    I chromed a Hunter Killer and detailed the hell out of the engines. I got rid of the missle gimmick and replaced them with 3mm Leds added a resistor and an on/off swtich. All of which fits very nicely in the "terminator compartment" on the bottom.

    I also chromed out 3 Terminators and very conservatively seperated some areas with black to break up some of the bling.

    Styrofoam blocks were used to create the wall. A peice of some random ventilation mesh for the fence and some rocks from the stream by my house.

    John Connor, was made with a Salvation John Connor head and G.I.Joe Dusty body. The barbed wire at the top of the fence came from Dusty also.

    The signs were hand painted.

    This was A 30th B-day present for one of my closest buddys.

    Very nice man, I wonder if you could polish this or buff it with a dremel? Would that help to make it shinier? It looks like it could blind someone if it were polished. Nice job with it!! By the way, what did you use to spray the chrome?

    That HK looks way better. What kind of paint did you use on the terminator fig? (acryl, enamel etc)
    Wanted to paint mine but not sure what to use since he's a little rubbery.

    Alloy, Asphalt, G60, Tobuttica, Ectoneon, 1980kid Thank you for the kind words!

    Sonofnemisis, I used alclad for the chrome. I was actually able to find the rattle can version which turned out way better for the hk since its so large. Which also was a problem since I only had clear for my airbrush. Next time I will use my sata hvlp or find the rattlecan clear. I actually love the finish on it, I figure lots of action flying about kinda weathered it? Thanks for the input!

    Chaosmuffin, see above lol. Gloss black lacqure basecoat, a dusting of alclad and clear!

    SQ7, swing your quaddy on by and we'll talk lol!



    Yup, he was very happy and is starting to pimp my work, tho I won't make a duplicate since this was a gift I already have 2 comissions for terminator dios!
