    Nice work, I just got a second Knock Out in the mail today to attempt my own custom on. Hopefully it looks as good as this one.

    You got too much on it, light coats till it's good and solid/even. You're in luck though with Knockout. No pin to even worry about getting stuck. The wheels attach from the back in a totally different way, grips/clamps into the ring it's housed in and rotates within it. First time I've seen one with wheels this way.

    Yeah. General rule of thumb for painting figures is never go with tube paint. Use paint in pots/small jars.

    Giant tube paint can be just fine. You just have the thin it. Squirt a tiny chunk into a bottle cap, add a little solvent (water works fine for acrylics) and then mix and paint. It needs to be a runny liquid. A globby paste won't work.

    I've never had any luck with it myself even thinning it but maybe it was the brand or something. I've had decent luck with Testors Model Master acrylics and some Citadel shades so I use it. :)  What tube brands are ok?

    This is looking excellent. I think a quality paint job is all that is need needed for this to go from a so-so figure to top-notch.
