New painting tools

I discovered these recently and tried them out with reasonable results.



I bought some exchange 1mm tips (the standard is 2mm).  For 1/300 scale figures I think 0.5mm tip will be needed for crossbelts and other detail, but I had some success using the 1mm tips on 1/100 models.  The advantage is that the tip is rigid.  The pens work best on raised detail, and will not go well into recesses.

I will persevere.

  1. I’ve seen a fellow on the internet that uses calligraphy/map pens on micro armor to do markings and insignia. He uses thinned acrylic paint as a medium. Might be another option for raised detail.
