Ok so I have purchased an airbrush kit so I can just use regular model paint.



Learning to airbrush takes a lot of time and effort.



I'm not going to make paintings with it, I just want an even fine coat of paint I would get from spray cans. Since I can't buy those easily where I live then this is a more realistic option



lol what a fucking loser



Um sweetie. Getting a smooth even coat with an airbrush still takes effort. It requires you learn how to airbrush a smooth coat and then keep your layers consistent and even.

Even just painting a kit with an airbrush requires a lot of learning. The complex stuff is way easier to learn than the basics are.



Ok then I'll learn it. What are you even trying to say? It's difficult so don't even try?



I'm saying don't think an airbrush is some simple miracle tool. I have one and I went back to spray cans as I didn't enjoy the airbrush and they're quite annoying to use. The first thing you will learn is how to clean it and unclog it because it will takes weeks not to fuck up paint thinning.



nice doll faggot



If spray cans were easily attainable for me then I would have just stuck with them



there's probably auto repair places near you. Lots of good modelers use car primers in rattle cans. You don't need specially branded stuff, just stuff that works.



Well I'm into the idea now of learning the airbrush, as a thing to do.

Professional modelers can make money doing custom kits but it's rarely worth it. Same with warhammer. Unless you're speed painting armies there's no money in it. And speed painting armies is a very low profit job.

The only real way to make money painting models is to become a wagie at GW or similar companies who want painters on hand monthly to paint new releases for promo shots. But those are extremely hard fought for and they usually scalp golden demon winners or people with companion connections.


Not wanting to get doxed is being a fag to you? I know you're the chink trying to bait someone so you can try and stalk them and it won't work. I don't need your approval and I don't care how hard you try.



>Go buy a toy instead fagatron. Go home you fucking gook retard.

unpainted toys are still toys



I don't consider a model kit to be a toy. A toy you can play with, a model you will damage if you play with it.

that's at least 10 bottles of cheap liquor you could have bought instead



So, models are just shitty toys then?



Would you consider a painting on canvas to just be a shitty jacket? Same material doesn't mean same object.



No because actual creativity goes into a painting. You're just painting some injection molded chinese plastic that was designed by chinks.

Jesus Christ what a bunch of walking vaginas you all are. Do you know how people develop skills and get good at difficult tasks? Trial and error isn't difficult, it just takes time, and looking up tutorials and guides is not an ordeal.

Alright since you haven't answered my question, I'll just explain. In a machine shop, surfaces get dirty over time because of aerosolized oil and coolant in the air that settles on surfaces, a lot of time this oil is yellow, which causes yellowing. A lot of this older equipment has white and green as common colors.

I wanted to give it the color scheme of an old mill or lathe, and make it look like it had been stored in a shop for an extended period of time. It's a very specific theme but I have nostalgia for it, I've spent years of my life working around equipment with that grimy look.

They look nothing like that. You have huge pools all over the place which are wildly out of scale among other problems. You're not painting a 1:1 model here, you're painting a 1:144 model. You would need to throw a canister of oil the size of a 400 pound man to get just one of those stains.

Look up some weathering tutorials on grimy WW2 tanks. They do the same effect but in scale. They usually use different paint types to make the effects easier. Stuff like AK interactives and MIGs effects range.

[spoiler]It's good that you tried to weather it. I don't want to piss on your parade because I like seeing people do more than snap fit kits. Try youtube tutorials, the Weathering magazine or hobby magazines in general to see how to do the effect in scale**

https://1337x.unblocked.lc/user/VP52/ this faggot does some great magazine torrents. Railway magazines and modeling magazines are both there. One month at a time. https://downmagaz.com/hobbies_leisure_magazine/94292-the-weathering-aircraft-october-2016.html and https://downmagaz.com/hobbies_leisure_magazine/138518-the-weathering-012018.html are what you want to look at. These are focused on what you're doing.

Good luck anon.



>You would need to throw a canister of oil the size of a 400 pound man to get just one of those stains

that's no unrealistic in terms of world building. we aren't talking about a modern machine shop where people make little widgets and drill a little hole with a little dab of tapping lubricant, we're talking about a fictional futuristic machine shop where giant mobile suit scale parts that weigh millions of tons are being manufactured. the equipment would be enormous, and the scale of everything else goes up with it. it probably wouldn't be that dirty, but one could imagine that it's a future with grimy technology like the USG Ishimura in dead space.

also i acknowledge that it's probably not the best paintjob and it could be improved. i don't have a lot of experience with painting, but i'm trying to learn more. one of the reasons i'm trying airbrush is because i've struggled with conventional painting, and maybe airbrushing will feel more intuitive. a while ago i tried to do regular paintings, and after starting with acrylic and struggling, i tried watercolor and found that to be easy and intuitive by comparison. maybe the same thing will happen in this case.

