, Mike and Nigel's encouragement and advice has helped massively in my confidence and techniques and it's really helping me to improve.

I'm really looking forward to watching you get stuck in

Pete

Thanks guys. I'm starting to get a picture in my mind on how I want them to turn out. The trick is going to be getting them to turn out that way. Got myself plenty of time. Will soon have lots more paints, and some rather nicely detailed figures to work with.

I have both the smaller figures now. One came fully assembled and just needed the sword bent straight. The other one came in pieces, so I'm going to get to figure out how to assemble a metal model. Should be fun.

Here are some pictures of Lonnia the duelist (manufacturer's name [wink]). She has some mold lines that I'm going to have to take care of, but they don't seem to be that bad.


And here is Finari the Crusader Paladin. Some mold lines again to take care of, with these being a little more substantial. However the bigger thing will be assembling her.


Now both of them are probably going to be sitting to the side till I get the paints in. If I started on them now it would make the wait for the paints even harder than if I just waited till I had the paints to start.
