The 2013 Jerseyfest Academy features an all day seminar called “Advanced Sci-Fi Vehicle Model Making” from 9:00AM to 5:00PM on Friday, September 13th. The cost is only $60. The event is being held the day before the weekend long vendor show. Experts will demonstrate advanced techniques and methods for building, painting and customizing resin and plastic Sci-Fi vehicle and mecha model kits, such as spaceships from Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, etc., and Maschinen Krieger/Ma.K (aka SF3D) kits.
Numerous topics will be presented in a series of professional demonstrations or slideshows in a relaxed setting that allows you to sit back and enjoy the experience and knowledge gained. Topics to be covered include:
Painting and weathering mecha and spaceships. Includes demos of advanced lacquer “hand painting” techniques using Japanese methods and aesthetics. (Kevin Derken)
Techniques for resin model building, and making the most out of your kit stash (Michael Salzo).
Implementing lighting kits in your models (Jason Eaton).
