Since I'm a glutton for punishment, I decided to pull this guy out again in June, and set out to complete him this time. As most of you who own this figure know, to say he's detailed is a gigantic understatement. Everywhere you look, something jumps out at you, lots of molded details that to be honest, I didn't really even notice until I decided to panel line him. He was completely torn apart like usual, cleaned, prepped, and primed, and then preshaded using various custom mixed HoK paints. Then I went through and hand painted all of the detail work with Model Master enamels, mostly Italian Red, aluminum, and chrome silver. Then, I spent what felt like an eternity panel lining every detail in various degrees from fine lines, to gritty and grimy. Nothing was left untouched, inside and out. All said and done, I had roughly 153 hours of my life invested in this guy, the longest paint job I've ever tackled. I only wish he'd fit in my photo tent, it was very difficult to get the lighting right to capture all of the shading work. I won't lie, there were times I thought this one would never end, every time I flipped over a section I was working on I found more details to panel line. Lemme know what you think!
