    Question, painting the armor on a trooper that is plastic and has a coat of model master white primer air brushed on, do you use a flat white or more of a gloss to bring out the shine in the armor?
    I am going to weather this trooper but not much..
    Every thing I have done up to this point has been like at-at's and speeder's and done in flat paint.

    Thanks,

    I think you are referring to lifesize armor, right?

    Sorry about the grammer in my last post, was at work and was little busy.. I am painting a scout this weekend and the white armor I was going to air brush with a white gloss paint to give that plastic shine to it.. Good idea?:thumbsup Stick with reg white?:thumbsdown Or go with a flat white? :confused
    As I stated before I have a few coats of primer on and after a few more little mods I hope to spray this scout this weekend..
    Any opinion's..... This is simply the MPC speeder bike, "83" kit..

    Thanks,

    MY
