    Hi DChan,

    The round metal studs I used are silver or gold nail beads I got off amazon. they have all different kinds of colors and sizes. Also they are not too expensive.
    I drill a small hole about 1/2 thru the styrene and the super glue the nail bead in place.

    I'm hoping to finish up most of the rest of the work and start putting down the primer.

    Thanks for looking.

    I got sometime to work on it this weekend.
    I made a few minor changes to some of the parts.
    I also laid down some primer to help find the pesky mold lines and imperfections.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on your knight. I used to build Legos when I was a kid, and seeing a knight put together piece by piece like this brings me back to those times.

    I then started working on the chevrons. My hats off to people who do this.
    Man fighting with the liner tape was murder.

    Wen i went to remove the liner tape from the leg piece it took all the paint off.
    I am so pissed off right now. I even put a coat of dulcoat over the yellow to protect it from doing something like this.

    That sucks about the tape ripping the paint up. It was looking really good on that piece and the other piece that looks like it survived the tape looks great with the chevrons

    Hey Tee! This looks fantastic mate. Sorry about the tape + paint rip, that sucks! May I ask what kind of tape you are using?

    Nice progress! Sorry about the tape though, it's always frustrating to see that happen.

    I know that sinking feeling when you put hours into a project and something goes wrong. I’m usually too impatient to wait a full day before masking over a freshly painted surface so I only use Tamiya tape or low tack painters tape. Even then I’ll stick it to my shirt 2 or 3 times to reduce the stickiness before placing on a miniature. After painting military armour for a few years I just paint mistakes in my chipping colours and call it battle damage.
