Got home this afternoon to find a nice little box awaiting my attention. Inside was three pots of metallic paint which I had ordered along with a resin base for the RAF Pilot I have almost finished. I ordered the items Sunday evening and here they are, so great service and well wrapped items.
I bought them from Model Display Products who I first saw at Triples this year and who is assured more purchases from me in the future as his gear is very nice indeed.
These are Mr. Metal Color paints by err Mr. Hobby and cost £3 each. Each tub is 10ml of paint so it's not going to be the cheapest metallic paint you will buy (it's about twice the price of Vallejo) but it's not just any old paint. I have yet to have a play but I had seen the effects that you can get from using it. You see it goes on rather matt but if you rub away the top surface it becomes shiny and the colour is more pronounced. I hope to try a few tricks with it towards the weekend so will update you with a few work in progress shots.
Here is the base, I was expecting a square one but this one looks better so all in all I am very pleased with my purchases.
