I'm a complete noob, about 75% done with my first build (Spitfire). Many mistakes have been made so far, so I'm looking to greatly improve my technique by learning from the pros! I particularly struggle with painting. My mix always seems either too thick or thin, and I feel like I'm wasting paint by using disposable pipettes (even if I squeeze as much out after, it still feels as though I'm leaving a lot behind).

Anyway, I'll probably lurk for a while before posting. Chances are all my questions are answered, and I just need to find the answers.
