I am relatively new to the Hobbie, I once ambiciously bought some WWG stuff and never did anything with it(titan). Now I came back and found my way here over D. Okums Awsome paper minis. I am preparing for some new sci-fi Rpg sessions.
After getting reinterested by the Ebbleawesomeness, I built the Landing platform, the Utility shuttle and now...the prowler.
BOY THOSE WHEELS! I have some problems with aligning them and getting them look good. (By the way I have to approve my skills anyway).
Any tips on those? For generell tips in clean glueing and such I will search my way through the forum before asking.

On aligning wheels, I play around with putting a support under the model, first, then shim it to the appropriate height. Then when I glue the wheels on, they are all level. I always put my glue on a piece of scrap and apply with a toothpick. I hit my models lightly with Krylon Clear before I score or cut. This helps protect the textures, but when I get glue in the wrong place, it is easier to clean up without damaging the model.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
And edge before assembly. For things like wheels, barrel tops etc, I like to color in the inside face (at least around the edges) some reasonable color to make it a *little* less obvious when it doesn't come out like a perfect circle...

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
