Took me a week to paint those buggers. Never doing it again. I ended up smearing their faces over their helmets, or vice versa.

There was a small nuclear blast :lol:

I'm pretty happy for it, for my first proper model.

Thanks :D Just a bit of thinner, black and brown paint, scrubbed over the surface.

Can you thin that kind of paint though? You'd have to bust out the tiny brush (and those tiny micro-pens for extreme detailing) to do a crewman I think. And THATS where you get to test your merit as a modeller :twisted:

I wound up using Tamiya's "Nato Brown" and then do a wash (I use something like, a one part black, one part brown, eight parts thinner).

I haven't had much luck with thinning paints. Tamiya IMO works acceptably from the bottle. That said, what are all the rest of yous guys doing?
Do I look like a reasonable man to you, or a peppermint nightmare?

Hi guys and fellow modelers:
A good site to search for models, is this one. They include almost all kits and add-on kits.

As for your saladin search, there is some but not many.
