    Well, the final member of my latest batch is case file # 563,742,792,351,075.

    Crankcase.

    You know the drill.

    Only sculpting the fingers was necessary, so I was able to focus on painting.

    In the movie, the dreads have a coppery sheen to the black/silver body, so I used GW clear flesh drybrushing to achieve that effect.

    Clear red over silver provides a metallic look, while a few details have the copper-movie color. After drybrushing, a few coats of Clear Smoke were used to give him that blackish look as in the film. The vehicle didn't need much, but there are various touch ups like the hood hinge and tail lights.

    Finally a coat of Pledge Future was used for shine and durability.

    Thanks for your time!

    Very nice. About to paint mine now I've finished the mods, did you run into any problem areas / rubbing issues?
