    Painting touareg warrior. Painted all in acrylics. I used Andrea and Vallejo for the warrior and Jo Sonja's artist acrylics for the camel. I used Jo sonja for the first time and it's really good, I really liked it.

    Perfect work.
    How can you cut the acrylic nameplate so strait......I have great problems with that.

    Thank you very much for your comments, Ed, Babis, Steve, Marc, Meizi, my friends!

    Marc, To cut acrylics nameplate, I use steel ruler and P-shape cutter. and first I apply very very weak scratch line, and then gradually scratch stronger. I scratch over and over again.

    After I cut the half of the depth, I break it by hand.
