How’d y’all get those lines so straights. I swear everyone has tiny paint tape or something! I am thoroughly impressed

I can't answer for OP, but traditionally one uses masking tape cut into shape(s).

I’ve painted two Davion Guard (waiting for the Atlas and Wave 2 to come in), and I had to go with a steady hand and lots and lots of prayer. Weird, though, since my paint scheme is different than his…?


DeliciousGlue

This. Once you get the feel for it, freehanding straight lines isn't too hard. Unless you start doubting yourself and get the nervous shakes, that is.

Which scheme did you use? Davion Guard has the red and white pinstripe, or red CT with white pinstripes between that and blue side torsos and limbs. There might be others that are official as well.


HighlighterFTW

I went with the red CT and white between the blue. It seemed the easiest to paint at the time!


J4H3AD

I almost did the same! The pinstripes just seemed to be the more iconic color scheme.

Testors makes tiny masking tape! It’s for model car pinstripe painting but it works just as well on other models


J4H3AD

Can confirm, a steady hand and a prayer

Damn good job, commander!


J4H3AD

Thank you sir!

Hey, nice job Jah! Great lines on those!


wario_wa_wa

Look great. Would recommend to thin your paints with a bit of water

This was one i base coated a long while ago. I've learned a lot in the few months since I started these. Mostly just adding the stripes and the metallics on the cannons.


DeliciousGlue

Nice, I dig the cockpit colour especially! Reminds me of those astronaut helmet reflective shields.

For those I use Turbo Dork Multipass. I have a handful of their metallic paints, and they turn out nicely I think.
