Wow, Ambitious for a first custom.
ambitous yes but as long as he can paint he has the building part down
looking good my man. looks almost ready for paint.
Thanks, the painting part is what really worries me, I have no whatsoever experience in painting ANYTHING.
I am basically relying on this board by researching and reading a lot to help me paint this figure, but I do have a bro-in-law to help me paint it, since he has some experience w/ air brush.
That's why I'm going for an air brush, even though I know it's not for beginners, I have been wanting to have my own Air Compressor for a lot purpose.
I was worried about the paint phase as well. I cannot stress patience enough and taking apart every character piece by piece to get a good hold and all over finish. Do not rush this phase, it took the longest but was WAY worth it! And yes, you must use an airbrush if you want a nice finish.
Get the airbrush and you can actually find lots of good airbrushing tips/videos on youtube or you can visit your local hobby store to talk to those guys. The guys in my city actually showed me how an airbrush worked and even gave me a chance to handle one before I got mine way back.
And now I'm indirectly feeling pressure to get an airbrush *lol*
hey there... you know where i can buy that bedford truck? thanks...
got it from ebay, somewhat hard to find.
thanks though... will try to find one on ebay... thanks again...
I reconinze some parts... as I willing to build one myself....
the middle part and the yellow leg I know... but the mixer-truck i don't
also know the base ... waist and such, but the shoulder bots I don't
I really need to build me 1.Super Pose-able 2.Can individually transform into bots
I couldnt afford an airbrush set, with paints and thinners and all that. So I bought some Chaos Black aerosole spray paints fo the base paint, and then hand brushed my Masterpiece Swoop. I know an air brush would make life easier, but it can be painted well by hand. Saying all this, the guys on here are pro's and I have only done one custom too. My advice would be to do some practise paints before you start this mamoth task, and take your time at it too. There are varios techniques to be learned and played with for various results.
Good luck man, i have to say it looks great so far. i cant wait to see the finished piece.
could you share infor on the construction or a link to a thread with these answers?
