thanks again dude. by far the most details(maybe parts) i have ever done on a kit. pretty crazy lol. and i even lost a few(mirrors,windshield wipers) because parts dropped on floor or just vanished lol.
thanks dude, i had a ton of fun on this one, lol way to long to come up with a name, and was kinda scared to hand paint it. ohhh i know, dont know how long the foil will last..know my daughter is gonna want to have me open it up like a 1000+ times.
I would have gone with tissue paper and diluted white glue for the tarp. The foil would have been used to mask over the area, then soak the paper in the glue, cover the area and let it set. I've had great results replicating tarps, flags and anything else that was suppose to be of some kind of material or fabric. I once fashioned a poncho out of the stuff on a 1/35th scale figure, it looked really cool when it dried and was painted with a high gloss finish, to have it look wet.
ahhhh cool! when i had done my research for this thing i saw 50/50 some did the foil others did the paper approach. i decided on the easier foil, but now that you have described the process i might have to give it a go in the future. thanks for the tip and knowledge dude!
Your welcome. Using foil is much easier, but I feel that the results are far better using glue and thin paper. The kind of white paper found in a shirt gift box or some other garment gift box. This is what I would use. Most of the time it's tossed in the trash anyway.
