Luckily it's a hollywood myth. Infact he was an outstanding soldier\ said:Incidently, I don't know if you are aware but the bloke who was actually shot, unfortunately died from his wounds some two years after the incident.
There has been a recent fad,started by Tamiya (I think) and perpetuated by Trumpeter amongst others to put 'rubber' tyres in their aircraft kits made from a soft plastic. These invariably do have mold lines. The best way to sand them off is to give the tyre a few hours in the freezer before doing the work. It might work for soft plastic figures as well should the need arise.\ said:no trimming, which being soft plastic I was dreading!
Hi Ron,\ said:Polux and Andy, What's with the 'Sir'! I'm only a thick old joiner (ret.)!!lolAndy, the walls are very easy to paint and similar in principal to washes on aircraft models..
Using well thinned acrylics, not much thicker than water, get hold of the 'wall' tilt it at around 45 degrees and starting at the top with a well loaded brush, paint horizontally from the top, working your way down. Don't be fussy, work quickly and keep the brush well filled with paint, otherwise you will end up with just vertical streaks. You will see the paint go into all the imperfections of the material as it flows downwards.
Once dry, you can then play around adding different shades and colours as you see fit...
Nothing clever really, the paint does it for you!
Thanks again chaps,
No disrespect taken Andy, it was just my feeble attempt at humour!lolIf you need any more info. or help with walls ect. just let me know....\ said:Hi Ron,It's just a sign of respect that's all, it's how I was brought up, plus, it's the ex Forces coming out of me I think, I do not mean any disrespect by it...
