    Hi everyone, got something new. I find it fun (and stops me from getting boared) to work on two different models at a time. It does take longer but I find it is more fun.

    This is clone trooper Alpha-98 - Alpha class Advanced Recon Commando Captain:

    "Men like me don't start the wars. We just die in them".

    Pics are not good (mobile phone camera) but I have filed a request with Santa for an early Christmas gift...digital camera!

    Comments are most welcome.

    Hi Grant,

    Thanks once again for your comments! A bit of encouragement for new members goes a long way!

    The chipped paint was a pain... but eventually it turned out to be a simple process. I painted the red strips along the arms in red colour allowing for the acrylic paint to give its own tones. After three hands of watered down red paint I began applying the white along the edges in a non-uniform pattern. The white paint is of slightly heavier consistency to make sure that the red did not show underneath. The scratches were done with quick light brush strokes.

    This is the best I can say to explain the technique.

    Thanks,

    Ant
