Those are great, I've seen people use its ink for airbrush too, tho quite expensive I might add.

I use Brake Fluid Dot 3 for stripping Lacquer paints, and usually works wonders.

Q & A / Re: Best paint brands

I've tried Zurc 2K Paints which were amazing, dries instantly where you can touch it but not cured obviously, tho their clear coats needs to be mixed with their retarder. - About your Vallejo, usually you would want to thin paints with the same brand thinner.

It looks really nice, I love the final colour scheme you gave it. I definitely should try pla-plating in the future.

Q & A / Re: Hand painted vs Air Brush
« on: July 30, 2017, 04:17:17 PM »
I'm a bit late but I would like to place my input regardless. If you're going for hand painting, then you should use enamel paints (It doesn't matter which brand) and the respective thinner for it. You would want to thin the paint as well. It can look good, I've tried, but top-coating using hand brush is quite difficult and if done wrong can ruin the model and I learned it the hard way (Spent weeks hand painting HG Graze Kai and ruined it when I tried to hand paint a topcoat). However what you can do is Hand paint all the colours and details you would do, and then get some Spray Can to topcoat.

For Airbrushing, its a lot easier, since you would not need to worry about brush strokes and you'd be a lot more open on paint type choices.

For me, I'd say Airbrush is better.

My Zaku Firebat (http://mecha-lounge.com/index.php?topic=340.msg2537#msg2537) for instance is fully hand-painted, and there are plenty of spots I can see that I've messed up a bit, but for the most part, it looks pretty good (at least I think so, lol). Tip: hand-painting orange and red can be very tedious.
I've seen yours on D.A back then, looks really sweet.

Introductions / Hello! A little introduction about myself.
« on: July 30, 2017, 02:18:47 PM »
Hi guys its Mo! I just got approved to join the lounge and I would like to introduce myself.

I've been on this hobby for two years now and is planning to stay for longer time.
I mostly delve into Gundam kits, but recently I've gotten interest on Tank models as well. I've never had a custom built Gunpla and never joined any competitions either, but I do like Airbrushing my kits and sometimes changing the colours to suit what I like. right now, I'm working on multiple kits (RG RX 78-2, RG GP01, two RG Zaku II, HG Land Man Rodi)  getting them snapped up first, since I just moved and I lost all my supplies, although I'm expecting my supplies to arrive sometime in August so I can finally get back in action and then back to Airbrush. I don't really have a specific line that I focus on I try and build all kinds of grades, but I've never built a Perfect Grade before (Soon!  ;D ). I included pictures of my 3 top kits that I've worked that I think is the best out of all the stuff that I've done.

In real world, I just graduated earlier this year from College(Bachelor of Science in Computer Science), but right after graduating I got into an accident and broke two bones on my left leg in half and I just got out of rehab few weeks ago, and I'm still in recovery (Thank Gunpla, I'm not bored). After I recovered I plan to look for work but still continue building Gunpla!

I do look forward on being part of this community!

Here is my top 3 kits that I think stands out the rest of what I've done.
