    Finished the exterior of the planet mode, now the hard part, the robot and interior.

    Fantastic so far! This mold eats up panel lining. :)

    That looks so awesome. These panel-lined Primus repaints that have been showing up are simply amazing.

    I know this gets asked a lot, so shame on me for not archiving it in the Exhaustive Kitbasher's Guide, buuuuut...

    How do you panel-line? I used to just wet-weather a model kit and then brush off what excess black I didn't want, but I know there are panel-lining pens out there. Golgo?

    There are many ways to do it. What I'm doing here is probably one of the slower methods. I'm actually hand lining every crease with a micro 0.005 drawing pen. It does ruin the pens after a while though. This method prevents you from having to wipe excess off which can slightly change the color of the plastic in some cases.

    I might use a black wash on some of the interior parts I can't reach with the pen. With a black wash you use black ink watered down (I use games workshop). It will flow into the creases so it makes things go a little faster. Let it dry a little then wipe off the excess with a damp rag.

    This looks great, Golgo. Also, thank you for sharing your method. I saw this same thing done on another board, but the user was unable to articulate his method. Are you doing anything to seal your work (like a clearcoat)? I know some clearcoats can be harsh with markers (as in dissolving the ink, rendering the work useless).

    Again, looks great! :thumb

    Looks good, really makes the planet form seem aged. It does sound REALLY time consuming though. How many man hours would you say you have put into it so far?

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I haven't been tracking time because I've been working on it here and there for a couple weeks. I would guess 6-8 hours, but the exterior is the easy part. I expect the rest to take twice that long.

    I'm not using anything to seal it. Supersquad7, I know what you mean with the clear coats dissolving or smearing the paint/ink. I used to clear coat my 40k miniatures and it would always take something away from the paint job. So I stop clear coating them. I have found on my stuff that after the ink dries for a good 4-5 days it won't come off easily. Also my stuff sits in a display case or in it's box most of the time, so it really doesn't need the extra protection.

    That's cool. If it adheres well, then a protective coat probably isn't necessary. Again, nice work!

    He looks great panel-lined in planet mode like that, in robot mode wile neat, not as great. Really gives him more of a "planet" feel to him and your photography and pic's of him are truly excellent as well, really brings it out very well.

    Awesome stuff, if I ever find one on clearance for $12 or something I would definitely do that to one.

    Looks awesome. Somebody, someday, needs to do a metally-silver repaint of him all panel lined up. *NON-CHALANTLY POINTS TO SELF WHILE WHISTLING*
