Believe it or not but model building is not my primary work, I also have a day job that demands quite a lot of time and concentration in order to stay current with certain rules and procedures.
Over the past two moths and until November 24th I'll be doing some training for work which will consume most of my attention.
I've managed to slowly chip away at the next video and it's nearing completion, it's an updated version of building a DIY static grass applicator for model scenery construction.
The updated version includes a number of features that are far superior to the previous model.
Some of the features include:
SMALL SQUARE HAY BALES
Building simple yet effective hay bales is much easier than it appears! They look fantastic and bring the scene to life.
The secret is static grass but not your regular sized static grass... For these bales in HO scale I had to track down a very short static grass! 1mm grass to be exact. Luckily there is a hobby manufacturer that sells just the right type of grass, they are War World Scenics.
It's possible to carefully dice up some twine to use as the hay fibers however using already made static grass makes the job much easier and faster!
PHOTO ETCHING AT HOME - PROFESSIONAL TOOLS FOR MODELLERS
This is a detailed tutorial on the process of photo etching your won brass details at home. Finding and purchasing photo etched parts from the hobby shop can be very expensive and the available parts are often very limited.
By etching your own parts at home you can design them to perfectly fit with your needs and after etching 5 or 6 sets of parts you'll have saved yourself a fair bit of money.
If what you want to see is not on the list you can type it in the suggestion box, if it's something I'm capable of I'll include it in a future tutorial, I'm no expert but I'll sure try my best to get the information you need.
