      • Just so you know, Model master is made by Testor.

        If you’re going to use testors paints, Model master for your air brush, as its a bit of a different composition, and the standard testors for brushing. Testors paints aren’t bad at all, everyone just has their own preferences. However, don’t stick to one brand of paint, because all of them do…[Read more]

    I need help to decide how I should paint my gundams? Should I spray paint or just put on enamel paint?

    • personally i think spray painting is better becasue its faster and doesnt take as long plus if your a noob at hand painting you can really see the brush strokes on the gundam and thats no good to me in my opinion

    Hi I just started building custom gundams and I wanted to know what the best way to paint my gundams? I don’t have an airbrush yet but there are so many ways to paint gundams but I don’t know which way to do it?

A big advantage is that you can mix your own colors just like you do with an airbrush. If you don’t mind brush strokes, you can brush the color right on. If you don’t want brush strokes, dilute the paint with the the…[Read more]

    • Use Mr. Hobby Levelling Thinner when you are painting with a brush. It will prevent the paint from drying up too quickly thus having time to settle evenly and prevent brushmarks.

    • Maybe you should try with spray can first..tamiya spray can is expensive but its easiest way to go
