    Re: Constructing Your Waifu (Model Ships!)

    @AdmiralYamamoto Absolutely awesome. Thank you for sharing.

    Just to check, but did you assemble/paint everything yourself? I would love some pointers if you're willing to share.

    Re: Constructing Your Waifu (Model Ships!)

    So I also got a model of my first and favorite BB Nagato. It's a waterline model with all the extra goodies. Love all them goodies.

    However, I'm only experienced in putting together gundam models, master grade is the highest I've gone, and those were to say the least are all snap together and stickers. So I've not started on Nagato yet. I don't know which glue I should use to not damage her and what are good brands of paint to use.

    I also have a few of these mini model kits that are prepainted and just require you to glue them together. Anyone know some great glue and paint brand to use?

    @lanagant Just the mini model ones. The waterline one isn't.

    @Chanpuru oic. i used those thin cement glues for my models back in the days. it takes about 24 hours for them to dry which made my life easier since its so easy to mess up those tiny parts.

    @Hatsushimo Just now saw your reply, derp. Yes, all the parts are assembled and hand-painted, aside from the big Musashi hull which was spraypainted due to its size.
    I´m not the best painter in the world, by far, so closer inspection reveals some mistakes here and there.
    Besides, there´s far better models out there, such as the 1-100 scale model on the modelmaking forum i´m on:
    Musashi 1/100

    Preview pic of the finished ship looks fucking real:

    Re: Constructing Your Waifu (Model Ships!)

    Oh, hey, a model kit making thread! :D

    Was thinking of starting one when I manage to get my hands on a model kit... but unfortunately it's kinda hard to come by where I live.

    And it's also a bit expensive for me :P but I'll see if I can get one and post it here.... sometime... maybe in 2 years after I graduate...

    @AdmiralYamamoto That Musashi model is pure awsome. Well the building took 8 years, longer than the original.

    @Zoamelgustar The difference being that this one was made by ONE GUY in his free time, while the real one was made by hundreds of people working 10+ hours a day. :P
