    Nicely done. Those tats are coming out awesome! Really unbelievable that they're hand painted. They look stenciled on. Got some steady hands my friend!

    WOW indeed very steady!! :D 

    but isn't it FAKEBUSTER and not FAKEBUSKER?? ;) 

    EDIT: btw I have some of those REVELL acrylics now to for testing on WFC Starcream project..
    but the REVELL ENAMEL seem way better coverage.... what do you mix into your acrylics? can you give my some tips?

    These are the used colours, I put them apart from my other colours to find them easier (I have tons of paint here)
