The problem with that is I need a laser ink printer and I don't have one. I know. I am a model railroader. So printing my own is absolutely OUT OF THE QUESTION!

mod edit: swapped your link for the one you likely meant. .com resulted in the wrong site.
Thanks for the site.

Oh, yeah, forgot about the ones at Parabox. I've oogled them before XD

I've never printed decals, but I've done some research and from what I could find out, modern laser printers will ruin the paper. What you do need is an inkjet printer, which is why I gave up, since mine's laser :/

It's update time again! Man, I was really bust today panting this one up.
Oh yeah, on Thursday, I painted parts of her helmet.

Then today I painted the rest of her.

Well, that was a task and a half to do. My brother likes the parabox eyes and is deciding on buying a sheet plus eye lashes. After that will be a purchase of a 1/144 HGUC Kampfer (newer) to finish the rest of her armor. So it will be a while before this site gets updated again. As for my comic, Hopes and Dreams, it will resume the first Friday of December. It's just been a crazy month, that's all.

I am having paint issues. The paint around the joints is starting to scrape off. Crud, the clear coat did not help at all. So, what can I do around this issue or do I have to repaint those areas each time I move portions of the figure for photography reasons?

you could try sanding the scraping areas down a little bit, then repainting so there's clearance?

I've never heard of a methof that won't make the paint scrape at articulations. That's why I gave up on painting model kits
I wish I knew how it's done on good quality figures so the paint won't come off.

In a way, yes but the fit was to tight, I don't think it wouldn't of mattered. I'll update once I get some paint down on the joints, wait for it to dry and bend to see if it worked or not.
