New video: The 3 simplest ways to improve your scale modelling skills

I had a moment this week when I was sanding away at a poorly fitting join, and I thought just how much I don't enjoy sanding models. After a little more thought, I decided that sanding and cleaning my airbrush were my two least-favourite parts of the hobby. A little more thought again and I realised that the day I confronted these two least-favourite parts of building was actually a really powerful and simple way I improved my builds.

In light of this, my latest video discusses three really simple ways to improve your builds. These are low-hanging fruit - relatively obvious things, but nonetheless important ways to improve your modelling skills, and like the example above they are powerful and simple tools for improving your abilities, no matter if you are an absolute newbie or if you've been modelling for years.

I hope that the title of this video doesn't feel too "clickbait-y". I promise it's not meant to be!

Video is embedded below, but in case that doesn't work here is the link:

  1. 100%! and it can be costly if you cut corners and most of all YOU know what you skipped or f*** up. Which you will always look at it when you pick it up lol.

  2. I know! If I know it's dodgy in a certain spot, I'll never be able to look past that one niggling flaw...
