    This one is just for me. After painting two of these as Scourge, I bought one for myself to go with that third party trailer that's coming. But I just couldn't let the complete lack of detail slide. So, about 99% of this guy was done using sharpie permanent markers. There are a couple spots of black wash, and then the airbrushed flat lacquer clear coat. It was a TON of fun to do, and turned out better than I expected. Anyway, comments and criticisms welcome. Thanks for looking!

    Yep. Sharpie makes an awesome metallic silver pen. Just used that and an ultra fine black marker. A little bit of red paint on his shoulders, and that's about it.

    It can be tricky to get into the smaller detailed areas, but as long as you have a newer marker with a sharp tip, you shouldn't have many problems.

    I originally got the idea from THIS tutorial by REDLINE.

    Sometimes, all you need is some sharpies and flat clear coat. Great job! :)

    what a difference some panel lining can make. Much sharper looking.

    Wow... just sharpies + a clear coat? Must've taken quite a bit to paint then...

    Well regardless... came out great. MUCH better than his Hasbro paint scheme.

    You know, it actually went pretty fast. Just used one silver marker (which is actually more like a paint marker) and the ultra fine black. Eventually I'll find another figure to try this out on.

    I'm curious why you decided to leave the choppy paint job they put on the character from the start. by that i mean the black section, and the navy blue cab/doors

    It was never intended to be a full repaint. Just wanted to bring out some details that got lost with the factory paint.

    Thanks, I appreciate it! This is one of the few I like enough to keep for myself.
