Probe is currently residing on the Anime-Models ML, waiting for the
Golden Days of the GML to return again before he comes back to the list :)
Actually, I think he's waiting for Turn-A to pass :) So I will impart a
helpful hint on his behalf: Pastels. You can get them at art stores; use a
pastel slightly darker than the base color of paint you have applied, grind
up and apply gently around the edged or panel lines of the model. This is a
cheaper alternative to airbrushing...light dust coats of a lighter color
also work.
