    Nice chrome work, nice finishes, but too chrome look unreal for my taste, also the tires too gloss, provide little contrast to the body.. It just my opinion afterall, no offence.:wink:

    thanks bro! ahh.. philippines :rolleyes:  wish i were there now...

    no offence taken :)  yeah... the chrome look isnt for everyone. there is no paint on this guy, just straight VM. i wasnt going for the realistic look in any way. i was leaning on more like the 'lucky draw' look.

    btw.. i've seen some of your work, great stuff!

    I actually tried this a while back with the alclad chrome, and messed it up when I re-assembled him. You vaccumnize your chrome right? Never-the-less, yours looks fantastic. Reminds me of your animated Blurr.

    Heres an idea for you. Why not put the black chrome on the tires, and robot parts?

    I like this a lot! Very cool!

    I'd love to see a version where the outer car shell is the only thing chromed with the robot parts and the wheels detailed to the nines.

    Nice work! Bling!

    Amazing as usual. although the all chrome treatment does kinda block out some of the detail especially in the face. it might just be the light tho i dont know

    thanks for the support guys!

    yeah, alclad can be tricky if you dont have a good clear coat to protect it. i remember in my first attempts, it would rub off like crazy... frustrating!

    hmmm.. thats an idea. i know the blue can come off rather easily with some thinner...

    thanks! i've thought about doing that on a few of my other customs.. my problem is that i get chrome crazy :crazy:  and i want to chrome everything! i may do it though on one of my future customs.

    thanks! i'll have to start doing them in gold soon just to see how they turn out :rolleyes2 

    thanks! yup, like i mentioned to timshinn73, i may go into more detail with one of my future customs... stay tuned!


    hahaha! hell yeah, jabbawockeez! i hope they bring all the champs back so they can have a battle of the champions! my money would be on jabba and quest crew in the finals.. but jabba to win :D 

    ok, back on topic... hehehe. the white gloves were used so i dont get my greasy fingerprints on the chrome while taking pictures! when did you send that PM? i didnt have anything in my inbox, can you please send again?

    nah.. not the light but more like the camera. im using a sony 5MP camera thats over 5 years old. i think it takes crappy pictures. i seiously need to stop messin around and just buy a new camera :)  thanks for the support!

    take a browse through this thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/225769-sound-vacuum-goes-woooooooooooo.html i explain my methods in there... i believe its on page 2.
