After one of the most challenging constructions since I build scale models, I finally managed to paint this little kit from Dragon. For the first time, I used Mr. Gunze Hobby Color acrylics; these are very fine paints, with a longer drying time compared to Vallejo, the paints I used so far. This is useful for airbrush, as for the hand brush nothing beats Vallejo.
I must mention again the excellent upgrading set from Hauler, it was a great addition and I strongly recommend it. I plan a little diorama, somewhere in north Africa, but my searches for some decent SAS figurines were fruitless so far.
I weathered the entire model with several layers of oil paints, and added a small amount of pigments at the end.
I still don’t like my photos against white background, but I know I’ll keep trying 🙂
