Garage Kit Tutorial: Making removable parts (Subs/CC Esp)


[Music] welcome present monkeys to this brand new installment of five-minute cookies where I explain a full in detail straight to-the-point tutorial in five minutes or less satisfaction guaranteed or no money back no questions tab today’s topic is how to make a removable parts for your kit certain occasions kits have parts that can be made removable but most of the times people don’t really know how to achieve the state the secret is just using magnets this is a kit I’m currently working on she has a skirt that covers her panties and it’s really a shame because the kit can look really cool without the skirt as well so what I’m going to do is make it removable so it can be displayed with or without it checking out the connection area you can notice that magnets can be placed without being visible these are the magnets I’ll be using they are 1/8 inches wide in diameter and just a perfect size for the connection area I always purchase my magnets with K&J magnetics they have a wide selection of round magnets for you to choose depending on the size you need for your pieces always check the diameter of your magnet with the one that you have for your dremel bit so you can get a tight but exact fit I’ve drilled with a small bit through my piece so this is a round one I have to drill through it but if it would be a regular piece I would just roll inside I want the magnet to be on [Music] the maggot fits in perfectly in the hole they drilled for this piece before you glue your magnets on be sure to mark down the areas on the other piece so you can get a straight alignment and drill in the correct position I already drilled down halfway on this part right here and I’m going to test fit by magnets on it right now it still needs a bit more drilling down so that the magnets can be at the same level as the surface of the resin now it’s just a matter of gluing the magnets to the resin I use Zampa gap glue you can also use Krazy Glue if you don’t have it be careful to glue one magnet at a time because if you have magnets near each other they might just fly away and stick together the next step in this situation is to Reese Culp the area where I drilled through be sure to let the putty cure and then come back maybe the next day phase 2 since magnets have poles you need to make sure to mark down the side of the magnets that it will be glued on to your other piece as we all know that polar opposites attract the same poles will reject themselves and you don’t want that after you mark the side while you will be going on to the resin you can glue them just like the first time first one and then the other [Music] [Music] all driving cured here’s how it looks like these magnets are quite strong so don’t be fooled by their side you can see that they sustain the skirt perfectly without falling apart so I hope you enjoyed today’s mini tutorial remember you can go online to any of my social media websites leave a comment suggestions or just request the tutorial you would like to see in the future I’ll do my best to answer to them until next time my Rosie monkey [Music]

    Very interesting, I wish I knew more about using magnets when I was building Kanu. Would have made that cape thing a lot easier to fit.

    Another top tip. Many thanks for the inspiration. Any chance of a tutorial on how to fit fishnet material for stockings etc that come in some of the GK kits?
    Looking forward to many more.

    Will you be doing any tutorials on cutting part's to make wire drilled wire joint's for custom poses, or any that show how to make and prep custom outfit parts with Dremel rotary sanding tool and resin epoxy, that would add a nice touch. Or maybe one on casting parts.

    Leona, I'm very new to GK's and I wanted to know if you had a video on doing skin tones for anime kits. My first kit is the Cyril Brooks from Pieces 2 and any suggestions would be appreciated!
