    Probably not far from the truth. The stuff they use is toxic in its base form (and I believe illegal for consumer use in North America as a result), which bonds to the plastic surface, whereby it's baked on under heat lamps or some-such to cure it and render it safe to handle. It's definitely different than regular, off-the-shelf acrylics or enamels.

    watching this thread is like trying to view one of those high-quality *special* gifs on 14.4 kbps, hahaha. loading, loading ever so slowly... but so worth it in the end, hahah.

    jokes aside, excellent work, sir. i can't wait to see the final results. i can only dream of being so adept in the art of scratch building.

    Man, I really just can't believe how much better looking Arcee gets every time you post updates. The sculpting on that new neck looks great. I wish you had posted a pic of her with the new torso on your resculpted legs so it would be easier to visualize your final results, but that's okay, I can wait until she's done... actually I can't! Hurry up and finish this babe so we can drool over your mastery of sculpting!!!

    Like others have said, if this is made available as a kit, I'm all over it. Are you by chance taking commissions on her? I have medic as well. This is one sexy fembot....

    just when I thought I couldn't feel like a bigger nerd...now I'm getting turned on by a girl robot...

    Nice work, really. By far one of the most polished and well-executed customs I've seen here...and you've got some pretty talented peers here at TFW.

    HOPE EVERYONE HAD AN EXCELLENT CHRISTMAS!! :D 

    Thanks dude! more pics comin soon, I promise!

    Thanks for the kind words my friend! Yeah, the new neck does look better than the old one doesn't it? I'm kinda glad in a way that the old one didn't work out in that it forced me to make a better one! I'm gonna get some new batts. for my camera & will make sure to take some more shots of her with the torso, head & legs attached so you can see her better, just gotta wait til I can dig outta the snowmageddon we just got hit with! :lol  :banghead: 

    I cant wait til shes done either, believe me! Feels like I've been workin on her for like forever!! :wink: 

    She is startin' to look pretty Smexy, aint she! :thumb 

    I wish I could offer her as a kit but unfortunately sooo much would be involved that i'd have to charge far more for her than most would be willing to shell out. As for the commish part, well, honestly I don't think I'd have it in me to go thru doing another one of her again, sorry man!

    Don't feel left out on the nerd part my friend...I'm the one doin her ....er..."making" her & she gives me funny feelings too! :lol 
    Thanks for the nice words on my sculpting ! I'm immensely honored to be ranked with some of the awe inspiring talent here at TFW!! :D 

    more pics son, I promise!

    Thanks my good friend! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods?




    Sorry I haven't posted anything new on her in the last few weeks guys, I got slammed with this darned flu virus that's been goin around & really couldn't do much of anything 'cept sneeze alot & be all nose-runny like. Gettin over it now tho ( thank the Lord) & should be movin along again soon!

    Cheers guys & thanks for Hangin' with me this long!