There are a few examples of oil leaks in Gundam during battle. The Gouf in 08th MS attacking the guntank is the most over the top. The Gundam X being dismantled has some nice examples ike in screencap.

You might find oil paints fit you better. What problem did you have with acrylics?

File: 22613eee5df108b⋯.jpg (198.04 KB, 1024x683, 1024:683, after.jpg)


also stains like the ones in my previous example pictures do not develop from someone spilling liquid oil onto a surface. like i said, it accumulates from aerosols in the air settling on surfaces and accumulating over time.


it's not an oil leak. that's a different thing entirely. what you're talking about would be like going outside, grabbing a handful of dirt, and dropping it onto a shelf. the type of dirtiness that i'm talking about is more akin to dust accumulating on something that nobody bothers to clean. i don't blame you for not understanding what it is, if you haven't been in a shop and seen the equipment and seen how things work and why they look the way they look, then it's probably hard to understand exactly what the effect is.

>What problem did you have with acrylics?

they dried too quickly and were difficult to blend. also, they are opaque which makes detailed underdrawings useless. mind you i am talking about conventional paintings, like portraiture. this stuff doesn't apply to models because the geometrical contouring is apparent no matter what.

I know what you're saying and the inner workings would look like that but the external armour wouldn't. You're working completely out of scale here.You're taking a small object and then applying it to something battleship sized. It just doesn't make sense. Even if they did get that dirty it would have a reason for each part being dirty, where did the stain come from not just "it's dirty". Your weathering should tell a story, even if the story is just an oil leak from a pipe.

I don't think you know how to use those paints at all. Drying time can be adjusted and they are difficult to blend if you don't have practice. You can do under painting with acrylics just fine, that's the primary way models do it actually.

>Conventional paintings doesn't apply to models

I have never read a dumber statement in my life. All the colour theory, the composure and how to apply shading and highlighting very much does apply to model painting. These days the top tier of painters are trying to figure out how to take classical painting techniques that add texture and to apply those to models.

I'm not trying to be an asshole to you. I know where you are right now and I know I was the same as you back then. Everyone who gets into modeling had to go through the phase you're at. Trust me when I say read the magazines, learn how to do these techniques well and you will see how badly you messed up what you're defending now. I'm not shitting on you, it's a right of passage and you will laugh at yourself when you look back on it. But read the damn magazines or watch some videos.




Good. And I don't care if you post an actual photo of the model you personally built unless you did something particularly cool and noteworthy with it. I jsut wanna see what bots people are going for because I have a boner for cool mech designs. There's nothing to tell about the tripfag, he just shits up boards with the usual tripfag attention whoring.


Or you can spend $40 on sale and enjoy building something, save the other sixty bucks and also not destroy your liver drinking liquid garbage.


Models are just one of many side hobbies, something to concentrate on quietly for a while that soothes the rampant autism. It's like those model ships, or jigsaw puzzles but less gay. You're given the parts, and you slowly build up to getting something that you can call yours. They all come with the same parts, but since you're the one who cuts the parts and paints them and experiences putting them all together and shit, no two models are exactly alike. You can say for a fact that the one you have is yours. It's calming and you end up with a culmination of all the little memories and mistakes and accomplishments that went into it in one neat little package for you to enjoy in the end. So it's less about the model itself and more about building it. You just have something to show for it after.

the weathering IS telling a story. it wasn't in use. it is not a story of "wear and tear" it is the result of "sit and do jack shit". maybe someone did something with it a long time ago, but the story is that it's a spare suit that nobody needed or used. it wasn't stored in a clean warehouse, for whatever reason it was stored in the corner in a machine shop and nobody used it or cleaned it. it sat there completely stationary for a few decades and accumulated a thick film of oil and coolant (which was in the air because it becomes an aerosol through the normal way that machining works) along with dust.

the story is that i've worked in shops where the equipment is dirty and looks a certain way because of certain conditions in the shop. a lot of the equipment has a certain paint job and color scheme. i took my real world experience in a real setting that actually exists, and i thought "what if instead of working in factories that machine little widgets and parts for guns and cars and shit like that, what if it was a factory for mobile suits, and it works generally the same way this factory works, but it was just huge? what if, for some reason, there was a mobile suit sitting in the corner of the shop, just like how in real shops, there's usually old finished iterations of the final product just lying around for whatever reason, like maybe something about it is broken, or it's terribly outdated, or the management or R&D department has a good reason for keeping it around, or maybe it would be more of a hassle to get rid of it than to just leave it in the corner and forget about it"


i don't think you're being an asshole. you are saying the weathering should tell a story, and i'm telling you what the story is, and it seems like you think that the aesthetic that i gave it was done out of ignorance and inexperience rather than a very specific deliberate reason. could it have been done more skillfully with more detail put into it? of course, but the fundamental aesthetic i was going for would look very similar to how it looks now, whether it was what i ended up with in reality, or if i practiced for decades and became a master painter. the originally white parts would still look yellowish-brown. it would still have a white and green paint job because that's what milling and turning equipment has, and i wanted it to look like that.


