EBay Wonder Buy Restoration Blog

Permanent Linkby Galador on Thu Feb 09, 2012 8:53 pm

Ok, seeing as how everyone wanted to see the progress of my Ebay restoration, I figured I would try my hand at this Blogging thing and make one out of it. Lets start with the original photos:

Ok, so they have now sat in the solution of Simple Green for over 24 hours, and I am starting to scrub some, so when I am done for the day scrubbing, I will take some photos and add them up on here! I will continue to add on to this as I make changes and improvements to everything I got, so hope everyone enjoys it!

Whole lot is still soaking right now, I was gone all weekend for my youngest nephew's first birthday, so going to start scrubbing tomorrow, now that they have had a nice long bath!

What I have found to be great about simple green is that you can leave plastic models soaking in there for a long period of time without the plastic models being ruined.

Ok!!! So the Ebay buy is coming along, almost all of the army has been stripped, scrubbed and repainted... just a few things left to do and then we will be done with the easy part!! Here are a few pictures to bring everyone up to speed on them, for those that are keeping track of my progress!! (amazing how well starting this blog is actually making me feel like I have to push on, cause I dont want it to sit forever and have no updates!)

As you can see, the Dias of Destruction has been masked off to go first, and everything that you see masked will eventually end up being scab red, but first we will shoot down a layer of Necron Abyss on everything else to get things going!!

They look a sight better than they did when they first arrived a=on your doorstep!
I thought the masking was a basecoat!
Looking forward to seeing the dias in all its glory!

OK, so a few updates!!! I have been having a few difficult situations lately, so havent made as much progress on the Wonder Buy as I would like but it is slowly coming along and thought Iwouls share some of the progress, just so this blog doesnt sit here and stagnate too much!!! I have airbrushed the Ravager, the Dias of Destruction, and the other Raider with their Necron Abyss, along with 8 of the 11 jetbikes. I have hit the Archon with his Nec Abyss coat and started on his Scab Red, as well as putting the Scab Red first coat on the Incubi Masters capes from the Dias. Am hoping to finish up the jetbikes that I havent hit with NEcron today, and also start with the Talos. Hope everyone likes the progress, and that I am writing enough information, as this is the first blog I have ever done, so anyone out there with blogging experience, feel free to tell me how I could make this better!!

Hello, all you AoSers out there. Just wanted to give a little update, as I know I have been absent from here for quite a bit now. Been having quite a few issues in my life lately, and been feeling a bit down. Havent painted anything almost since my last update to this blog, due to trying to find a new home for my family, trying to make sure my Army career continues, or at least get my injuries taken care of for when I get medically discharged out of the military. It has been having quite an effect on me, and all my thanks go to my family and to Time and his wife, who have been there for me throughout this time with many words of encouragement and support.

But enough of the sad part, on to the good part!!! I have finally found a house that both me and the wifey are happy with, and we have put in an offer that has been accepted, so we will very shortly have a new home!!! My Medical Board is going well and moving along(albeit slowly, as the Army loves to take its time!) so I have been cheering up a bit lately and have been getting back to my old, mischievous self, and have finally once again gotten the urge to paint!!! I am about to continue working on the EBay wonder buy, going from the Necron Abyss to the Scab Red setups, and will hopefully have a few pics to post up tomorrow!!!

Thank you to all of you who keep looking here to see the progress, and special thanks to time for being there when I needed him the most!!! Check back over the next few days for updates!

Good to hear things are working out for you mate. Glad there's light at the end of the tunnel. Now - will wifey give you time to paint models? Could well be decorating of a larger style she'll be thinking.... :D

I still have a month before we close on the house and move in.... so I will just have to work fast I guess.... Plus in the new house I have a 500 sq ft attic that I am going to turn into my 40K den/game room/ paint room, with her blessing of all things!!!
