First of, some of the important tools used :
The cutter on the bottom has a thick, short blade which is very useful for cutting thick plastic, its better than the orange paper cutter I have next to the scissors. For people who like to trashbash and clobber common household items into their mad modelling fantasies, I could recommend the drill and hotgule gun enough!
Some of the items:
A cheap water bottle.
After hotgluing all the parts together...
Some cards and various junks like contact lens casing, etc are then PVA glued on the body of the ship.
1. When hotguling the parts together, drill a few holes on both sides so the hotglue will flow inside both parts and lock it so the hold is stronger.
2. Use some sandpaper to sand down the surface of the plastic so that paint will stick better before you prime it.
Now onwards to painting !!
Now whats a good name for the ship....
