Yes you do! They're finish is second to none but they can be annoying to use because the surface has to be completely free of any imperfections.

Re: Bandai's BB-8 (1/12 scale)

After a little trial and error, I found a paint mix that I think looks pretty good. It's a little darker than the kit plastic, but after looking over some reference photos of the puppet used in the movie I think it works really well.

Thanks Duck.

I've already come up with an orange mix that I think closely matches the filming puppet, I just haven't posted the pictures yet.

As far as the seam on head goes, I'm not concerned about it because it's in a natural spot for a panel line (at least on the left side of his dome).

Re: Bandai's BB-8 (1/12 scale)

I recently picked up the new R2-D2/BB-8 combo kit. The Artoo is just a repackaging of the released in the spring of last year, which is nice to have multiples of, but obviously the main draw is BB-8!

A quick comparison to the filming miniature says to me that the detail is pretty accurate. The legs on these things didn't have a lot of greebles.

Re: "I can hold it!" (Bandai 1/72 X-wing, Red 6)

The painting on Porkins' base is complete! I will let the paint on the base dry overnight and then give it a gloss lacquer for a smoother finish. I already have the acrylic rod cut to the proper length and then I will epoxy everything together. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-oex1hdGYRo0/VlzVrSDAxkI/AAAAA...
