Ok - the lack of vehicles has me a bit frustrated, especially for dioramas.
What I have decided to do is pick up some of the mini-rig type GI-Joe vehicles and give them different paint-ops.
My first one is going to be this vehicle:
The great thing about the newer figures is that they have enough articulation to even sit at the controls perfectly. I bought this toy yesterday and was pleased to see that the ROTS Black Clone Pilot, SA Clone and #6 Clone all fit in this vehicle AND hold the two control sticks perfectly.
So what I was thinking was to get rid of the dark gray and replace it with a dark-blue and then add decals for the Republic or Empire.
The next project I want to do is to take this one:
and make a Clone mini-fighter
and then after that, I want to take this one:
and make a Wookie ground vehicle out of it.
So basically, here's my question - what types of acryllic paints should I use? Does anyone find that one brand works better than another? Should I give the vehicle a clear-coat when I'm done? I've seen some custom stuff before and the paint always ends up being sticky after a while, is there anything I can do to prevent that?
Any and all help/suggestions/ideas would be great.
