    I'm new to painting Transformers and before I move on to doing bigger figures, I tried painting a little on smaller ones. However, I can't seem to paint without seeing the lines my brushes leave behind. Is this something that comes with customizing, or am I doing something wrong. PLEASE HELP!!!

    Try painting in multiple coats, instead of one thick one. That might help reduce the visibility of the brush strokes.

    Also, did you check the tutorials to the right?

    I find if my paint isn't thinned enough the brush lines are more noticable.

    My latest customs I've been sprying the base coat which gives a much nicer looking result.

    Hakka.
