You can use water, I used a liquid I got from a art supply store, can't recall it's name at the moment but it thinned the paint but didn't effect the colour and I can't see brushstrokes on mine but again I only did it on the windows really. Any other thinned paint I used was used for weathering and was put on via drybrushing so brushstrokes aren't really an issue

Oooooh burn.

Seriously though, If the boil and pop method doesn't work, i suspect it would be a torso crack job (my guide on that should still be around here somewhere).

Have you tried using a tiny guillotine?

To anyone who has ever made Hartnell style roundels, I did the conversion of the actual measurements (supposedly the 5.5 inch range is 1/13th scale) and that comes out with a roundel diameter of nearly 2 inches, which seems excessive. Anyone got any guidance for this?

In my experience it's more complicated than just that. I've always had to trim the peg a little. But others may have had better luck.

What 12th Doctor customs can be made?

Postby Matt71young » Sat Jun 30, 2018 9:26 am

Hello. With the two 5.5 12th Doctor figures from Series 9 what customs can be made that relate to stories from Series 9 and 10? For starters what stories are those figures from? I haven't done a custom before and am seeking some information first. I know Face the Raven and Heeaven Sent and Hell Bent are out as that outfit with the red coat doesn't feature a hoodie of any colour. Many thanks in advance for any info. Cheers.

I believe those were based on his looks from The Magician's Apprentice/The Witch's Familiar for the white shirt and blue hoody figure and Under The Lake/Before The Flood for the green hoody one. Hope that helps a bit.
