When looking at that one, it is just like there as been some 20/0 brushes designed especially for Gino, i can't believe the amount of details he is about to create on a Hornet head, this is really brillant work.

Hi Gino. Donīt know what to to say really. Amazing stuff. Excellent painting, weathering and base. It goes to show that the most expensive resin figures are not always needed, to get jaw-dropping models. Top notch!!

Hi guys, Thanks for the nice comments. I really appreciate it!!! Hi JBA, NO, I use the Kolinsky sable brushes by Andrea n° 2- 5/0. I used W&N serie 7 but I find these Andrea's better and they are even cheaper (about 5 euro a piece). Superb brushes for acrylics. Hi Frank, Thanks, but good sculpted and casted resin or metal figures are so much easier and quicker to paint and more fun to do. It's just that ths was a comission job, otherwise I won't be doing any of these "old" (Gen1) plastic figures. I'm now working on an Elisena figure which is a true joy to paint, especially after these plastic ones. Greetz, Gino

Hoi Gino, I see from the above post that you use as small a 5/0. I've often read that the 3/0 and smaller don't hold enough paint for acrylic painting. Quite obviously you have proved this wrong! BTW do you stock the Andrea brushes? Chat soon Rudi

Hi Rudi, Oh yes, 5/0 do hold paint, you just have to dillute it the right way (about 3 parts water to one part paint). I also only use it for the very smallest details. When I was painting with oils I had some brushes of 15/0 size. They were great, but it was at a sell out and I never was able to buy them again. For eyes and stuff I still use oil paint and apply it with an old needle from the airbrushe, acrylics dry too fast to be applied with a needle. We do sell the Andrea brushes just e-mail me. BTW, the Osprey book will be posted tomorrow. Greetz, Gino
