    Looking really good dude. I like the vibrancy of the colors you're using a lot.

    really admire ur prep work but all the initial shines were lost under the weathering.
    but it's still a wip, let's see what magic u'll turn it out.
    looking forward to see ur finish.

    Are you referring to the metal skeleton loosing shine? Yes, this will happen when weathered, but shiny bits are peaking through. If you watch the movie, his skeleton isn't very shiny but has bits of metal glinting through the dirt.

    I have successfully used the flame stencils on the forearm armor. It's an involved process, but with patience, you get fantastic results. I will be doing the rest of the flames today, and will post updates on those as well. This is coming out nicely.

    I was hoping someone would notice the wiper weathering. :wink:  To say lots of patience went into it is an understatement. I had no idea what I was doing when I started. I have never done a custom before. I had to strip a few pieces of their paint like 5 times. :p  I think I have gotten my technique down now though.

    I am going to attempt it. I'm still looking at options to achieve it. I tried a small brush and enamel, but couldn't control my hand steady enough. Looking into Pigma Micron Pins to attempt it now.

    Not to sure the micron pens will work to well. I think they run with a clear coat applied. Maybe a gundam marker?

    Even if you dont pinstripe, this is one insane custom.
