I do :) I'll ship anywhere.

The width and depth of panel lines are generally a matter of preference.

However, for narrow panel lines, you don't really need to go too deep with them. I'd suggest only going deep enough to ensure what ever you're using to panel line can flow into the lines easily, while standing out enough.

As for sanding the plastic, if you take a look at my MG Crossbone WIP here I only went up to 600 grit sand paper on most pieces, so you definitely don't need it to be shiny to get a good finish.

I generally use wet and dry sandpaper, and I use my sandpaper wet most of the time too.

Thats a really neat paint job! I like the shade of blue you've used. :)

Coming along good and I like the vibrancy of that blue. Very nice.

Thanks a lot guys. I'm really happy with the way the blue and red turned out.

Thanks alot :). For orders outside of eBay you can send me an email at "" of what you want.  ;).

I'll have a webstore up eventually, I'm just in the process of putting it together.

I'll do a special for anyone interested, if you buy 5 via an email order, you can get an additional bottle free and only pay for shipping of 5.  8)

I'd prefer not to use eBay if I'm honest with all the fees and so on included.  ^_^

Got a few more progress images up in my Crossbone Thread, but I'll post them here too to demonstrate the finish of my paints.

Time for a loooong over due update.  :lol:

I didn't like the way the Off White looked with the blue and red, so I changed it to pure white instead.

These are just demonstrating the finish of my paints (there are some black smudges, that's just where I've started to panel line with black enamel paint)

Most of the other parts are almost done, and I should have my complete kit up for all to see.  :D

What do you guys think of the finish of my paints?

Not again!  :doh: Thanks. It's all fixed now though  :P

Okay, so now I've got my whole range of colours available on eBay now.  :D

What do you guys think of the colour range, and the names?

The spectrum of colors looks really nice. Nice to see a pink and the blues are a good bright variety. I too want to see them used, or maybe volunteer to test some if you need any testers.

Thanks a lot Mike, some testers may be very useful.  ^_^

The primer looks nice and smooth. How much do you plan on charging for your paints?

Thanks! My paints are 3.99 per bottle, or the current GBP to USD conversion which is currently $5.95.

I've finally got my whole range of colours up for sale on eBay here  :razz:

More updates on my MG Crossbone coming soon, I've shaded and basecoated the red, blue and yellow sections with my White Bascoat, and painted them their corresponding colours. I've just got the white areas and metalic sections to go.

I forgot to show what colours I'll be using for this kit as well.  :razz:

Alclad Steel for the dark and internal sections. Gloss black for the Alclad undercoat, as well as for pre-shading. White basecoat for the blue red and yellow areas, off-white in place of white for most of the kit, and light grey for some accents to break up the monotony of the off white.

Had a bit of a disaster with this kit  :sarcasm:. Seemingly it was covered in mould release, so the primer didn't adhere to half of the kit.

So that set me back quite a bit.

So after cleaning up and stripping the old primer, I've reprimed it and it's all fine this time.

So my next job to do is strip down all the sub assemblies use my white basecoat on the areas I'm going to be painting bright colours.

I am very interested in your paints so I am looking forward to the final finish on this guy.  3-4 days, man thats quick.

Thanks, looks like 3-4 days is unrealistic now with the set back,  :sarcasm: oh well, it's all primed now anyway, so I can get the white basecoat done very soon.  :razz:

Started my WIP over in this thread.  :razz:

Hey everyone! I'm doing a quick build of a MG Crossbone Gundam, I'm aiming for 3 to 4 days from snapping together to finishing completely, and I'm painting it with my own brand of model paints (being discussed in this thread ).

I finished snapping it together earlier on today, and now I've moved on to the priming and puttying stage. I've got about 80% of it primed, I'm done for the day, so when I come back to it tomorrow, the primer will have cured enough for me to sand it down.

Snapped together (I really didn't like doing the arms on this kit, they were so fiddly!)

5 minutes after priming with my Plamo Colour Grey Surface Primer. It's dried enough after 5 mins to withstand handing without scratching or picking up finger prints. I also thinned the primer with Mr. Colour Lacquer thinner too.

I've rescribed most of the panel lines as well to help with panel lining once I'm finished, something I'm kinda obsessed with now  :lol: but I think it definitely sharpens up a lot of the detail.

Sorry, I missed the post...
I'd be always curious to test new colors and those seem to be very interesting!
Are there also matt-flat ones?

At the moment, all the colours are gloss, however I do have a flatbase, which is the one next to the silver, and the three clear ones on the bottom left are gloss, satin and matte topcoats.

Do you have pics of the paint used on a kit?

Hey Marc, long time no speak!  :D

I'm going to do a full build/WIP with them on a MG Crossbone Gundam.  :-)

Nice range of colors...  ;)  8)

BTW - You want to check your URL links, there are " marks in the URL.  :meh:

Done! Thanks  :-)

No interest?  :( oh well! I'm making an update anyway! I've finished my initial spectrum of colours, so these will be the ones I will have on sale.

I will be making an update later on my website and ebay listings to make each colour available via my ebay auction or via email orders. (I'm currently in the process of setting up the ecommerce side of my website, so won't be using eBay for very long).
