        Here's something I discovered about MG kits. Remember those nasty
spruce marks/scars that you have to paint over to hide? Well, I used some
acrylics, and after painting it on the scar, I quickly wiped it away.
Apparently, the scar marks will absorb the colour rather quickly, so as long
as you used a reasonably close colour, the marks will disappear, at least to
casual observations.

        Of course, this won't really help the overcuts that sometimes
happen, but it's a quick way to touch up the kits without having to resort
to airbrushing to really make it look good.
