1:200 AMT Man In Space (on steroids!)

Recommended Posts

A good open source (free) tool is Inkscape. While I've done a few decals, I mostly use Inkscape to cut masks and also sheet parts on a Silhouette Portrait cutter.  The sheet parts for the Mark 21-1 mounts on the LCM in my current signature were designed in Inkscape and scored on the cutter. A little work with a sharp knife freed the parts.

I thought PSP vanished. Will look into it too. Cheers

Well it's not like Corel hasn't tried to kill it.  Some of the last few releases have had a few bugs that they didn't fix, but, guess what, they are fixed in the next release that you can pay the upgrade fee so you can get the fixes. 🙄

 

I had to drop back to X9 for a while because 2018 was so crappy.  It looks like 2019 is better, I haven't found any killer bugs yet.

You don't have to rasterise all drawing in PS. So far so good

Time to strip the paint and start over AGAIN. Since the Rustoleum 2x is an enamel-based paint, I chose to soak the booster in some household paint thinner I had in my garage. This turned out to be a big mistake! When I came down the next morning to see if the paint had been stripped off, I found a white puddle of liquid plastic. The model had been completely melted down by the harsh paint thinner! 🤧 Frustrated, I decided to move on to the Titan and put off building a new Atlas until later.

Hey there, just came across this thread and am reading from the beginning.

For future reference, there are a couple plastic-safe paint removers available in the model railroad world, I guess availability of such things may depend on one's country of residence, but here in the US one I've been using for decades is,
