Did not expect to take a month off but I guess then it would have been a surprise. New Goal is to be more active.

With as busy as my little girl keeps me I need to really stop getting sidetracked. Had some time and got a few coats of red on the armor. The paint always goes on way thinner then the rest of my colors. Any advice on paints that are to thin? Front and center is the new army addition!

Red is a tough color to work with (like white and yellow). I hate to say it, but the best way to lay down even coats with good coverage is an airbrush.

Well good to know. More reason for me to fix my air compressor I guess. Should be able to get more progress up today.
