So a lack of self control later and some weathering here it is.also before and after

    Well, thanks a lot for making me suddenly feel unsatisfied with what I believed was a pretty much perfect figure that I bought.

    You should paint the top of his thighs white to create the illusion of a full waist. Plus the designs are the same as the vintage waist.

    thanks

    haha, thanks?

    Hmm I had that thought, but had a slight feeling it will turn out a little like Hardhead's boxer short look.

    Love it! Can you share what paints and techniques (airbrush, dry brush, etc) you used?

    Haha , just started out not Long ago so I'm no expert but sure.
    Techniques wise I used black washing and rubbing to stain and hopefully get panel lining done, dry brushed a few areas. I don't have an airbrush kit so I used my trusty paintbrushes for the rest.
    As for paints for this not sure for others but I swear by clag? Non toxic arcylic paint for my washes and panel lines it comes in a 250ml bottle and it's pretty cheap. And mostly tamiya's paints for this specifically light gun metal and mica silver. Hope that answers everything

    You aced the black-wash, that's for sure. For just starting out not too long ago, you're well on your way to becoming one of the more recognized customisers on the boards - your work is fantastic!

    I'm waiting for Reprolabels to give metallic/chrome bits to the right areas, so I agree that the TT version is a bit lacking, compared to the original TT G1 version.

    I didn't know the PE parts were out yet?

    Beautiful work.

    Especially dig the glowing eyes and weathering on the colors.

    oh I pre-ordered but yeah it's out already. Regarding to it being lacking , hmm sure it is compared to the toy. But if compared to the anime I think it's good . And I've not purchased reprolabels before , does it last well over the years ?

    Thank you
