    Here's something I did this weekend, mainly as a way to practice with the airbrush. Primed the louvers/rear leg portions flat black, airbrushed the arms and legs with tamiya silver, then used copper, gunmetal, red, and more silver for the highlights. There's a slight fade on the windows, from black at the bottom to gunmetal at the top. In hindsight, I should have used some silver at the top for more contrast.

    For finishes, I sprayed the robot parts with flat Krylon clear, and it ate the factory black paint off of the limbs! All the pieces that had acrylics on it were fine. Then I applied two coats of Future on all the red bits and the head. I think it turned out pretty decent, its got quite a shine. Thanks for looking!

    (and for those of you who responded to my thread about selling your customs, I'm keeping this one!)

    The Future shine looks good, though I'm not loving the copper detailing (just personal preference) but it's well applied. Nice job.
