MCP – Cable & Domino Painting Guide

Welcome to my latest painting guide! This time covering the epic Cable and Domino. I’ve really been looking forward to this pair. Cable is one of my favourite models from MCP so far, with so many cool elements to get stuck into.


I need your support. Because my guides takes time and supplies to do, any support you can offer would mean the world to me. A supportive message in the comments is enough, but if you have the means why not send me a gift on Ko-Fi or PayPal. Thank you!
