Lately i seem to hate polishing out my paintwork, and some bodies sit on my shelf for months before i'll sand and polish.
A mate hates fitting the glass to his kits as he sees to always gets glue on them.
do anyone else have these sort of i hate this part of building:D

Welcome to AF.


I don't really hate any parts of modeling. Sometimes when painting I need to take a break from it for a few days because its starts to feel a bit boring, but as soon as the painting is finished, I really enjoy putting the decals on and building the model. :)

I hate it when the kit needs filling to be done because of ejector mark, sink holes and fitting problems (this problem is usually with the old or reproduced kit...even some new kits...)

I hate making Black around the Window (not on the body, but on the window) I seem I'm not able to fit the Tamiya Mask for window.. So I made them without Mask and it's very hard...

Welcome to AF.The only thing I hate is when I spray the body and sometimes I find a hair to dirt embedded in the paint.

I hate pre-chromed parts that have mold lines on them or are attached to the tree in the wrong spot. I also hate when i try a body mod that i think i can do only to find out i cant after i chop up something.

Like so many ppl have said, painting the weather strips. I guess for my next project I'll use bare metal foil. That shouldn't allow the paint to bleed through.

Like 64 Chevy said I hate it when pre chromed parts come with too much tree holding them onto the frame and then you have a big bare plastic shape left in the neat chrome, also hate that the closest model shop from me now is 1 hour train trip away, last thing I hate is like Antonio, running out of supplies.

I just had a training session to teach a railway club to airbrush, First i broke the sightglass on my compresser then brought 2 cans of compressed air. Then it started to rain (which i'm not complaining about as were in drought times here) but the air cans kept on freezeing even in a cup of boilling water. So graet lesson that was.

I hate masking = very tedious. Also, when you are applying decals, and it goes wrong. Get it right and it can be the most rewarding part.

I hate Bare Metal foil. I've never been able to put it right and always end-up painting chrome with Humbrol 11. It has been shown to me so many times, and I never get it right... :bloated:

I love decalling! The more and complex, the better. :cool: I can spend hours on that!

The only thing about modeling I hate , is that I want to make too many models at a time, so I tend to rush things a bit.

And Off course, the slipping exacto knives... :D
