    hello again.. here's another animated figure that was done up in chrome. like my voyager prime, im on the fence again on what to paint this guy. i think skywarps colors would look killer but on the other hand, im kinda liking the chrome look. let me know what colors you think would look best. enjoy the pics and thanks for looking :)

    Your using the Killer Chrome with sealer from Alsa right? Man looks awesome, I would leave it as is, putting over a clear black/smoke for Skywarp wont look as sweet as this does.

    yes, al$a it is... i agree with everyone else. this baby is stayin chrome :D . ive got 2 more animated SS that i will be doing, one will be his original G1 colors and i may end up doin the 3rd one as skywarp or in *gulp* ...gold.

    :eek:  prime is currently waiting for his paint (G1 colors). i just kinda put him to the side so i could work on some other things... terrible, i know.

    thanks man.. i'll get started on that PG soon.

    thanks!

    I agree, keep it as-is. Only thing I'd suggest would be to find a display base and chrome one up along with the 'Screamer.

    I know for sure they sell Gundam display base/stands at International Model Toys in Chinatown, and maybe a HobbyTown somewhere- just not the SouthCenter one. I'm not sure yet on how well they work with TFs. I planned on buying a couple for my Starscream Shrine but bought a bunch of paints for Arcee instead.

    Dude...this is so slick. I'd be all over this if I saw it in a store, or as an exclusive....or even if you decided to send it to me out of the kindness of your heart....that would work too...:confused2

    Awesome! Is there some kind of chrome-in-a-can product I'm unaware of? Because if there is then I'd love to try my hand at somethign like this with Cyclonus as my next kitbash.

    :cool:  thanks

    hmmm.. i may have to go check out those display stands in chinatown. i hate the southcenter hobbytown, they never have any of the paints im looking for.

    oh by the way, i talked to greg.. and he said it was a good idea too.. but maybe do a silent auction instead of raffle because of the stupid gambling rules in this state.

    check my ebay link every now and then.. animated SS, breakaway (aka fracture), animated megatron and animated prime (voyager) will be on there sooner or later.

    :eek:  uh.. sorry for this dumb question.. but what is the shattered glass colors for SS? im doing another 2 animated SS, one as skywarp and the other TBD (if not gold... err sunstorm)

    there are different brands of chrome in a can products.. but i can tell you that the ALL pretty much suck. you need to use alclad or alsa (mirrachrome) with an airbrush. alclad can be found in most hobby stores for about $7 an ounce while alsa will set you back about $20 an ounce. alsa is a little harder to come by (i had to order mine online). good luck!

    Give me the Mirage....NOW!!! j/k

    I say leave it. As for Gundam bases, they work, with some modding depending on you figure. Just get the ones designed for Gundam, not Gundam 00.

    You can't do a raffle at a public event because of State gambling laws? Wow.
