This is my first attempt with alclad paints and I must say they are fantastic to use. pretty simple to use if you are willing to invest the effort in properly maintaining your airbrush and waiting for the base coat to cure! Its like torture! the finish is really durable and was sealed with humbrols enamel gloss lacquer. I particularly like the chest, seems like the matrix is shining through because of the bright flip paint. Thanks C&C always welcome.
