    Okay, who cares. I just painted a G1 Bumblebee blue. I finally found a place that sells Testors and bought a economy pack or whatever. Had an extra Bumblebee, figured I'd give it a whirl.

    Pretty sweet. I have to learn to LET IT DRY and come back to it. I have to learn a lot, as we all know. I like using acrylics better I think but so far this was fun and he looks shiny and smooth with no other gloss finish!

    The head is kinda sloppy. I'll have to wash out the bits on the silver part. Oh well.

    Worth the try...

    Hey it looks pretty good, and this is the way to practice. Start small, with a simple mold and work out issues on a smaller scale. Seems like you've already learned a lot.

    I like to work on multiple projects to make sure I give them time to dry/cure between steps. I see you're in Chicago, so if you need paint/supplies check out Chicagoland Toys & Hobby. It's on the northwest side, but they have a lot of good stuff.

    Yeah man absolutely...start with something simple...get to know your technique...the more you practice, the more comfortable you will be tackeling bigger projects down the road.
