My eyes bleed

Have to give credit to the guys that do micro scale modeling. 1/2400 is my first foray into micros and wow my eyes are hurting already. Another ship arrived today, a Ticonderoga guided missile cruiser. Bit disappointed with the cast of this one, the bow was twisted and warped and the mold line through the top of the ship is horrible. The Burke has a small mold line through the top but wasn't as noticeable as this one. Still there cheap and overall pretty nice.

Had a crack at painting the Burke this arvo, did the deck in a darker gray and stacks in black. Glossed it in prep for a pin wash of Ak interactive NATO black wash. Hoping it goes well and makes it pop a bit. Any advice for painting tiny ships is welcome.
