I've seen a lot of poster's pictures of their works in progress or their workspaces and I often see the 28mm models attached to what looks like corks in order to hold them better when airbrushing or painting. Is this what they are? How do you mount them on the corks so they stay on? Does anyone use any other methods?
I borrowed an airbrush from a friends and attempted holding the models but got more paint on my hand than the model it seemed like. Any help is appreciated.
an old paint pot (as in the ones with the black lids) with alot of blue tack is what I usually use. I don't really mind - im happy to get the paint on my hands all the time
A large cork (champagne or something similar) a paperclip and some superglue are what I use.
I've superglued a straightend paperclip into the cork and then drill a very small hole (if at all) in the underside of the model or some part that eventually won't be seen (I usually use the sole of the feet) and superglue the model to the paperclip. I have found blue tack does not hold strongly enough in place, especially if you intend to put a brush anywhere near the model.
Hope that helps.
I use a plastic screw on bottle cap.
I glue my based models on with just some white glue.
I cut a small slit for the tabbed metal unbased models and sometimes a drop of superglue.
Lightly screw it on the bottle for a handle when spraying.
Use just the cap when brushing or cut the top of a bottle off for a slightly larger hand hold.
Best solution imho: a box of cheap surgical gloves. You only use one glove at a time, mutliple times so the box lasts forever.
And on the plus side, you can always earn an extra cent doing freelance prostate exams, if you're so inclined.
