I have a question for you fine folks on the forums. Not really a miniatures related question, but one for a hobby that has a decent amount of overlap - model painting.

 

Does anyone have a good book or video they can recommend on modeling realistic battle damage on tanks? I've got my Gundam models, which usually I just assemble and stuff on a shelf, but now I want to take a couple and rough them up a bit. Since they're supposed to be essentially walking tanks, and many of my models are original series models that still use kinetic weapons, I figure that tank damage makes for a good starting point. Penetrating hits are relatively easy. You just take a soldering iron or hot nail and press it into the plastic a bit, or even just drill a hole through for certain really clean hits I've seen, but I would really love to know how to do the kind of deformations that would be left by stuff like glancing blows and non-penetrating shots.

PM me your address, I have a book that should help!

Fair winds and a following sea, my friend.

 

Thank you Doug. Being able to check in on this forum fairly frequently is one of the things that will keep me in good spirits.

YouTube has a number of channels on this kind of topic, but I'll suggest checking out Aaron Lovejoy's tank tutorials on Miniature Monthly as a good place to start, at least for weathering.

You can also check out Adam Wilder (Adam's Armour books, Wilder Weathering products) or Michael Rinaldi (Tank Art books).

O great big truck idling outside our house, PLEASE go away so I can start recording this video.

 

(It's nice that the space abandoned when the supermarket chain collapsed last year is now occupied again, but O man, delivery trucks amirite?)

 

Invest in some bright orange cones...

Never has my quiet little corner of the neighborhood felt so noisy.

 

It's amazing how much noise can have a negative impact on quality of life.

Life hits pretty hard sometimes. I've got a second job now, and I'm pulling a 14 hour day today on zero sleep last night due to anxiety. Haven't been able to TOUCH my Youtube channel in a few days, and the lack of movement on that front isn't helping.

 

It's amazing how much anxiety can derail basic human functioning.  I hope you feel better soon.  

 

EDIT: And wow, I'm not super articulate this morning.  Maybe because we're all melting down here.

Best of luck!  I mean, I know the guy's got a job to do, but somehow they always pick the worst spots to wait for their delivery time.....

 

in other news, yay new video!

Why do I want my toaster telling every Bulgarian hacker living in his Mum’s basement how done I like my toast?

 

That's the point of the tinfoil hat on the toaster. At the least it will significantly attenuate the WiFi signal. And if you ground it, it will act as a Faraday cage.

 

Not so crazy now, hmmmm

I guess I asked my question backwards.  :huh:

 

No, no, no, no, to me the crazy part is that some YUTZ thought I might want my toaster, microwave, and fridge to conspire together to report in to ...somewhere... that I have toasted a bagel and used up  the last of my cream cheese. 

 

And this knuckles-dragging-on-the-ground YUTZ authorized internet enabled toasters to be manufactured.

More seriously...

 

I wonder what it takes to get a no idling sign put up? 

 

There are almost twenty designs !!

 

That spot might already be a No Idling zone.
