Figure Painting

G’day All, in the long break between posts I have been busy with model railway activities, but mainly sharing them through various Facebook and Forum posts, so here is an initial update. Through EBAY I purchased a bulk lot of made in China prepainted N Scale figures. They definitely needed repainting to look anywhere near acceptable.

First step, painting the obvious areas with a coat of Tamiya acrylic Flesh coloured paint.

This is how you repaint model figures on a mass scale. Choosing one colour paint at a time and applying it to the desired figures while they are held on to a match stick with BluTack, or equivalent, and then leaving 24 hours to properly dry.

The figures ultimately come up to standard after a light coat of spray matt varnish.
