I just painted my first Nuka Cola Machine. What I thought was going to be really simple, turned out to be a nightmare. Firstly, I decided to do gatekeepers window mod, which worked out OK, except after I removed the mask over the window, paint had been drawn onto the inside through a pinhole where I’d missed with the glue. I had no choice but to go with the ‘broken’ window and carve out the bit of painted window. Then I couldn’t settle on a colour scheme …it’s red right? How hard can it be? But there are quite a few variants, especially if you include the mod variants. First it was tgoo crimson, then too pink, then my white was too yellow. I repainted it about 4 times. Then I applied too much rust and weathering and had to paint over some, then it looked too fresh. It was just an endless string of headaches. Just one of those days I guess, when something simple just turned out not to be. Anyway, it’s OK I suppose, a bit scruffy and overpainted, but the next one will be better …I hope.
Anyone else had a model like that? Where it just refused to play?
About colour schemes? I’d love to see your Nuka Machines and see how you’ve painted them???
