Hey guys finally onto a build tutorial video series. Pretty basic stuff, but if you're new to building 3D kits you may find these helpful. These videos will focus on the SMG kit, but as I point out, the same principles will apply to any of our 3D printed kits.

TMAX PROPS - Introduction
First up is a bit about me, my thoughts on build threads and some info on the kit itself.



Part 1: Prep Work
In this vid we will address kit assembly and surface preparation.



Part 2: Paint and Weathering
Coming soon

Looks great! I’m holding off on the weathering of my kit until I can slap some decals on it, so it’s great to see progress.

Great job on the tutorial videos, your sanding technique looks a lot better than mine. I wasn't aware of aerosol filler primers, ive been using just an acrylic etch primer and a ton of spot putty, looking forward to the next one!

Thanks mate. Yes, filler/primer will be your new best friend! The difference from standard primer is quite significant. I tried standard primer after using filler/primer and I was shocked at how thin the standard primer was. I use still putty as well on the ares that need it, but most the print lines are gone using the technique shown in the vid.

SMG graphics are finished! Working on the AR vinyls now.
