Default Painting at the Taigen factory!

Hey guys! My boss and his friend Bobby "The Tank" Garelli just got back from the Taigen factory and I figured I would share a few pictures. Bobby will be doing a few custom paint jobs for us and possibly even for you guys

Here Bobby gives a few tips to the painters haha

More painting

My favorite part of this picture is the stool. Perfect neon pink. Not one but two

At least each tank is a "Custom" ...no two alike. Although I would imagine it can get boring after a while. You can't get into too much detail at that production level. Thanks for the pix.



PS I would hate working on the floor. Give me a nice workbench anytime...

I asked Bobby our tank guy while he was in Ningbo actually, the paint was it is a custom acrylic paint
I was interested myself actually as I wanted to try my luck in airbrushing.

We had a few limited edition tanks in this scheme, I still have some top hulls and I wanted to try and match a bottom hull with it. Either that or do a winter scheme on it.
