    Minor/Repaint: - GIVE ME YOUR FACE. [The Fallen Preview]
    Yeah, Megatron finally arrived after a long delay so now I can begin work on him proper!
    Though first, I needed to ensmallen the head-hole for the Fallen's face. Megatron's head is a 4mm ball joint, while Hoist's is I think 5 mil. Thankfully, I keep a few Daiso Petit Block kits to hand for just such an occasion.

    I cut off the socket from this piece...

    And glued it in place with some CA glue.

    Yeah, I'm gonna charitably describe this one as "not my best work".

    My idea of making the panel lines red and orange got kinda quashed when I found out the alcohol I was using ate through the varnish and smudged the black base coat right off the primer.

    Bugger.
    Maybe if I ever try this again, I'll just dye the figure black instead.

    It's a bit rough around the edges but it kind of suits it.
    Where have the missile pods gone?

    What did you use alcohol for?

    The missile pods are just sitting on the desk. I dunno if I wanna prime and paint them at this point.
    To get rid of the "halo" for lack of a better term - since I thinned the paint a lot and touched the panel lines for the paint to flow into, it left a small halo of colour where I touched the brush to the surface. The alcohol was then applied to a cotton swab and I rubbed it away - usually it would have just left the area spotless but instead it went right through the matte varnish. Never use the Kmart own-brand varnish if you wanna use it for reverse washes or panel lining cleanup on painted parts.

    ...dude, sorry if I'm being rude but this isn't the place to talk about what you want. This is the thread to discuss the custom I've made. >.>
