  1. Yep I've got a silhouette portrait cutter, it's a great help with custom masks. Pre cut masks are really expensive for what they are, they add up really quickly.
  2. @Kol__, @Aerobert - Thanks chaps . It was a fun shell to paint. Think it'll look good on a chassis with gold wheels and shocks. It was inspired by the Eternals Ikaris' outfit and used mainly Green Stuff World Paints.
  3. Thanks Nicadraus . If I did one again I think some drop shadows on the main gold sections would make it a lot better, give it some depth. I've got the wing done now too but I've not even got a TT-02B for it to go on .
  4. Hi, I suspect something else it at play here with your MB. We've had loads of MBs fitted with braces and they fix the issue, as far as I'm aware this is the only report of them not stopping the clicking. Something else must be going on. I've got the most abused MB running a 5.5T brushless on 3S and the gearbox takes it, concrete, grass anything. This is my poor test mule and it's taken more abuse than any MB should be expected to take just to really give the braces and gearbox the hardest possible life.
  5. I use Design Spark, free from RS DesignSpark Mechanical | RS (rs-online.com) It's a slightly cutdown version of SpaceClaim:- Ansys SpaceClaim | 3D CAD Modeling Software These are not your traditional parametric CAD design software where you have a model creation tree history but more direct modelling software packages. Once you get the hang of them they are super flexible perfect for prototyping and 3D printing. I've been using design spark for years for home Spaceclaim at work. Screen grab of a 3d printed design I was messing with a while back.
  6. As others have said, general rule is go dark to light if you can. What is your other colour apart from metallic blue backed with silver? This is what I use; Masking tape for edges, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tamiya-Masking-Tape-Curves-87179/dp/B00VTDZ08E/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=tamiya+masking+tape+for+curves&qid=1672523855&sprefix=tamiya+masking+%2Caps%2C167&sr=8-6 General Masking tape, low tack for delicate surfaces, https://www.amazon.co.uk/FrogTape-Painters-Masking-Delicate-surface/dp/B006Y7F2P6/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=frog%2Btape&qid=1672524020&sprefix=frog%2B%2Caps%2C140&sr=8-6&th=1
  7. I got a Dancing Rider for Christmas so started with the painting the body. Went with a funky colour combo.
  8. I got started with the ProCat body. Went for Box Art + (box art but with some extra flourishes)
  9. Thanks , I'm trying to push my painting boundaries to up my skills and it was way more time consuming than I thought it was going to be. It was also the second attempt, the first I didn't like and got some bleeding so stripped it all back to nothing and started again.
