    For those who aren't familiar with the original and V2.0 Masterpiece Mirage planned and created by customizer Jaf, Mirage Masterpiece - Alternators - Binaltech Customs - TFW2005.COM I'll say that this design is nothing short of brilliant. I pretty much attempted to copy the exact build with only a few differences in paint apps and feel it came out better than I ever expected. I did choose a different head which is much more generic but close to toon accuracy. The Hunting riffle and RPG are built out of all kinds of crap I had laying around.

    The paint used is, as always, a urethane water base cleared in a two-part catalyzed clear coat making it impervious to any chemical with the exception of, like, concentrated acid or brake fluid.

    A list of parts can be found in the "How to re-shell anything" thread.
