As was mentioned, the issue of cost is rather important at the moment. What with saving for a wedding, most of the income I would have been able to spend is being saved. Why I mention this is, how can I develop projects at low cost.
As we can see, a grotesque paintjob. Can't really remember why this went so tits-up but I'm looking at the base colour and wondering... Why?...
This was a £29 model (IIRC?) when I bought it, and it is a definite want in any krieg army I might (or might not do :p) so recovery job...
|Dettol 75cl; £3.50 tesco|
- Dettol stinks.
- Keep the tub and item in a sink with something up the wall behind, as you will be flicking a mixture of semi-dissolved paint and dettol in a radius of around a metre around you.
- Do not allow water to get into the mixture whilst you are scrubbing. Scrub item, rinse in the dettol tub then remove to a towel to drip dry before washing in hot soapy water.
- The item will be quite sticky, I can't work out what it is, but its a grease-like emulsion of paint and dry dettol which is not suitable to work on at all.
- To remove this, the item will require a good wash in white spirit before you can think about painting. I washed in white spirit then again in hot soapy water before drying and readying for priming.
- It still stinks of dettol.
|The result; the paint pretty much all gone from the flat surfaces of the model.|
|Gaps filled. Just needs sanding.|
|Added some mixed grade rubble and slate bits using white glue. Needs a watered down white glue layer over the top then we can prime.|
How will we paint this model?
This arrived last week...
And finally... Thought I'd show this, two 38oz rump steaks I cooked for a Man V Food competition at work.
