    Boss Borot Repaint

    Well, I found a KO Vintage Boss Borot Figure. I don't know when it's from, I couldn't find it anywhere in google...but I must say that it's the best Boss Borot figure out there besides SOC...because it almost looks like they used the same mold. This one is completely made of plastic -pretty good one I must say- and has some limited articulation.

    Color scheme was a complete mess....so I am repainting it to make it look like the SOC figure. This is as far as I gone for now: arms, legs and head (except for his eyes) are complete. I began to apply first coat to the body, but I am not too happy with that brown and orange (maybe I should add a little bit of yellow in both....or it will look better after 2 more coats).

    What do you think about it ?

    BTW: this is the original Soul Of chogokin Boss Borot:

    It's almost finished. Only the eyes are left, and maybe retouch a little bit the body...but I can say it's 99% done :D

    I like the brown and orange that you are using. I think that the figure will look very nice once done.

    I think I should paint the inside of the head with black. I still don't know how am I going to paint the eyes...maybe I'll print them and them paste them.

    Neet. Although your figure reminded me more of Mazinkaiser than of Mazinger Z.

    After I finish the paint job, I want to make some extra parts for it: another head and an extra set of hands. I've never made molds before, but as the pieces are not too big or detailed, I guess I can make the mold with epoxy and the piece with epoxy as well.

    I agree with painting the inside of the head black and with printing and pasting the eyes instead of paint. I think that it would make the head stand out more and give him more character. Boss Borot was awesome in the show. I always loved the steering wheel that they used to drive him. :lol

    Did you prime him in a light blue?

    Nope, I primed him in light mate gray. Maybe it looks a little blue in the photo because it was a little dark when I took it and the illumination was not that good.

    Ok, finished it (except for the eyes). I wish I could give him a a metallic look, but I am pretty happy with the result anyways

    Your paintjob looks great!!

    I have that KO and the SOC it's based on. Also have the Diana A but have not been able to find the Mazinger to finish the set. I'd like to see what wild colors were given to Mazinger Z even if I can't get one myself.
