Long time lurker, small time poster  :razz: shameless advertisement, I know! But I think some of you guys might be interested.

I've decided to start up a a business selling my own-brand lacquer based paints, because of the difficulty in sourcing Mr. Color and other brand lacquer paints (especially since the Japanese Shipping ban).

My range of paints are called "Plamo Colour" and I aim to cater specifically to the likes of Gundam and other Mech modelling, I will have a range of paints coloured for Gundam kits specifically, as well as colour packs for different kits.

That's not to say they won't be suitable for any other types of modelling projects of course, and I will be offering paints that are colour matched to real world car colours too, as well as colours catering to Aviation and Armour modellers and custom mixed upon request colours too.

My paints are lacquer based, so are compatible with Mr. Color range of paints and accessories, and can be thinned with Mr. Colour thinner, and Mr. Retarder works with them just fine too.

My paints come in 60ml bottles, and require thinning to around a 50/50 ratio of paint to thinner.

Currently, I have two colours for sale ( :( ) but I am adding new colours all the time, and within a week I should have an additional 20-30 colours, including a range of clear colours, primers and additives.

For those that are interested, you can find my paints listed on ebay, the listings can be found on my website: www.plamo.co.uk, or you can contact me at mail@plamo.co.uk for email orders.

I will deliver internationally of course! Contact me for international delivery quotes.

The current contents of the website is only temporary and will be expanded into a full online store in good time.  :razz:

A quick few pictures of how the paints look.

Hi! There is an alternitive that may be just as good, cable braid, it's made from nylon so could possibly be painted fairly easily, plus is comes it various sizes and is very cheap, here's a pic of the stuff I'm not too sure where to pick it up in the US, but i think some PC customisation online stores have it. :lol:

Model In-Progress / My MG WIng zero custom
« on: June 06, 2005, 04:01:35 PM »
Thanks for your input  :lol:  Ill redo the panel lines on the hip section head, and on the shins , but im not liking using enamel for doing them, too messy and i hate the smell of enamel thnner :P  I have gloss coated it so i can use rub on decals, then im gonna give it a satin coat,  and the seams on the arms, lol i thought they were meant to be panel lines,  :) Do you have any tips on how i can do panel lines? oh, and  havent done the v-fin sesor, or  the sensors on the foot gaurds, as im doing the buster rifle tommoroe, ill make them then, the part i am hapiest with is the chest sensor.

oh, and btw, i think some of the shading is a bit heavy, especially on the wings, im gonna tone it done so it will blend with the wing tips, although im happy with the rest of the shadding, which reminds me of the last part of endless waltz   :D

Model In-Progress / MG WIng.ka with some extra details

Quote from: "FichtenFoo"
I think your added lines are turning out quite well. They look like they came wit the kit. How are you doing them? What tools/technique?


Thanks  :lol:  the way i did the lineswas  by using masking tape as an outline of lines i wanted to scribe, i then used a sharp blade and followed the edge of the tape, this put a guide of the lines i wanted into the piece. I then removed the tape, and used a slightly blunted retractable blade that i had ground into the shape of a scribing tool, and scribed away , oh btw i used my dremel to grind the blade into the shape i wanted this works great as a scribing tool, also this is my first time at attempting scribing pannel lines   :P

Hi, this is my current project, im doing a wing ka, but i think the legs lack detail for a mastergrade kit, so ive added some extra pannel lines around the leg areas

yeah, ill mostly use dixie for reference, but i am quite tempted to buy the Iwata HP-C from them, as the best price ive saw it over here is £130, which works out roughly as $250  :shock: and then i can buy a compressor else where
