    Not Gunpla, and not even plastic, but I'm putting it in here anyway because a few folks asked about it.

    Metal Earth Boeing Starliner. Curving the nose cap was aggravating, but overall, I am pleased with the result.

    Re: Plamobot's build thread (with occasional WIP)

    You've got far more patience than I, my friend. I'd have almost certainly lost my cool trying to get it just right and gone full Shinn Asuka on the damn thing in a fit of rage.

    In any case, as long as you're pleased with the end result, that's all that matters.
    Sieg Zeon!

    Did you try using a template for the curve? I have used marbles and other small round objects to get curves with Photo etch stuff.

    This one was actually much easier than I anticipated. You'd have no problems.

    Yep, I had a marker with a perfect domed end cap, but it was still difficult. The bottom edges were the tough part, but I got them to nestle properly inside the upper fuselage, so it's all good!

    Re: Plamobot's build thread (with occasional WIP)

    I was talking about the curving the nose cap part. Not getting it curved into perfect alignment would drive me absolutely nuts with frustration. Trying to get waterslides perfectly aligned on a curved surface is aggravating enough for me. Again, I'm not exactly the most patient or delicate person in the world, hence my tip of the hat to you and your efforts. Imperfect as the curving/alignment for your nose cap may be, it's still a helluva lot better than it would have been if I had attempted doing something similar. Again, patience is not my strong suit, nor is being delicate, so, again, props for what you did manage to do with the nose cap, my friend. Should go without saying, but the rest of the kit looks really sharp.

    Re: Plamobot's build thread (with occasional WIP)

    I feel your pain. Waterslides on curves always drives me batty, even when I know I did it right with Mr. Setter and Softer. I can't relax until I've seen them dried and set properly. The aggravation of waiting.
