Two posts in one day!!!
Ok, so here is how I did it…
I firstly cut out the stencil so it would fit on the model in a position that I was happy with
I then removed the backing paper being careful not to remove the clear plastic cover and firmly applied the back of the stencil to the Landraider (the bit closest to the weapon mount)
I then hit the stencil with this heat gun, to help it better conform to the models contours
As you can see, the stencil became quite soft and pliable after it was warmed up a bit.
After getting the basic shape pressed into the stencil, I then carefully removed the clear plastic from the top of the stencil… I then warmed up the vinyl once again, and used a blunt pointed object to help the stencil conform to the contours of the Landraider.
I then masked it up a bit more to stop overspray getting on the tank
And this is the final result! Really pleased with the outcome.
I then added a few more decals to the model to finish it off. I’ll probably do some more work on this tomorrow. I’m really motivated to see this Landraider painted. I think its going to look fantastic.
Thanks for looking
