Consolidated Painting/Crafting advice thread

<< < (3/3)

I almost never painted kits. I was satisfied with the
default plastic color. Typically gray/tan for Axis tanks
and some shade of green/tan for Allied tanks. But there
was the occasional oddball kit. Like an Airfix short barrel
Panzer IV which was molded in blinding white.

I tried to lie to myself and pretend it was winter whitewash but it
was just too bright of a white. It looked more like a
UN peacekeeper vehicle and I would gnash my teeth every time
I looked at it.

My reasoning for avoiding painting was by
the time I spent money on paint, I could have bought another
kit.  I was following Stalin's dictum of quantity over quality.
