  1. tried to start painting my model today, but the paint just reams to be repeled by the plastic?
  2. been to the shop got a funny look when i asked if i needed acrylic or enamel paint, then i realised i had my wooly hat with a pom pom on. Got 3 paints a white matte , silvey metal matte, and a burnt red gloss. when painting is it best to keep the finishes the same? goint to start painting the insides then i can start slowly building

And i would like to start. from my moddeling past i can remeber as a child airfix kits and gluing my hands together and the stickers that you put in water that just eitehr fell part or stuck all over your hands. I have found a DH beaver kit (airfix) in the loft dont know what scale it is but it will fit on the palm of my hand i guess.
