We are still not finished with all the diversity of the world of welding: there is the last, but the main thing, for which all this welding was started – welding seams!

The relative position of parts, the movement of the electrode and the relative position of the parts and the burner – everything matters, works for the result and appearance.



ВIn modeling, at least on the scale I am constantly talking about, there are fewer ways to simulate welding. I know three: hot drawn plastic, two-pack putty, and stenciled putty. I had to try everything myself, but settled on the second method. Most likely the result is not a fountain, but I like it and this is the main thing. To reach for a true ace, apologist and fan of the DmitryShavrin model welding will still not work, because he also does not stand still. improving his virtuoso talent.

You can see for yourself: work on the next model of the tank on Panzer35, this time T-55AD

For those who are simply lazy (or afraid – as I did in my time), products of the following range are intended – etched welded seams, which almost any company specializing in etching has. There is nothing special to describe, so I’m stupid listing.

Actually, not so much. Most likely the product is not very much in demand. Although, looking at the width of the assortment of the next manufacturer, you begin to doubt this. American Archer is quite famous for its dry decals, was born into a whole welding workshop

Here are just reviews and descriptions of the application, I did not find. Can anyone share their impressions?

So my next review ends and I would like to finish it beautifully, but without going beyond the discussion topic. Thank God, there is no need for this, welding, or rather welding seams, are not only functional, but beautiful enough in themselves.

A 23-year-old artist and welder from Chicago (USA) has discovered a new kind of fine art that is not inferior in its picturesqueness to many classical techniques: “I create my works by argon-arc welding or TIG (in the environment of tungsten shielding gas).

Richard Louth: “Many people create beautiful works of art with a pencil or brush. I use my welding machine for this.
