How to make your own RUST for weathering scale models
 
07:54
There are aftermarket rust powders, pigments and paints out there to buy, but they are $$$ EXPENSIVE. Why not try making your own rust to use for weathering your scale models? It's easy, it's cheap as chips, and best of all, it gives you actual real rust you can apply to your models. You can't get more authentic than that! This stuff is great if you're new to weathering or rusting models and want to try techniques before you shell out big bucks on pricey paints and pigments. Plus it's just fun (and funky) to make. All you need is steel wool, vinegar, and patience. ******* CONNECT WITH ME ******* My blog: http://www.davesmodelworkshop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavesModelWorkshop/ Pinterest: https://au.pinterest.com/DavesModelWorks/ Music by www.bensound.com

How to make your own panel line scriber tool for $2

Top 5 weathering techniques for building scale models
 
22:35
This video is a collaboration with Panzermeister36, where we each present our Top 5 weathering techniques for building realistic scale models. It's mainly aimed at beginner armor builders, but the methods are versatile enough to work for tanks, planes, cars, dioramas and figures, and can be used by beginners or very experienced modellers. The techniques I cover are: 5. The Salt painting technique 4. Sponge chipping paint 3. Home made mud for dioramas 2. Using pigments for dust 1. Oil paint washes After you watch my video, have a look and see what Panzermeister36's interpretation of the Top 5 Weathering Techniques for Beginners are - you can view Panzermeister36's channel at: https://www.youtube.com/user/Panzermeister36 His Top 5 video is at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNcUJ0BACO4&feature=push-u&attr_tag=fE9iqqJDH1bgZh4R-6 ******* CONNECT WITH ME ******* My blog: http://www.davesmodelworkshop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavesModelWorkshop/ Pinterest: https://au.pinterest.com/DavesModelWorks/ Music by www.bensound.com

How to use a Wash to bring out detail on scale model figure uniforms
 
04:36
When painting scale model figures, a simple Wash can really make details pop. It's easier than trying to paint shadows by hand, and much faster. Once you do a final drybrushing of lighter highlight tones, your model figure will have much more depth and realism. Works with acrylic, enamel or oil paints. Perfect for resin figures, soldiers included in Tamiya plastic kits, specialised Dragon or MasterBox model figures - try it, what have you got to lose? :) My blog: www.davesmodelworkshop.com Connect with me on facebook: www.facebook.com/davesmodelworkshop

How to scratch build detailed seatbelts for scale model plane cockpits
 
14:03
This video shows you how to scratch build your own detailed pilot's harness or seatbelts for scale model aircraft cockpits. All you need is two dirt-cheap materials: thin wire and masking tape (any brand will do). Lots of older plane kits have no seatbelts, or crappy low-detail belts moulded on to the pilot's seat - with this technique you can make your own at NO COST and save on expensive photo etched seatbelts, the easy way to superdetail a fighter cockpit. That is a cheap model maker's dream, and the detail is great! ;) The model I am building is the ancient old Hasegawa 1/32 scale P-51D Mustang. ******* CONNECT WITH ME ******* My blog: http://www.davesmodelworkshop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavesModelWorkshop/ Pinterest: https://au.pinterest.com/DavesModelWorks/ Music by www.bensound.com

Painting scale models: Washes, Pin washes, Filters and Dot filters explained
 
13:46
There is some uncertainty out there when painting and weathering a scale model about WASHES and FILTERS. In this video I explain the differences and show how to use 4 types: Washes - 1:01 Pin Washes - 2:52 Filters - 5:12 Dot Filters - 8:36. These are great ways to ensure colour modulation and bring out detail on your scale model tanks, armor, planes, trains or cars. They are very simple, and give you new tools to work with when painting and weathering your plastic models. The main thing I would stress is if you are planning to use oils or enamels for your washes and filters, it is best to do this over an acrylic paint job (the thinners involved will destroy an enamel surface).

Chipping the paint of your scale models adds an incredible realism - it is one of my absolute favourite weathering techniques. In this video I methodically compare 3 chipping media: the HAIRSPRAY METHOD versus VALLEJO CHIPPING MEDIUM versus AK INTERACTIVE HEAVY CHIPPING FLUID. I give my recommendations of which gives the best results at the end - there are some definite winners and losers! ******* CONNECT WITH ME ******* My blog: http://www.davesmodelworkshop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavesModelWorkshop/ Pinterest: https://au.pinterest.com/DavesModelWorks/ Music by www.bensound.com

How to make rivets on a scale model - scratch build at no cost
 
06:36
This tutorial shows you how to make your own rivets on plastic scale model tanks, armor and aircraft. This technique is easy, incredibly low-cost, uses materials you already have, and gives a great result. Perfect for adding texture to plain or low-detail models. Best for 1/35 and 1/32 scales. Detail up armor plates, engines, aircraft aluminium skins or landing gear, any surface that needs more texture. It's an old trick, but it's a goodie. ******* CONNECT WITH ME ******* My blog: http://www.davesmodelworkshop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavesModelWorkshop/ Pinterest: https://au.pinterest.com/DavesModelWorks/ Music by www.bensound.com

How to apply oil paint dot filters over enamel paint - a scale model weathering tip
 
11:40
Most scale model makers think when weathering you can only apply an oil paint dot filter on top of an ACRYLIC painted surface. But you can just as easily apply oil paint weathering on top of ENAMEL paint, if you prepare your surface first. It's easy and effective, and most importantly, when you apply thinners to your oil dot filter it WON'T destroy the enamel painted surface you've painstakingly worked so hard on! This is most useful for weathering armor, but it can also be helpful for aircraft models and dioramas. Now you can add subtle rain streaks and grime onto your enamel painted surfaces safely. Wins all round people! :) ******* CONNECT WITH ME ******* My blog: http://www.davesmodelworkshop.com/ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/DavesModelWorkshop/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavesModelWorkshop/ Pinterest: https://au.pinterest.com/DavesModelWorks/ Music by www.bensound.com

How to use a scale model rivet making tool
 
06:57
I recently bought a Trumpeter rivet making tool. Here's how to use one to make convincing indented rivets on your scale model aircraft. Trumpeter calls it a "Hobby Rivet Maker" and as much as I'd love to say I have a cheap DIY way to make your own riveting tool, I don't! This only cost me $11, and it's pretty indespensable if you plan to make quality airplane models. ******* CONNECT WITH ME ******* My blog: http://www.davesmodelworkshop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavesModelWorkshop/ Pinterest: https://au.pinterest.com/DavesModelWorks/ Music by www.bensound.com
