    patience

    Without patience, there is no modeling. Patience, diligence, with a little talent, capable of good results. The modeling kind of a race where you must defeat yourself.(His own impatience, laziness, stupidity).announce1
    As the old wisdom says:defeat yourself, the rest will be easy now.:oops:
    Here the new pic, not too good, i make with flesh light.

    regards janos

    paint

    I try acrilic paint, but it was very difficult to mix the same color.
    Before i use paint Rewell matt 79 (blue-gray) and Rewell 04 white 60/40 %.
    I was able to create again and again in the quantities needed.
    The gun (wood material) i buy from http://model-hobby.pl/.
    Perfect !!:thumb:
