    Got one of these from BlackGaine some time ago, and finaly got around to finishing it. However my paint job ended up so bad that he is just going to be used as Unicrons gun.

    And if anyone does this, I actualy recomend painting him AFTER he's put together. Mabey its because I had to mix a couple of different brands of acrylic paint to get this batch of purple, but during assembly, the paint just seemed to flake off like crazy. I thought about trying to get another one and go for enamel instead, but this plastic seems far to close to the kind enamel does'nt dry on.

    Did you put a sealer over the paint...?

    If not...then the acrylic will flake off every time...

    it's not matter of sealer, it's matter of the poor quality of the plastic.
    I have experience with those kits. It's their only problem, otherwise they are very nice!

    Ive got some sealer, but its spray. Can it be gotten in a jar, or would I have to do some kind of funnel trick?
