There are a million 'How-To' modeling videos on the web but the work of tagamo is on a whole different level. This guy covers every single aspect of building a model kit over multi-part videos that are expertly filmed and narrated. I've watched the following builds...
AT-AT Bandai 1/144 scale build
BATGIRL Moebius 1/5 Scale Build
K2-SO Bandai 1/12 Scale Build
BATMAN Moebius 1:8 scale build
CREATURE from the BLACK LAGOON Moebius

Welcome to issue 46 of Figure Painter Magazine.
Number 46 is rather a large issue, packed with lots of miniature reviews and several closer looks at other stuff a mini painter should have.
We also have three stunning tutorials for you this issue. Marko Paunović continues his massive diorama build of his post-apoc garage scene. Also, starting this month is another multi issue diorama build by Conrad Mynett who explains all about how he made his Cyclops Diorama. I did say three, right? Well, the third is a real stunner from Spanish painter Ángel Verdejo Olmeda who shows us how he created his diorama ‘Into the Woods’.
Also in this issue, we have event reports from the Athens Model Show and this year’s FigureWorld. Also, we have an interesting look at how to prepare for painting competitions from U.S. based painter John Margiotta.
Kicking this issue off is what could be the best Insight interview we’ve ever published. Terry Cowell spoke at length to Dmitry Fesechko on his thoughts on the miniature hobby and as an artist. It really is an inspiring piece. Anyway, we hope you like it and please, feel free to let us know your thoughts and if you have any ideas on how we can improve.
