    Somethings just go together. Beans and Rice, Beer and baseball, Scougre and Cyclonus. I'm doing detail work on the face now, but I thought I would show where I am so far with the rest of him.

    I used a 2 part paint process to get the white extra clean. I used Krylon Fusion Gloss White first, then a full 24 hors later, I sanded the corners and ares that will rub, washed the pieces, and went back over them with a Krylon Satin Bright White. It looks nice and clean up close.

    Yes, he will have a goatee.

    Thanks for looking. C & C always welcome. :thumbs2:

    Can't wait to see how this turns out. Sounds like your process is a pretty good one. Now let's see the head you're using

    I think the head mod is what will make this come together for me.

    The little satellite looking thingy is "Sweep", his personal external memory/satellite-multi-purpose gadget he uses for tracking and data relay.

    I'm keeping the head a secret til' him and Cyclonus are finished. So far so good. :thumbs2:

    I would base it off what you want to do with the head, to make it Scourge-like. Plus, I myself have HUGE hands, so working with a larger mold makes it easier for the brush painting details (not as many touch up's needed for clean lines, etc)

    Ii guess it comes down to personal preference.

    Not a lot of people can do justice to white. You are definitely doing it. Great job so far, can't wait to see it and Cyclonus finished.
