Forgeworld Resin Venerable Dreadnought

This was one long, interesting, soul-eating, miniature to paint up. Not to mention the fact that Tamiya Super Fine Primer stinks BADLY. Resin can be a pain most times, and this project was no exception to that rule.

 

He's a bit clean for warfare in the year 40,000 however I did like how he came out.

You had a problem with Tamiya primer? I know there is a Tamiya Spray Primer and a Tamiya Fine Spray Primer, is there a Super Fine as well? I'm a little surprised as Tamiya Fine Spray has been one of the best primers I've ever used. Don't you normally airbrush your primer coats?

 

As for the Dreadnaught, that thing is freaking awesome. I love the eye on the right shoulder. That NMM gold is the perfect shade for that color scheme. I'm very envious of whoever get to keep that beauty. You really need to stop improving your painting skill while some us make an attempt to catch up. ::P:

In an attempt NOT to run enamels thru my airbrush, and to seal the resin, I was forced to use the Tamiya. I do like the Tamiya more than Krylon sandable when it comes to resin kits, but that's just a personal preference.

 

However, when I said "stinks" I meant that literally. The SMELL even with my respirator and ventilation was staggering. :blink: I didn't mean "stinks" as in "is not a good product", sorry about the confusion.

 

Truthfully, I would rather shoot Mr. Surfacer 1000 (or 500) with my airbrush to seal resin kits, but I cannot due to it being a lacquer based product.

What is Mr. Surfacer? What's the difference between 500 and 1000?

I guess there is some properties that differ between the two in terms of finish... I know a few modelers that are just fine with 500, and then there are some who absolutely love 1000. Then there are those that swear by Krylon Sandable Primer. There's also Gunze Mr. Resin Primer, which is a liquid grey primer. However in using the Gunze's I'm told you need to use Mr. Retarder to slow down the curing process or you can end up with serious orange peel effect, or even have it dry up in your airbrush!

 

All in all, I think it is like anything else, everyone has their favorites, and pretty much sticks with them... ^_^
