Very well described Danno and an excellent tutorial. What is that fantastic looking Predator Kit. It looks 1/4 scale?

Hey Bulls, this is a 1/3rd scale (27 inch tall) Predator 2 from MK Creature Shop of
Japan. I had done a build up/ paint "how to" article on this in the last issue of
Kitbuilders Magazine (Issue 54).

Painting is MUCH MUCH MUCH more difficult to do as a simple tutorial...especially
since the paint work can change SO drastically from piece to piece. For
example....painting flesh tones can change from sculpture to sculpture, based
on what it is and the look/effect you are going for. This is why I really
recommend subscribing to the magazines for this type of thing so that you can
read about the many methods and aspects of painting. Unless it is a very
specific question, a broad painting instruction would take hours upon hours to
write and 100's of pages of text.

There are some TERRIFIC video tapes called Model Mania with David Fisher (it's a 3 volume set) that have some REALLY great information to them, not to mention a lot of step by step processes with readily available model kits.

There is also a tape called Expliations in Painting that was put out by Horizon that's good too.

Actually DF has put out 5 volumes...the 5th is on a DVD with Vol. 4...You are right though...They are "TERRIFIC"...Not to take anything away from Danno...His info is superb...I've been painting for over 40 years and learned something....Thanks Danno...
