    Dunno about the tube, but Litko Aerosystems sells clear acrylic in any base size you care to specify.

    Thanks #9 for the tip. I'll have to research their offerings and see what I can find to my liking.

    For round bases I'd use clear acetate or even blister like plastic. Can get sheets of it on eBay pretty cheap.

    Plasticard is an alternative but I use clear acetate because it's usually cheaper and you can see what is going on through the clear stuff. Cut a piece so the ends match up without an overlap and tape over the join with standard tape.

    Green Stuff World have a UV reactive clear resin and also sell round metal base size cutters. They showed a few bases being done with those on their YouTube channel so maybe give that a look. Might be a simpler option than 2 part resins. Will advise a bit of vaseline on the inside of any barriers though to help with removal. I'm also use to sanding and polishing after going from 180 grit to 4000+ grit. Takes time but I'm a glutton for punishment.

    Don't have that one so more thinking the Haidao next to make it a full fireteam.
    Then the Daoying sniper I have leaving the Liu Xing for last.

    Then look at expanding. A good proxy for Tai Sheng could be good. Maybe I'll just use the boarding shotgun Zuyong for now.

    Been a while since I did some more but...

    I worked on the Haidao and Liu Xing last night.
    Just the grey areas and the Liu Xing flesh are done so far. And I admit, those diagonal sculpted details are going to be tricky.

    Still a way to go.

    Well that's annoying because I upload them directly to this forum. Brilliant.

    Not happy but also happy they're there again.
