Hi Guys

Just finished painting up 1 of my new kit designs. Think it came out alright.

These look great!

I have one question - is that snow or scratch marks on the top? I only ask because at the moment it seems hard to tell what you were going for. If it was scratch marks, I think it might be best to follow the lines of the raised areas, like along the ridges of the lines in each square. If its supposed to be some environmental effect (like snow), I'd maybe make it more apparent thats what it is by doing more with it.

All in all though, really really good job here.

Nice job, what kit is that or did you make it? Haven't seen it before.

Thanks for the feedback.

It is supposed to be scratches on the metal surface due to wear and tear. I used the sponge technique, but you have a point, perhaps finding the edges of the flooring would have been more effective

The kit is one of my designs.

That's a very simple, old-school building, and I mean that in the absolute best way. It reminds me a lot of the terrain in the 2nd/3rd ed 40k rulebooks. I just checked your site, and the price isn't too shabby either. What material is it made from, resin?

Lol, yes, you got me. The design is very old school. it was inspred by a picture in a very very old White Dwarf mag that I have from the Rouge Trader days. You will notice too that that Adeptus Judges figures are from the early 90's.

The models are made from various materials. The areas that require greater detail such as the flooring and the weapon are made from a very dense plastic that has a similar composition to opaque perspex. Other materials that make up this kit include mdf and compressed board. It would be great if the whole kit were made from the same plastic. But then price becomes an issue, not to mention shipping with the weight of the plastic as it really is dense. I have some very large designs I have begun working on, some city blocks I'm very excited about, and being able to ship these items at a decent weight is very important.

Thanks for the interest

Diggin it. I like that models can interact with it.
