I appreciate you taking the time to make these vids. I watched the series and grabbed the last Testor’s color I needed today as well as some brushes from Hobby Lobby. I’ve learned a lot and can’t wait for my kit to arrive to try these techniques.

A pleasure, trooper. I’m really pleased that they are helpful. :-)
