Welcome here !
I am not sure enamel fits well with flats  :(
But gouache does  :)

Nice with a Finnish member. I lived for a year in Helsinki in the early 80s.
 I paint with Humbrol and oil. It is excellent to mix them.

Pin-up babes are a civilian theme and filled with culture... ;)

You can mix enamel colors (Revell, Humbrol, etc.) with oil colors to get a fast drying color for details.
Old masters like Otto Glaser painted their figures in oil and later the details with a fast drying color.

Best regards

Welcome Casper, good luck on your first set!  Like you I enjoy the wealth of civilian subjects in flats.


Simon Hoggett has an article in the Knowledgebase on painting in gouache as well as some stunning figures in the gallery so there is history there though that is still an uncommon medium.  It does produce vivid colors however.


Again welcome.

I ordered my first set of 30mm flats last week from Berliner Zinnfiguren. I chose flats because of my interest in civilian themes, cultural history.I am going to use enamels, because the paints that I have since last plastic modeling haven't dried up. But I would rather paint with gouache, a medium witch I have some experience.
