    I just ordered two Virtual On injection kit models from Hasegawa, and I'm thinkin' of painting them. Any tips and recommendations on what kinda paints I should get (which company and such) as well as tools and where to get them?

    I have done modelling in the past, but I'm thinkin' of goin' from the clean table and so.

    How do you plain to paint them,Air brush or by hand?

    As for tools,
    Small wire clippers or nail clippers - hardware and grocery store
    Brushes camel hair- Loew-Cornell from Micheal's craft store
    Sanding paper,220,320,and 1500 grit paper. - Hardware store
    Xacto Knife - hardware store
    I use testor's Plastic Cement brush-on liquid glue.

    For paint you might try Testors Model Master line of acrylics.
