Looks ok to me, and like anything else, you get better with practice.

Thanks! I have enough camo decals to hope to not have to hand paint camo. The decals are so much easier, for me.

Been two weeks since I last touched this dio base. Today I only managed to get the ground finished. Some small touch ups here and here to be done. I also still need to paint the window frame and weather the brick wall.

Started painting the figures for the dio base. Not done yet, still need to paint a lot more on them.

Clear coat on to protect the paint. The camera flash makes the clear coat look glossier than it really is. The clear is actually semi gloss. The flash also highlights all my crappy hand painting hahahahahaha! Still need to weather the figures then flat coat them. For now, just dry fitting the weapons which as you can see still need painting and also still need to paint the window frame and weather the brick wall.

I just realized I forgot the air filter on one side of the gas mask so just added that. I also painted the flamethrower and attached it. I also attached the conduit for the gas feed line. It is a 1mm OD conduit that is stretchy. Black Dog included a resin feed line but it came snapped in the box so I just replaced it with the conduit. It is made for Tamiya racing RC cars.

Added a shark mouth to the flamethrower. Finally weathered the brick wall too. I just need to weather the figures and flat coat them.
