Well even as a hardcore lifelong white metal fan i'd say resin. It's would be easier to clip off the pistol grips and they would be lighter for gluing to hands... Just my opinion but there you go...

Ooo... those aircraft are very snazzy in the print, Malika! You've done an ace job with them!

I give another vote that resin is the better material for pistols: if the idea is to improve convenience (there are plenty of pistols out there, just attached to other things...) then resin is much easier to work with than metal. And much less need for pinning, etc..

Resin has my personal preference as well, especially for that type of bit. :)

Regarding the aircraft, I started working on another one...very early WIP...

Absolutely exceptionnal. Marvelous stuff.

And the new one looks good too. You manage to keep the spirit even by changing the general shape. Nice job.

Oo, some intriguing lines!

The second one shows why you should protect your fighting machines from evil influences: they sprout wings and bigger guns! :P
