    Hey thought I'd say hi!

    My names Mark and I hale from the provence of Saskatchewan in the country on Canada!

    I'm a fairly new/inexperienced modeller.

    Couple photos of completed models I've done.

    Have a few of the alpine 1/16 figures and was thinking of starting painting them.

    First have to find a couple of good practice figures :)

    Any tips and tricks I should know? Thinking of using oils for the skin and using acrylics for the rest of the figure.
