    Greetings All!

    Iíve been lurking on these boards for a while now and have decided to finally join in the fun. Iím starting to slowly piece together a SE Boba set. Iím not in any rush, but am excited to get going.

    Iíve got a set of armor on order from RKD that Iím very much looking forward to. I havenít ordered anything else yet, though. Iím holding off on the helmet and jetpack because if I get too much at once, I know Iíll try to rush through it. And Iím holding off on the soft parts because I am trying to lose a few inches from the waistline and donít want to have to start over before I even finish!

    Iíll probably put together some kind of build thread once I get started, as itíll probably encourage me to keep moving. Iíve got a question to get me started. What is the best brand of paint to use for airbrushing? Iíve seen a lot of discussion on Humbrol and Testors. Is there an advantage to either? Is it mostly just based on location?

    I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and seeing where this goes!

    Welcome to TDH....and the obsession. Theres lists upon lists of paint to use...i guess its up to you really what you use. And colors can be mixed to achieve anything really. So it all depends on you. I have a stock of different humbrols, floquils, testors model masters etc....probably 80 bottles of paint in my case. Its not cheap but worth the flexibility of color pallet.

    That is a lot of paint. Where did you find the floquil paints? I had a hard time finding some of the colors.
