Quick little project I did today while working on other stuff… The mysterious new black division badge from the third episode of Discovery, “Context is for Kings.”
Basically, it’s just a QMx science badge with the symbol filled in, then painted. It was tricky to get the engraving fully hidden, because the metal is so much harder than the filler. I kept knocking it flat with the sandpaper instead of building up the slight curve needed. In the end I used the superglue + baking soda trick which is very slow sanding, followed by a little spot putty and filler primer to fill in the slightly rough texture of the superglue.