>They all come with the same parts, but since you're the one who cuts the parts and paints them and experiences putting them all together and shit, no two models are exactly alike. You can say for a fact that the one you have is yours. It's calming and you end up with a culmination of all the little memories and mistakes and accomplishments that went into it in one neat little package for you to enjoy in the end.

see this is exactly what i'm talking about. i've worked in specific jobs where the equipment looked a certain way because of a certain reason. i have nostalgia for that aesthetic, and apparently it's so autistically specific that nobody understands it but me.

The story I see is "I put on a bunch of washes and let them pool". It isn't telling the story you want. I'm not saying the look can't work, it very much can and it's usually known as a "rat" build in the car builders world.



rat rod looks completely different for completely different reasons. if you think "the machine looks shitty in a vaguely nonspecific way, for some reason" then you don't know what you're talking about..




Okie doke.


I left cuckchan in 2014 and haven't looked back so it's not an option. Not working on anything right now since I finished the last one some time ago and I'm doing other things. For the next one I was thinking a Zaku II Char Red or the Leonemeccanica TELLUS because dem smooth curves and EN weapons.


The dings and weathering all tell a tale, and certain uses and histories will have similar wear and tear. I feel you.



I told you what I was thinking and why I was thinking it. but we're going no where with this. You can paint your models any way you wish.


Sadly cuckchan, reddit or goybook are the only places with modelers these days. Not many good forums left. So I'm mostly a loner now too.

Pink zakus are always cool. Did you see the live action Zakus? They look nothing like Zakus, it's impressive how bad they fucked it up.



Ok then. You tell me since you're such an expert, how you would have done it, according to the conditions I described. Oil leaking out of crevices isn't something that would happen, scratches and dents and gashes aren't something that would happen. You can paint, right? Paint me a little picture in Photoshop of what an armor panel would look like, according to how you think it should be done.



I'm not going to draw you a picture retard.



<Dude I'm just trying to help you, trust me I know how to do this better than you do

>Ok then do it in a way that actually tangible




You were given plenty of advice and examples. If you're too much of a nigger to apply them yourself it's not my problem. Go be a nigger kike some where else.



i found 80% of this kit for 50 cents at a good will



>Did you see the live action Zakus? They look nothing like Zakus, it's impressive how bad they fucked it up.

No, I haven't. I dunno how you can fuck up a Zaku, they're not exactly complicated. All the more reason to just stick to the source material if you want quality. Kind of rich to say that when I want a mech irl, but what are you gonna do.


Going to try printing the rest?

well I don't know that you are rich like me or not

but here is my advice

do not wasted your money on something you don't really want . just save money for what you actually want.

save money for your MG or PG

why? because at the end you will lack of space to collect it . I have this problem before . my HG gundam wing break so easy if you move it after 10 years passed .

I prefer the metal build series which more worthy

my fav gundam is ……..everything that is not gundam like Turn-X

All gundam are the same it look boring

Turn X are master piece of art . it was design by Syd mead. who design mechanic in blade runner movie

Analockman (Thailand native)



Holy fuck



thats a cool motherboard OP. did you get it off aliexpress? looks asian.



nice doll



>Going to try printing the rest?

I dont have a printer. I plan to just steal parts from kits that I dont like anymore and painting them. Its going to be a monstrosity.

I'm trying to combine WW2 weaponry with MS. Not sure what scale matches up well so trying a few different kits.

Whoever said airbrush is too hard and getting consistent coverage is hard and that I should just give up




Looks like shit, you can see how patchy the paint work is all over the place. You did exactly what was predicted and you're proud of it.

You can see the texture in the picture. Take your shitty anime girl and shove it up your ass faggot.



Why don't you try making your paints as good as can be and experiment with your canvas? In this instance your plastic gundam should be every so slightly roughed up with a fine sandpaper. Also, you should hand paint it, not use an airbrush.



oh no my fist attempt ever at using an airbrush wasn't flawless top tier pro quality, i guess i should just kill myself now



You should kill yourself. You act like every other faggot on reddit where you think your shit doesn't stink and you're proud of the mess you made.

Chris chan does a better job than you do.



Roughshod boyobraska. I see gradients that would look like mountains to a being who was as small as a speck. You need to layoff that airbrush. It's not as cool as they say because a fine hand and a good hair-brush is better.



>entire front page is nothing but horny teens and retarded zoomers

>bitches about THIS thread


Making a micromouse respond to voice commands. Results are mixed. I might see if I can combine any of this with a kit someday to make a model that waves at you or something.


