Nice work Rico! Could you educate me a little bit and tell me how you clean the plastic pieces before painting? Do you use acrylic paint or enamel?

Thanks in advance. :cheers

I don't clean the plastic pieces before at all, they're not painted but just plastic.
I used enamel paint because I can't get if off my hands :lol

Looks great! I'm working on a similar project at the moment.

SM, I usually just wash the parts with mild soap and water, just to get any potential casting residue off of them. It's been rare, but I have had problems in the past with paint not taking to plastic parts because of residue on them. I usually use a mix of acrylics and enamels, depending on what I'm painting. The enamels seem to have better capillary action for some smaller things, while I find my Tamiya acrylics are great for just about everything. I'm a big fan of water wash-up too! Just don't buy any expensive natural hair brushes, they tend to not like water. :lol
