I found a very interesting article on scratch-building Sci-Fi models. It's geared towards larger models, but most techniques would work fine at smaller scales. The site also has some interesting photoshop tutorials, such as this "dirty metal and rounded courners" tutorial which would be useful for paper models.

I decided to put my new discoveries to the test tonight by matching a color that I liked, Testor's Model Master Olive Drab, but a paint texture that I hate, being very thin. In doing so, I stumbled into the Third Dimension of paint mixing.

I use mostly Delta Ceramcoat paints. I like most of them and they are definitely cheap. The big downsides for me are that some, like yellows and oranges, are often translucent and they lack modern military colors like olive and khaki.

This Creafigs post shows one guy's formula for mixing various GW paint colors from the GW primary colors. I don't use GW paints (although I may get the primaries just to try this), but I thought it might be useful. This looks like a good, basic guide to mixing paints.
