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...

okumarts: I took a year 'off' of some sites and social media but also focused on other things. It really didn't seem to make a difference so my new years resolution is to re-engage and enjoy it more.

Vermin King: There evidently was a feasibility study about a decade ago about a water pipeline from the Great Lakes to the Southwest states. I believe that water would have been even more expensive than bottled water

Vermin King: At 7AM we were at +3, got up to 17. Far better than the last two days

Vermin King: Well, squirmydad, is it colder in KC than where you are? -5F here. We have already hit our high for the day at midnight

Vermin King: The smaller images on PostImage are in fact thumbnails. Click on the thumbnail and it opens a new tab with the full image. Right click on the full image and you can get the Copy Image Link on the drop down. Use that to post a full image

Dave: Hey there! I've used both. Posting off-site images results in broken images (I'm guessing because they aren't from a secure site, which is fine). Using the PostImage function, it reduces images to thumbnail size (regardless of what I ask for).

Vermin King: @dave, Are you uploading images with PostImage or linking to images elsewhere on the internet?
Dec 19, 2022 4:26:41 GMT -9
Dave: I'm trying to post images, but it seems I can only post broken images or teeny tiny images. Help?

Vermin King: gothique, did you look through what I posted on Facebook and in the message? Anyone else find anything to help?

Vermin King: Well, as one who has been contributing to the silence, I hope to do better this next year

Vermin King: Oo, gothique, that is a tall ask, which I wish wasn't. Finding almost anything beyond Taj Mahal is darn near impossible
