A commissioned job by a friend. Just to share it
Take this how you will, but my heart skipped a beat when I saw the preview thumb, b/c it looked like a pic of a movie render...
Damn this looks good. I have to paint mine.
that looks great. I really like the color you used, what it is man?? Not that im gonna steal your idea. Im done painting this mold.... gone through like 10 of em trying to get the one that I liked enough to keep
Well I for one would really like to know what color yellow you used or mixed. I have one primed and with a scratchbuild armcannon waiting for paint. But I can't decide on how to match the reddish/ yellow.
The blue marble and the foglights look really cool!
I forgot the eyes! They look perfect. The head could have used his voicebox/respirator thingy though.
Dude! A friend in Holland? What's his username? I would love to see this baby in the real! Very inspiring!
PRETTY! Good job, I love it...because it's shiny.
Thanks for the compliments, was away for a few days.
Holland guy is not from Radicon, he just got me to do repaints for him.
About the yellow I used, i'll tell you after I get my breakfast =)
Superb paintjob, looks fantastic.
That is just .. amazing ! It really does look as good as a movie render !
Cool, hope he's one of the guys from the transfanclub.net board or other dutch group. Because I only know 2 other guys in Holland who do- or are into customs.
Let us know the paint!
Great job and finally someone that painted those damn windows movie accurate, having said that you still missed a small part. The bar between the door and the side window in the back is supposed to be black and blends in to make it look like the side window is all one piece. The other detail is minor, the license plate, lol
Yea, I know about that missing part too =) About the license plate, I left it blank because I'm waiting for his decision for the number plate, he wants it with his car's number.
All right the paint for this piece, its Orange Yellow then.
after that a layer of No.48 Gloss - Clear Yellow of Mr.Color as the finishing.
Sorry for the late reply.
Thanks! I'm gonna try and find some mr color over here in the Netherlands.
Sure no problem. Mr.Hobby/Color is difficult to get over there ?
I've never even seen it! I'll probably end up ordering some from HLJ or that kind of place. The hobby stores I frequently visit have Revell, Humbroll and some Tamiya paints.
ok, I lied, I'm gonna steal your custom idea... Now I just need to find another 08' bb....
I have an extra which I only needed the head from. If you want a headless 08bb send me a PM
