Introducing the SMS Challenge Builds!

Introducing the SMS Challenge Builds!

So in a previous life, I used to run Group Builds on a Facebook Group where each Group Build featured a 'Challenge' to help encourage people to build more models and try new things.  I've been planning on introducing these Challenge Builds into our Facebook Community, again as a way to encourage modellers to try new things but most importantly, to have fun doing it.  So, kicking things off, our first SMS Challenge Build is 'The Big Bushmaster Build Off'!  Rules are simple, you can only use the new 1/72 Australian Bushmaster kit by Dragon Models and then you can do whatever you like to it!  We will have 4 categories where the overall winner of each will get a prize pack from us here at SMS consisting of a model kit and SMS products. Those categories are :  Best OOB Best Modified Best Diorama People's Choice The Challenge Build...

Support the stores that support us

Support the stores that support us

A very important part of how our company operates is the support given to us by the stores that stock our products - it always has been and always will be. When I first started the company way back in 2016, the first products were developed in secrecy to ensure that it was indeed a viable concept and when it was time to launch them, I approached Suzy & Andrew at Andrew's Hobbies at their old Deer Park store and presented them with the products to get their thoughts.

That was a very important lesson in business to ensure that each and every stockist was supported back as much as possible. Support those who...

Super Silver - liquid chrome in a bottle

Super Silver - liquid chrome in a bottle

I was testing out our new airbrush station at SMS HQ so I thought I'd see how far I can push Super Silver to get a chrome look. I primed with Surfacer Grey (but could've done it with Surfacer Black), then applied a light coat of Jet Black followed by a heavier coat at around 12PSI. Once that had dried, Super Silver was applied in a VERY light coat (only 1 coat) at around 10PSI and left to dry again. Followed up with another very light coat and left it dry and watched as the shine came through and I could see my reflection. That was it! Quick and easy provided you do the right base coat prep to make sure it was super smooth and glossy. Super Silver only costs $11.95AUD a bottle, making it pretty damn good value wise if this is the finish that is possible. Available...
