    Here are a few projects that I've been working on and off the past few months. These will all be on display at a local Washington State TF Convention this summer (CybCon). After the convention, they'll either end up in my collection or up on ebay (depending on shelf space). I'll break these out into separate threads with more pictures later. Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks for all the great feedback and comments!

    Thanks buddy! The time really all depends on my workload. If I were to work on a single figure it would take me around 2 weeks to tear down, chrome, paint and reassemble.

    The fun starts when I get to reassemble after chrome and paint. It's really satisfying seeing a figure come back to 'life' after tearing it apart.

    The chrome was applied via vacuum metalizing. It's a lengthy process but worth it in the end. Similar results can be had with airbrushing chrome but the shine isn't as reflective and durable as VM chrome.

    They're vacuum-metalized. He's made no secret about that.

    Clear paints over the chrome and you get colored chrome.