Real advice:

1. Mix and thin your paints as fine and smoothe as lacquer

2. Use a real brush and not that airshit. Airbrush is for touchups.

3. You can do it. Keep going.

nigger you haven't posted a single thing that takes any real heightened skill level. models painted in clean colors without any washes, effects, or wear in sight, and can you prove you didn't just use spray cans? anyone and their grandma can segregate parts, put them on bamboo skewers with sticky tack, spray them different colors with cans, put it together and give it a matte clear coat

>muh dox

you're talking out of your ass and nobody believes you're as good as you say you are. nobody gives a fuck about you, nor will they ever, for your dox to matter to anyone ever. you're just one mediocre modeler in a sea of mediocrity. you have completely failed to justify that you are in any place to talk down to anyone. why are all your pictures such low resolution? afraid someone might look at the texture under a microscope and see you sprayed a little too much in one spot in the same coat? are you scared someone might see that you're too lazy to sand your sprue gates smooth and you just clip them near flush?

Started gunpla recently with a sinanju sd then mg zaku II char custom, Now this thread motivated me to start the Diaochan Qubeley. There quite a bit of model that i plan to get like a psycho zaku, qubeley, quinn mantha.



>I'm buying an airbrush

<Heres some advice


<Here's some massive flaws, you did terribly as explained before hand


Go back to Reddit kid. You have no idea who is even responding to you and lashing out at everyone and any one because you got your shit called out. People tried to help you and you acted like every other tard getting into this hobby. All ego, no talent and nothing but a folder of reaction images

p.s. Nothing wrong with using spray cans. Some pros even use brush exclusively.

Diaochan is missing her robe of feather for now but here is the collection so far. (Unpainted and i suck with stickers bully me.)



not a bad little collection. Don't worry about stickers, they're not important. If you ever decide to paint you will want to take them off or they will fall of any way.

Focus on clean building when you're just starting, removing nubs, sanding things smooth. The basics you need to make a MG look nice is the foundations of Gunpla

>calling Sazabi a Gundam




Looks like silver gray, teal blue, black, medium gray, white, and metallic nickel.



Whats the difference?



Robots in Gundam are called Mobile Suits (or Mobile armour for inhuman shapes). Gundams are a sub section of Mobile suits. Sazabi is made by a faction who doesn't make Gundams.

In car terms, all robots are cars but the Sazabi is a Ford and a Gundam is a Porsche.



if it's so autistically important to refer to them all as mobile suits, then why is it called gunpla? why isn't it called mobile suitpla. gundam may be a specific term but it's also a colloquialism.


What's the point of painting a kit if it's molded in the correct colors?


File: b9dc944636f0a1f⋯.jpg (590.01 KB, 768x1024, 3:4, 1276599128722.jpg)


Gundam is the franchise. Pla comes from Plamo or Plastic model.


The plastic isn't 100% accurate and you have markings from building it. Model kits have to come in parts which will show where 2 parts join. As a modeller (not a snapfag) you use putty to fill those gaps which is a different colour. So you need to paint it even to get the basic show accurate model.

Beyond that, it's fun to do weathering and make it look more used and realistic.



is this a gundam?



No. Mobile armor Elemeth.



>The plastic isn't 100% accurate and you have markings from building it.

You mean gatemarks? In my experience, a layer of matt topcoat is enough to hide those.

>Model kits have to come in parts which will show where 2 parts join. As a modeller (not a snapfag) you use putty to fill those gaps which is a different colour.

Seamlines are a thing of the past especially with modern HGs.

>Beyond that, it's fun to do weathering and make it look more used and realistic.

Giant robots aren't realistic lmao.

Also, imagine ruining a $100 kit because you made a mistake while painting


File: 446cfd3533bd7b5⋯.jpg (458.79 KB, 1365x915, 91:61, 20190713_144927.jpg)

After the paint dries, the texture looks more smooth and consistent. I still don't see what's supposedly fundamentally wrong with using an airbrush but spray cans are fine, when it does the exact same thing as a spray can, which is to atomize paint.



spray paints can literally kill you if you're not wearing appropriate gear. They're incredibly toxic




What kit are you buidling? An Origin HG?



You're clinically retarded. The texture is still obvious. Stop posting until you learn to paint.



sazabi RG. the first one was a spare shield i had from an old kit just to get a hang of using the airbrush for the first time


>it's impossible to apply a clear coat that changes the final texture


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.


>If I add layers of clear paint over the base coat it makes it smoother.

No, no it doesn't. That's just adding more shit to the pile. Your stupidity is immense.



>if i add coats of one color of paint over a different color of plastic it makes it the new color

No, no it doesn't. That's just adding more shit to the pile. Your stupidity is immense



Yes i plan to paint them at some point.

I didn't thought about using sanding tools thanks for the advice.
