At the May 2018 IPMS Toronto meeting, member John Maher gave a fantastic presentation about how he used aircraft modelling techniques when he branched out to building armour models.
As usual, Robert Wlodarek was present to record the seminar and we’re happy to show it to you here.
In today’s video, Dave Forest and Dave Browne discuss some of the techniques they use when composing their dioramas. These techniques aren’t limited to armour – there’s something here for everyone to learn from. VIdeo is courtesy of Robert Wlodarek.
Set some time aside this weekend as you’ll want to be sure to watch every part of this fascinating series of how to videos by Dave Browne as he take us through the techniques that he uses for modelling groundwork. Video is courtesy of Robert Wlodarek.
In his last presentation, IPMS Toronto member John Maher talked about applying armour techniques to aircraft. If you missed it, you can refresh your memory with another look at his seminar here.
In this upcoming session, John will talk about applying aircraft techniques to armour. He will present how he used aircraft building techniques to assemble the stowage on this Korean War Pershing. He’ll also review the painting and weathering techniques employed to create the finish on this model.
In the spring of 2017 we had the pleasure of having famed modeller Mike Rinaldi visit the Toronto area and conduct a number of seminars at Hornet Hobbies covering his hairspray and oil painting techniques. IPMS Toronto member Robert Wlodarek joined the seminars and was able to capture these fantastic videos.
Our holiday gift to you is a series of 4 videos presented by Dave Browne, owner of Hornet Hobbies, who will walk us through the construction, finishing, and weathering of the Tamiya Matilda Mk. III/IV model. Video is courtesy of Robert Wlodarek.
