Quick update on this one . I want it to resemble more a manga illustration than a scale model -- if that can be a thing .
A drop of that thinner when mixing the water color to break the surface tension , then affixed with the varnish when it looks right . Multiple applications to build color . These components below are pretty close to finished color-wise . KInda . Flat coat when they are ready . Minimal chipping where it makes sense ; at the feet and outboard on the legs etc .
