A thousand dollar build


Recommended Posts

A commission build you could say. Prodos Cheyenne dropship in resin. 




Tamiya red primer followed by light grey primer. I wasn't sure I had enough light gray so starting with grey was an insurance. I had a vague idea of using the red in the weathering process.

Landing gear and floor elevator are magnetised so that my customer can use it as a prop in war gaming scenarios.

I have made a mistake, but it is not clear if there will be any consequences. 

After priming I decided my colourful white-red-black scheme needed a better base. So I bought a can of generic white hobby paint and covered the whole model. It wasn't until I painted the floor hatch I understood that the solvent is quite aggressive!I it made the red primer runny but I don't know if the grey primer was affected. They are both tamiya brand so there was reason to worry. 





Keeping cool I figured it would be alright if I just let the paint dry. 



Now there is a new worry: it said on the can the paint was "flat" but it's rather semi gloss. I have no idea of if Mission Models paint will stick to it...

It looks great, love the subject matter too!

but mission models paint doesn’t stick to anything, don’t blame yourself if it flakes off:) 

I have found the same, but it does do better over the Mission Models primer.
