I got started painting these right away -- with Testor's Model Paints! Ugh!
They didn't turn out well at all. :(
Eventually I decided to soak them in paint stripper to get the nasty oil-based acrylics off of them. Most of the minis globbed together in an awful mess. I tossed them out!
I did manage to save these three (it took A LOT of scrubbing)
I just couldn't bear to be without my #5001 box, so I did buy a couple off of eBay --
I hope to finish painting a complete box for myself and another for my grandson, Matt.
