    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...

    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!

    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.

    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.

    [​IMG]

    after that a layer of No.48 Gloss - Clear Yellow of Mr.Color as the finishing.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    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.
