Hi there everyone
I've been lurking around this forum for ages and finally signed up a few days ago. Really jealous of the people here who are able to make sure amazing things. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask for advice, so i'm sorry if i'm posting in the wrong place.
Some years ago i picked up, what i think is a Starland Tricorder IV, it's a pretty plain looking thing, but it's been chipped and lost it's decels. As i only picked it up for a few pounds, i thought i'd us this as my first step in to learning how to paint and finish models. If i do this well, i plan on buying a Nemesis phaser and trying my hand at that.
I paint warhammer models all the time and used some of the green putty filler i have, to repair some of the chipped edges on the prop. It will need sanding. And i was wonder what advice people could give me in sanding and painting oh and masking..For instance i tried painting this thing using a brush, with limited success. I would get rid of brush strokes, do you guys airbrush or use a spray can? I know some people use car paints.
Lots of questions, thanks for your time
