I have the refill bottle, it's 17ml if I remember right, and it goes fantastic through an airbrush. The refill bottle is expensive but it goes a very long way. It doesn't need any specific primer it can go straight on plastic, although I haven't tried this. Top coat with aquagloss for protection. You lose a bit of shine but not a huge amount. Since it's a gloss finish it does show up in perfections. Worth the punt!!!

Ah, here are some pictures of my builds.

My first painted kit, the Zoloat SP. I've sincve forgotten what the SP stood for.

The Adele Endeavor. This actually won Best of Show for the Chiago regional of the GBWC back in 2014. I was incredibly embarrassed about the seams. Haven't slacked off on seam removal since.

The Adele Apex. Removed the seams properly this time

Delta Storm. I noticed the Buzz Lightyear colors far too late.

The Graze Falke. I want to repaint/reshade some parts due to chipping, but I've been busy and don't have space...

Hello everyone! I used to be a member of mechalounge before it closed down, probably as "Otonashi" or something. Glad to see you guys are back! I heard about it from Justinius's latest hangout.

I'm currently in LA for school, but I'm from the Chicago area. I've technically been building when I was 5, when my mom bought me a 1/144 Zoloat for my birthday (they were on discount at the local Jusco lol). I started building Gunpla intentionally around the time 00 aired. Kits are plentiful and cheap in China and Japan, so I've been accumulating kits whenever I visit family or go on vacation. Glad we're allowed 2 free suitcases for international travel...

I started painting in 2011. Started with another 1/144 Zoloat for nostalgia value. I've mostly been using spray cans, but I recently started using an airbrush. I've grown to love shading kits, but my current living situation makes it difficult to set up a workstation indoors, so I'm probably taking a break from painting.

My favorite part of the hobby is customizing kits. I love altering kits to reflect your own tastes. Even if I can't paint atm, I can still modify my kits in preparation for painting  ;D

Anyway, to a fantastic hobby. Cheers!

Looks great,I like that you painted it the same colour as the older sniper mg and the decals look spot on.

Info on Mister Bones:
So after purchasing the ATM kit the Madmonk put on to the  Mister Bones character from the Star Wars Aftermath books, so the plan is to make this guy from the ATM kit, should be fun.
This is about the best representation of him that i can find and what i will be working from.

So i have been working on this for a few weeks now and im well on with it now. If your really interested please have a look here.
