GZG Light Vac Suit Paint Test - Opinions wanted!

I'm working on my vac suit minis from GZG and I was wondering if you guys could give your opinion on these two:







Thanks!

  1. The dark one's a little hard to see, unfortunately. I like the pale one.

  2. I like both of them. I think they look like a uniformed ship's crew and a civilian or contracted specialist.

  3. They both look good to me, the Blue is a little darker though

  4. Both look good to me, although the lighter one gives better contrast with the kit. The only suggestion I have is to maybe mix a little metallic medium in with the paint to give a hint of irridescence.

  5. Lighter version has a good contrast - blue just blends darkly at this scale; good work either way. :)

  7. Lighter. For my eyes this color scheme picks-out the details better. Nice work, Mr. H.

  8. I have to agree with most of the above- the lighter suit is far better in my opinion. It has a more realistic feel to me, and has been observed, at this scale the detail is easier to see. Great painting as always though, Mr. H!

  9. With the background used definitely the lighter scheme for me, and as Gunrunner says "It has a more realistic feel" I see space suits being brighter, easier to spot for emergencies in harsh environments. Nice painting btw.

  10. I vote white even though the blue is still good looking.

    I really like the shiny glass on the blue one, by the way. I did a similar trick on some space suits. :)

    Good job!
