That’s come out quite nicely! What paints are you using?

Thank you!! And I used for Eccleston and Tennant these cheap acrylic paints I think it was £1 for a box of 8 tubes but the paint job came out well in both so I’ll probably keep using them! 😃

You might want to look into citadel paints. Slightly more money, but worth it.

Nice job! For cleaner lines on those shoes I'd recommend picking up a paint pen from somewhere like Hobbycraft. They're only a couple of quid and they allow you to sort those fine details. It helped me to get smooth lines when I painted a waistcoat on my B&M 12 and had to tidy up a little bit

I’m definitely gonna try both yours and dalek cheeses idea thank you for the tips!!, I had problems with my B&M 12 too he came with a big red mark on his shirt which I had to paint over !
