the panel lining on the back of the shield looks great. Just one question, did you painted or did something to the actual armor plates of the Strike?

sword.impulse 2008-03-25 19:28

Yeah, i just used plain old tamiya blue, and for the red i replaced it with dull red.

It's probably shiny because you're using glossy paints. If you want it less shiny just use matte paints or a matte overcoat.

I hope i didn't confuse you with that:p

i am using tamiya regular red here is a pic



the paint felt thick cuz i go over 2-3 layers make sure everything is covered

~Destiny~ 2008-03-25 20:34

Ummm as far as i know all tamiya canned paints are glossy(somone correct me if i'm wrong)

So just use a matte topcoat. I dont think it'll make the paint feel TOO much thicker

beamknight87 2008-03-25 20:47

does regular spray cans also work or they MUST be Tamiya ones?

~Destiny~ 2008-03-25 21:06

I dont usually use spray cans so i might not be the best to answer that, but I'm pretty sure as long as you prime and use acrylic/enamel spray paints, it should work just fine.

Go over it with Tamiya Topcoat (Flatmatt). It protects the paint, and "unshines" the model. And I must say, your model looks pretty awesome.

yeah its a tamiya can. It comes out flat but i also have mica red, and it has a glossy finish.

but yeah, matte coat will take the gloss away, dries really fast too

and about the numerous layers, i try to do one always if possible. sometimes too many layers dont dry well and they become prone to fingerprints and panel lining becomes more difficult, if that helps any.

thnx, gonna go get a can of matte coat tomorrow, i think sometimes i layered mine too much, but kinda hard try to get everything covered in one layer with soray cans... maybe i should just stick to OBB, do some panel line and coating...

And while you're at it, get yourself a can of Tamiya Surface Primer as well. Priming the parts reduces the chances of putting on several layers of coats, and the paint sticks really well, too.

By the way, that Astray of yours looks great; I like your chosen color scheme. ;)
