    Well, I got myself a gold metallic paint pen from Michael's and tried it on Ricochet... Let me tell you this... Good thing I wiped it off in a hurry because it was a MESS... The gold on Ricochet's face was more orange compared to this gold pen I had... :( 

    So I guess I will be leaving Ricochet's nose white... I tried to take the head off and just paint the entire face with the gold pen, but the screw on the back of his head is starting to strip so I can't get the screw out...

    Oh well... :banghead:

    knew where this was going before I clicked on it... it's been my observation that paints from craft stores are shite when it comes to using them on models. I'm telling ya bro, testors model master acrylics. I'd give you a website, but they charge $7 shipping.

    I've managed to clean off all the gold metallic ink on him so he just looks like he did when I first broke him out of the packaging... I was really hoping to fix that nose though...:(

    Maybe you can cover it with like a little mini-bandaid. He'll really look hard-core then.

    Just stick him on a beach chair, put him under a palm tree, and give him a fruity drink with a little umbrella in it. :D

    I just got Ricochet and I CANNOT believe all the fuss over the guy. :lol : I took one good look at his face and didn't mind the "worst" nose non-paintjob. It's just a small meaningless thing, BUT if I get the chance to come across some paint that matches his face, I guess I'll paint his nose just so that it looks consistent. :)

    That "White lines" song kicks so much ass. I heard it on the radio the other day, while I was cruising in my "G"-ryde.

    You just scratched the paint off? There's no scratches left on his cheeks? It didn't rough up his face?
