    Amazing! Wish I had a hat so I could take it off for you. Instead I'll make a little elegant bow.

    It's super-awesome and makes me wish I wasn't that clumsy, I'd love to be able to do high quality customs like this one! <3

    I wonder how much longer until people start using BH SS for their custom Fembots?

    So what technique/tools did you use to get the paint work so clean? Is this what the result of airbrushing looks like? Any rubbing spots or anything with transformation?

    I'm just amazed, because this looks sooo much like a factory figure or something, just so much nicer than any of my (admittedly shabby) custom attempts, or even a lot of the stuff I've seen on here. I'd love to know how to up my game to this level.

    Thanks for the kind comments about this project. I think she turned out quite good. :thumb 

    Yeah, almost all the paint apps were made using an airbrush. I currently use Model Master Acryl paint. Not as good as lacquers or enamels, but it works for me. You can see my process with step-by-step photos and descriptions in this Flickr album for legion Copperhead.

    The common rubbing spots on the Arcee mold are obviously the ball joints (shoulders, hips). The other issues would be when spinning her torso the shoulder pylons will rub her hip packs as well as the top of her canopy.
