    This is my version of Toxitron using the RTS G2 Prime mold. I did this as a commission for a fellow TFW2005 member. I have to say this mold is a pain to work with as far as disassembly for paint, but I think Toxitron came out nice in the end. I used glow in the dark paint on certain areas for that "toxic" look.

    I got the paint from a local hobby shop called Rider's.

    I feel that vibe too. Perhaps a few touch ups of red, or orange.
    To break it up a bit.
    Cool work though.

    The purple is not transparent. It is a metallic purple by Testors, part of their one coat lacquer line. My picture taking abilities suck.

    This is what the person who commissioned him requested. He really prefers the metallic paint and wanted it mostly green and purple. Orange would have truly made this look gawdy. I added some flat black areas after some discussion with him as there was way too much green. Also I figured since I used the glow in the dark paint, it did not leave me much area for another color.
