    Part 2: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/428258-leonardo-donatello-w-group-pics-part-2-4-a.html

    So heres a project I've wanted to do for a long time but the cost of the base figures was too prohibitive in my mind to do them. Thankfully, a guy who found me on ebay commissioned me to do them, so I'm finally getting my chance. For the basis of them, the customer sent me pictures of Speedlee's awesome turtle customs as a reference. He wanted them to be in the 2000s style, which was right up my alley anyways.

    So first up are Raph and Mike. He provided the figures, but unfortunately, he had previously tried to paint the bandannas in their respective colors with enamel paints. On the rubbery plastic of the bandannas, its never fully dried in most places, and in others it was extremely tacky. So I set about stripping that, and then gave them full repaints. Mikes black lining isn't showing up well in the pics, on top of him looking quite a few shades of green darker than he actually is, but I think he still looks good. Enjoy, more to come!

    thanks guys. The guy is having me do all 4 turtles, April, and 11 mousers for him, so the 4 are 1. Raph and Mike, 2. Leo and Don, 3. April, 4. Mousers. I'm going to see if i can talk him into letting me make him a Slash... for a nominal fee, but also because I really really want to.
