    i hope you like :) 
    please comment and/or critique....this is my 3rd custom (wfc prime and stratospher was 2nd)

    The silver really makes the detail pop. So much better than the original drab green

    thanks some peopl recommended using a wash on the wing.....im not familiar with that so on both sides of the wings....i diluted some acrylic metallic blue (walmart craft paints) filled in the wings, then tapped some diluted metallic black onto it nd let it dry, kinda gave it a stained glass window effect :)

    Wow - that metal paintjob is so accurate - you can barely see the difference b/w it & the fence you posted him on.

    That should be standard, now that I think about it - if something is painted metallic, it should be posed next to something that IS metal!

    Can't wait to see the parabolic dish on the back & also looking forward to your spider!
