My first try:
Looks like poop... I know. The bitch of the thing is I would simply throw it away and get another if the price of these babies wasn't so high. Fortunately a good Pine-Sol soaking will strip this crap with the help of a little tooth brush. Sigh.... It took so long to get to this point. Lesson learned is thin your paint out more, but more importantly use the bloody right paint pots.
My second try with a different model:
I just did one leg to try the new paints I picked up. I think the shading and layering worked much better. The main hull is going to be a bitch, but I'll just have to take my time.
What do you think?
