Paint and Go!

Paint and Go!
Sometimes we think that we have seen everything as far as the scale modeling scene is concerned, yet luckily new things keep appearing to surprise us. This week the award goes to Decalcas for the latest idea they had, really simple but at the same time very useful for all of use who seek to get down the ultimate detail, and also for those of us who seek productivity in our assemblies.

Well, these lads just released the Paint and Go range of parts cast in an almost completely black resin, allowing you to paint directly with your favorite metallic color without having to apply a shiny black base first.

What do you get out of it? On the one hand, you save time and work in applying the black base, and on the other (and this is what we see most interesting) you will be able to preserve all details in these absolutely tiny parts since you will be applying one less coat of paint.

You can now put half a dozen of these gorgeous fittings in your SpotModel shopping cart, they are quite an invention. Paint and go, we love it!!! :D
