|Similar Colors of Tamiya and P3 paint|
So far, I've found that Tamiya is a little more finicky in that it seems to be less forgiving on brush strokes than P3. I'm finding the need to work fast and not go back over the same areas too much with the brush while it's still wet. I can get away with this a little more with P3. I'm reminded that I'm definitely a beginner and still refining my technique.

That said, this session was more of a "test" session with the new paint. I'm still not sure about the color schemes I want on my Opels so I've got a couple of test subjects going. I've settled on green for the Gaz trucks, but I want to try dry-brushing with a lighter shade of it to see if I get the look I want.

After ninety minutes in the garage, my feet became numb from the cold. Even with the heaters on, I can only get it to about 57 degrees in there on days like today. I need to wait for the paint to dry and the feeling to return to my lower extremities before applying some more finishing techniques to see if I'm close to getting the desired effects on the models.

Overall it's been slow, but a very fun session. I am learning new techniques and how to work with different paint and still searching for the desired effect. It's experimentation that makes it fun and challenging for me.
