    Nice gun. That's it.

    Work done:
    • Full-body repaint
    • Modded gun handle so it covers forearm properly
    • Scratchies
    • Partial panel lining

    Wish the actual figure looked that good. Very impressive weathering you did there mate.

    The weathering looks good. Are these pictures shopped in any way? the 'glow' just doesn't seem real to me and distracts from the actual work done to the figure.

    Be more patient when dry brushing. I know its easy to get excited, but you've got too much paint on your brush. The idea is to give the raised edges a tiny bit of color indicating external damage, wear and tear, and to make a convincing metallic effect as if the paint has been rubbed off exposing metal plating beneath. Usually you want to use a lighter shade of your primary color, but silver could work if you don't go overboard.

    What's with the glow? It's kind of distracting from the figure itself.
