Hi guys,

I just finished this last night.

Image

This was printed on Epson glossy photo paper. I like it because the colors are saturated and you don't see the grain of the paper. It also gives the model an appearance similar to a tin lithograph.

The side machine gun mantlet was carved from PVC foam and the gun fabricated from brass tubing. The 75mm gun mantlet is made from a plastic bead I got from an old fake pearl necklace.

Very nice build HiRisque. 8)
Really like the attention to detail,,,
and your craftsmanship.
Looking forward to seeing more of your models.
What glue do you like to use for glossy paper.
I use Aileens tacky glue for everything, even glossy.
So far it has worked out well.

It depends on the size of the part.

Smaller stuff I use Elmer's Craft Bond Tacky Glue.

On larger glue areas I use regular Elmer's because I can brush it on faster.

I'm always amazed at how fast these bond if pressure is applied.

musicman, by the way thanks for the kind words.

I found I was mistaken about what paper I used. It was Office Max glossy-everyday photopaper. If you buy the 100 sheet box it's about 25 cents a sheet with the tax. It works excellent with white glue.

Epson ultra premium glossy photo paper on the other hand is NOT white glue friendly as the surface is so closed it won't absorb the glue. Crazy glue will work though. I don't like using that stuff if I don't have to. I've glued myself together a few times, or to the darn part.
