More Infinity Terrain!

In a shocking turn of events, this post features more MAS Infinity terrain!

I finished the new Garage, and used some of their Graffiti Transfers on it.

The problem with their graffiti transfers is that they are too big for the surface area on any of their building, so you've got to trim them down. Also there's a bit in their instructions about "after it dries for 12 hours, gently peel off the film." Unlike any waterslide transfer... ever. The film IS the decal! I trusted them, and tried to pull off the Ariadna decal's film... and sure enough, just as I knew it would, the image came up with it. I don't know what they're talking about. Now I have a damaged decal ON the building... that I had to severely cut down even to FIT the building.

Keep in mind, the same company making the decals make the buildings, so...

Also, with how TIGHT all of the MAS components fit - those garage doors do not slide out through the roof as easily as one would like. Especially after a gloss coat-decal-matte coat treatment that the Aleph decal went through. She's lost her head! And now the whole front of the door has scrapes.

Again - everything fits SO exactly, that it is ALL TOO TIGHT. MAS needs to shave a mm off all of their tabs and slots.

Next up is another L-shaped building. This time I added the bit of District 5 on top, instead of below.

I managed to finish an entire 3-story District 5 Apartment today as well. I just need to seal it and get pictures of it. That leaves one more 3-story District 5 Apartment to paint (they're taking me about 3 hours), and the MAS buildings are DONE!

Then it's just a bunch more scatter terrain, buildings from Warmill, crates from Defiance Games...

Oi vey.


  1. Hey Tom, I don't suppose you've tried using the usual Decal setting techiques(MicroSol/MicroSet) with these? I'm glad I found your post, because I just placed one on the side of a SML building, with some of the blank film hanging over the edge. Was going to peel it off later. :/

    They look great, but that film is ungodly thick and shiny.

    1. Just experimented with one on its paper sheeting. THere are definitely two film layers present, as I was able to carefully peel the top thick layer away and was left with what looks like a completely normal transfer.
