Well… not really, but it’s cool never the less. Time and time again you’ve all heard me go on about how I can’t free hand paint. It’s OK though, I’ve come to terms with it and I’m finding that it’s not a hindrance after all. This ‘folly’ so to speak, in my hobby abilities forces me to create ways of getting around it. So I suppose it’s not really a folly at all, depending on how you look at it.
This post coincides with the last one about painting squad markings on the Rhino’s hatch, but this time around, there will not be any painting. While I may not be the first person to think this up, I don’t recall ever seeing it before, so at least for the duration of writing this post, I’ll consider it my own… stroke of madness.
I took a sheet of 0.8mm plastic card and traced the Rhino hatch out on the plastic card with a pencil.
I then measured out an arrow that would fit and look the way I wanted it to and cut the pieces out.
I roughed up the edges a bit because a little damage makes it look better.
Lastly I have the finished product and in my opinion, looking damn good. I like the raised effect of the plastic card. This will most certainly be repeated on the other rhino, its hatch is already submersed in Simple Green. It’s mostly simple and easy to accomplish and repeat… I say it’s a WIN.
That’s all for now. Thanks again for stopping by. Cheers!
