1/72 ACW


I picked up some used figures some time ago that I tried a different painting technique on. It was painting a base colour and then using a wash and highlight. I've done the wash and one part of highlight and I'm not that happy with it to be honest - perhaps the final highlight and detail (buttons etc) will make it look a bit better. I also had them glued to the base before painting - it was fine for the Airfix but a stupid idea for the Revell figures as I could not get to into some of the detail.

Airfix Confederate.

Revell Union.

I think I'll go back to either a simple one paint layer system OR a two step darker\light paint job.
