    Hey all, ordered Fakebusters Scrapalets from Shapeways and put a little paint on em.

    Unfortunately, my camera flash did some nastiness and is really reflecting of the metal particles in the paint so the photos aren't that great. I'll try taking some natural light photos tomorrow and see how they turn out. Also, one suffered a little mishap prior to final assembly and is still in the paint shop for repairs. The set ships with five.

    Really love these little guys! Nice job Fakebusker!!! Thanks for creating these!

    EDIT...Just realized it's Fakebusker83 not Fakebuster. Sorry

    Thanks guys! The blue is Model Master Acrylic Flat White mixed with Model Master Acrylic Dark Blue about 70% white 30% Dark Blue.

    Yea, ordered them in the Frosted Ultra Detail. Interestingly they still have some very rough spots. Seems like the printing has a grain, certain surfaces are glossy smooth while others are very rough. For instance, the upper lip is rough and then the left and right sides are much rougher than the front and back.

    Ah, I must have missed that.

    Seriously, nice job on the paint. You nailed it.

    And yeah, I laughed at Bulkhead holding Bee. :D

    Thanks for painting them up so well! They look amazing and I'm really glad the paintwork is able to bring out the details especially the eyes and the cuts on the face.

    Can I have your permission to share these photos on my main thread as well as my Shapeways entry? Painter's credit to you, of course.

    I agree with you fully on the material grain, even on FUD. However, the Scraps are so tiny it doesn't matter at all, even more so when they are so nicely painted.

    Again, great job!

    I can almost hear that "power tool sound" they make just looking at them.

    Man, yours looks so much better then mine (mines on his main thread). Wish I was good at painting instead of just using sharpies.

    Scraplets! Why did it have to be Scraplets! XD

    Good job on the detailed paint. It's very close to the TFP version. The problem is the optics were purple, not blue.
