Stencils!

Just a really quick post.  I picked this up today from Maybe Jane.

Its a stencil that I’ve had made because I want to add the chapter badge to the side of Tyberous’s Landraider.  In order to do that, I couldn’t use a decal, as the ones on the sheet from FW are not large enough.

This is roughly where I am going to place it on the side of the hull.  I’m really looking forward to see how this will turn out.

I’ve used Maybe Jane to make me stencils before that I’ve mentioned in a previous posts.  Here are some pictures to refresh your memory.  The whole process was really quick, I just emailed Tegan the picture of what I wanted a stencil made of and the quantity. It was ready really quickly and inexpensively, very professional, she’s very friendly, helpful and knows her stuff.  Check out her FB page

I am really pleased with these stencils they are going to add a lot of interest to the Landraider.  I’m hoping that I’ll be able to finish up the prep stage by the weekend and get the painting started.

Thanks for looking

Cheers, John

    what material are the stencils? Are they vinyl or removabel vinyl? If so.. do you varnish the area before aply the stencil?

      Hey Alejan, thanks for continuing to come and check out my progress. The stencils are made of removable vinyl, and yes, I do varnish before I apply them (better bond) I also use a heat gun on the lowest setting to soften the stencil so that it conforms to the contours of the model better.
