    suggestion to make this forum better

    hi admins,

    is it possible to make the tutorials more user friendly...

    as you all pros know it really take time to produce fine works n I believe this forum contains alot of tutorials, tips and tricks to help....
    but it takes time to search and if someone could make a sticky or link up a string of tutorials from start to end for example like a content page of a book.
    removing nubs, sanding, masking, painting, fixing n clementing, panel lining then finally finish coat, it would b very nice for beginners to help save some time on searching n more time on building.
    my order shd b wrong and I think I might left out a few steps.... just a suggestion from a newbie... hope u guys dun get me wrong I m not teaching u guy how to run the forum dun get offended....

    maybe we can compile all the threads into 1-2 threads with indexes at the first post? for example, this is what I was thinking about :

    thread : basic tutorials for straight build
    index : nub cleaning, applying dry transfer and water slides, panel lining, topcoating, etc.

    thread : basic tutorials for spray painting
    index : recommended brand of spray paints, using primer, primer sanding, spraying methods, curing time, chrome or high gloss finishes, etc.

    thread : basic tutorials for airbrush painting
    index : recommended brand of airbrushes, how to clean, etc.

    thread : basic tutorials for simple mods
    index : scribing panel lines, cutting and trimming parts, reshaping pieces with epoxy putty, using third party metal parts, adding pla-plates, etc.

    thread : common errors often made
    index : topcoat frosting, paint layers reacting with each other, orange peeling effect on paint, masking errors, etc.

    of course we can add more advanced tutorials too, like tutorials for scratch building parts, tutorials for working with resin kits, tutorials for making diorama, etc.. then the admins/mods will periodically update the thread whenever some members add new info or question. I'd be more than glad to contribute. it might seem tedious, but should be manageable. Smile
