While I wait for all the bits and bobs I need for my full blown custom Nautica, I thought I would hone my painting skills a little with something smaller. The goal is to take this, and get as close to this, with as little work as possible. Hence why I've chosen the Takara Strongarm as a starting point. It's got a darker blue color plastic I don't need to paint over and a lot of smaller details already done for me (like the chest and hood), saves me some time and headache getting all of those small white lines just right. Speaking of which check out what's under the dumb sticker! Thank Primus, I thought I was gonna have to paint it all myself, but nope! Just gonna need a single small line to make it match the other side after I'm done with it. (cant do anything about the dumb circular indent though...) Gona start on this in ernest tomorrow (I say at 2am in the morning...) stay tuned bitches.
