    Phew..One more down. Been getting a lot of questions on this. Why does Sabrina disappear only to come back with customs one after another in a short period...

    Well, I customize stuff in a old school ford production kind of style. I basically take a bunch of toys and unassemble them all at one area.

    From there, I move on to any mods (if any). I rarely move on to any new stage until all are done at the present stage.

    Next will be the prep part. All the sanding, cutting, washing and whatsoever falls within that category.

    Then goes the first coat of primer. Followed by more cutting and sanding if necessary.

    Then this is where all the base coats and prep works for the metallics come in. (baking, layering, buffing and etc etc). This stage takes the most amount of work and effort.

    From there, I usually have a cool off period for the batch for at least 1 week before I clear coat them.

    During this period, I return back to the unassembling stage and work to and fro between the new toys and completed customs. So after these few customs, I will probably disappear for another 2-3 weeks (or longer) or so. LOLZ.

    Looks great. That Metallic Blue looks absolutely incredible on that figure. I'd agree to say adding some yellow to the eyes might make it look even better!

    Awesome work!

    A little more yellow in the eyes I'd like but other than that nitpick, incredibly stunningly beautiful. I. Love. Him.

    YEAH RIGHT! :p  Boxset just got a little closer to completion. :D
