    This is hand painting correct? What is this cheap paint? They look really good.

    Thanks so much guys! It's strange, i was always so reluctant to use cheap craft paints on models for so long. But now i see that it really is a very viable method. It really is in the willingness to try them.

    actually I use a few of those cheapo paints. I can get a jar at Michels or Jo Ann Fabrics and they work great in the AB. I just use windex as a thinner and they work great. I use Americana brand.

    The Dom was he hand painted also? If so your good !

    Awesome! I have been wondering for years if i could use these paints in an airbrush!. As i never hear of anyone using them in that way. Thanks!

    Oh no. The dom was base painted with an airbrush. Then i did some oil-washes, and dry-brushing. so about 50/50 i'll say.

    Who knew that the Turn A Gundam could get so rusty? Guess all those nanomachines on its armor ran out of power.

    Gundam MKII

    Got out an old kit of mine, and used it to try out some texture effects. This was just a quick one day project, using diy snow for the first time.
    No intention o going super-real..
