I was able to get a Victorion for cheap, so decided to try my hand at painting it since I am not a fan of the Christmas color scheme. I tried to keep the original red paint/plastic as untouched as possible, so I ended up trying to blend orange and red paint to match the existing. Not very happy with the results because the underlying green plastic is too dark. I must have applied 4-5 coats of red. Any tips on the best way to apply lighter colors on top of the green plastic? It took me forever to paint up just one of the helicopters. Planning on finishing the rest of the figure soon. Thanks!
