Hi all,

I'm looking for someone to review a set of acrylic paints. A short description of qualifications and expectations follows:

Qualifications

- For postage cost purposes we require the reviewer to be located in Europe (British Isles or Continental Europe)
- Working experience with acrylic based paints is essential
- Review or feature writing experience is not a must, but certainly an advantage
- As the review will be published in English, a fair command of the English language is prefered

Expectations

- Most importantly you are expected to write an honest and forthright review (assessment) of a modelling product (no fluff pieces please). Write it from your personal point of view as if you had just purchased it personally.
- A product review of no less than 400 words in length
- Clear photographs of the product (i.e. in this case the box & contents) as well as the various paint products applied must be supplied. You may not simply use the vendor supplied images!
- Turnabout time is no more than 2 weeks from receipt of the product

Remuneration

Sorry, but this is a volunteer job. You are however permitted to keep the sample and will be "paying it forward" to other members of the community.

Where and how to apply?

Send applications to [email protected] with the following reference in the subject bar: Acrylic Paint Set Review. Please note your Kitmaker callsign as well.

Applications close 23:59 GMT Monday 9 June 2008

Thanks

Rudi

I'll assist the bump Rudi
I feel I can't do painting justice, (as I rarely get to that stage!) so I'll renege on this, but I say get on board people!

How humble of you Brad. So do you live in the British Isles or Continental Europe now?
