    I finally have time to finish this monster of a case so lets get to it!

    Plenty of details need to be added to the side panels, so I began filling in the sparse areas with some Plastruct architectural pieces and some parts from my scrap bin. I also have a chance now to try out the new Iwata Eclipse airbrush I bought last week. Should be a decent upgrade to the Passche workhorse I have been using for years.

    If any of you out there want to see some airbrushing action, I can shoot some video--Let me know.

    Small (1/4" NPT) copper elbow was used here:

    This area will take lots of hand painting and airbrushing as you can see. The magic is in the details:

    I see 2/3rds of a rear axle, a valve cover and some manifolds in your close-up of the valve area. I love the creative kit-bashing. I'm looking forward to this final stretch of the build. Mod on.

    Oh, and I would be very interested to see your airbrushing technique.

    Part 3 : Return of the Mod God

    The concluding part of the Doom 3 Mod Trilogy

    Just when you thought the Doom 3 mod was forgotten....its back, with a vengance.

    Top Marks for the work so far, but its nice to see you finish this beast of a mod. Keep up the very good work.

    And Yes, it would be very nice to see you airbrushing.
    I've been meaning to get an airbrush and to see a Master ( )at work, just might do the trick.

    Was there enough flattery in the previous post to warrant the airbrushing video??

    If not I'm sure we can round up a bit more, given all the prolific posters and Crimson Sky devotees (no names, but we all know who you are) on this site

    Adding just the right amount of detail is really important when scratchbuilding and kitbashing on a project like this. It's easy to add too much detail, creating a confusing pallet of shapes that simply adds confusion to the overall look. Picking the right parts for kitbashing comes from lots of trial, error and experience, and literally hundreds of rejected parts and configurations pile up before I commit to gluing them on. Even then I may rip pieces off if it doesn't seem to fit later on as the work progresses.

    Tamiya models are among the very best kits you can buy. The detail is amazing, and the quality of their molds are unsurpassed for producing clean, crisp injection molded parts. Although pricey, these kits have been used for kitbashing by master model makers for years--even back to the first Star Wars. If you come across any production shots of the ILM (Industrial Light & Magic)model shop, you'll be sure to find dozens of boxes of Tamiya military kits in the background.
