Painting / Re: The humble brush!

How would you go about doing pre-shading and post-shading with just hand brushes and spray cans? An airbrush, compressor, and spray booth are beyond what I can afford right now on top of the issue of space for a spray booth.

You might want to try one of the blending techniques mentioned above, I also like to use very thinned colored painted and blend then from panel lined out into the center or outer edge of a part I want to shade a slightly different colour.

have a look at this build, I air brushed the base colours but all the weathering and shading is done using washes and a normal size 2 brush, its more obvious on the grey leg I think.

The new HG PACIFIC RIM kit coming out next year look very promising. The BRACER PHOENIX looks very cool.

A Lukas Strike E commission in titans colors with slight modifications in the shoulders and for the grand slam sword.

WIP can be found here.

It's been a long time since I built a Gundam that needed screws, I kinda miss them.

I like the darker scheme you went with here! I have to ask did you have some troubles with the decals on this kit? it looks like they gave a little fight on the chest area a bit. I am sure you are not to blame as some times third party decals can be troublesome...I know ive had my share of ones that just did not go the way I planned. overall I love the look of this build..i need a 2.o zeta as well.
The third party decals my client gave me for this build were really strange, there were little bubbles all throughout the sheet. I tried numerous times to slice into the bubbles and have softer melt them down but they still persisted.
