Hey there Cheetimus! I bought your custom Strafe from Botcon today, I asked how you do your customs and you told me to message you. I'd really like to learn how to customize, any pointers you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
I was wondering if you would be cool talking about customizing over a messenger perhaps? I feel it could help me out more than simply just following tutorials, you know, being able to talk to someone who repaints figures directly?
Ah, I see! I try my hand at both Airbrushing and hand painting...but unfortunately, I haven't come out with some very good results, and being finicky like I am, I tend to start over until I get it right.
I use Vallejo Premium Acrylics, but I'm not sure if they're working out. I tried them out awhile back and I got a surprisingly hard coat, that was awesome, but since then, I can't seem to replicate that hard coat that stands up to scratches, so I'm trying to find out as much as I can to see if I'm doing anything wrong.
I have a few paint projects that I never finished. They're at least 3 years old. Most of them have been primed. I'm wondering if you'd be willing to take them off my hands. I'll be moving in a few months and am just clearing up space. I won't ask for much. In fact, I'm willing to take a loss on the figures (maybe even a trade). I just want to get rid of them. Would you be interested? Here are some of the molds in question. If you're interested, I'll snap some photos later.

Hey,Cheets! I tried to PM you but it says your data storage is too full. I have some questions concerning the Vector Prime toy. I have most of him apart except for the thighs and his upper arms. I can't quite get these pieces apart and I'm afraid I will break something if I continue. How did you work around this for repaint?
