    THe (Urban) Sniper's Hide

    Finished up my GM project at long last. Came out pretty good what with the trouble I had with the purple spray paint I had intended to use. Wound up doing the purple by hand, as well as some touch up on the blue. All in all, pretty successful venture, considering this was my first real painting attempt using various techniques I've just learned over the last couple of months.

    Next up on the agenda...better photography area.

























    It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. At least, that's what I keep telling myself with all my modeling supplies...

    Nice! Especially considering the problems the purple was giving you.

    Thanks! All in all, I'd say it's been a great learning experience.

    A different color scheme... I have very problems with metallic color, mines always blur in some points of the kit....

    Re: THe (Urban) Sniper's Hide

    This was really my first time experimenting with them. Seemed to be okay for the most part, though certain spots seem a bit thin.

    Re: THe (Urban) Sniper's Hide

    Well, thanks for saying so I'm hoping I will only improve from here. Practice makes perfect (or at least better, I hope)!

    Looking good! I like how the green of the visor sheens.

    For the metallics how did you get it to lay down so smooth? No matter how I try to remove dust from the unpainted plastic, some always shows up underneath the paint and it irritates me. Lol Funnily enough, this never happens with regular non metallic paint for me.
    Oh well. What ever happens, happens.

    What ever you're looking for, it's always in the last place you look.

    Re: THe (Urban) Sniper's Hide

    All I did for that was spray down a couple layers using a can of Testors Arctic Blue Metallic, then touch it up with some of their Model Master acrylic in the same color. Can't really say I did anything else besides that and a layer of Tamiya primer underneath. I might have just gotten lucky not to have any dust stick to it, lol.

    For the purple, I had a layer of Testors Silver Metallic underneath, then ran into problems with their transparent Grape color coming out chunky on the shoulders and shield (assuming a bad batch, as it came out fine initially when I tested it). After that, I sanded them down and repainted them and the rest by hand using a non-metallic grape color thinned down.

    Hehe, guess I just need a disco ball to complete the look.

    Night Fever, perhaps? Or the always classic Stayin' Alive?
