    Watch using the black acrylate or whatever it is for the godmaster engines. I got mine all painted up and the titanmaster stuck ever so slightly inside overlord and the engine broke apart at the screw when i pulled it out. Its fixable but something to be aware of. I have found that the titanmaster for highbrow is a perfect fit and nearly a perfect body color match for overlord.

    I just ordered the engine parts in High Definition Acrylate. Anyone else got pics of the finished product?

    Picked up the engines and am excited to paint them up.

    Also, I would like to paint the black part of Overlord's face blue to match the helmet. What blue paint did you use? Its a great match!

    I got mine in the hi-def acrylate a few weeks back. Painted up and just waiting for Overlord to arrive from BBTS. They're attached to a pair of Overboards. The finish on these is really nice and clean. The more expensive print is definitely worth the cost. I'm probably going to grab the rifle soon to replace the dodgy stock rifle.

    Thanks for the idea with Overboard. I think they are perfect for that. I'm going to grab a couple. :thumb

    Overlord came in today, so here's a picture of the painted engines installed in the final figure.

    He/She's looking great!! :D 
    Thanks for sharing, I appreciate receiving all these photos!

    Oof, I'm sorry to hear that.
    I know some BHDA parts could feel fragile, and I suspect it might be due to the material being not fully cured.
    Thanks for the Highbrow tip!

    It's a Gunze Sangyo lacquer Blue called FS15050 if I recall correctly. Thanks!

    Prepped and painted them yesterday. They should be ready for Titan Master bodies when I get home from work tonight.
    The High Definition Acrylate is outstanding, can't even tell these were printed parts!

    Forgot to mention I used Tamiya Silver Leaf TS-30 and Tamiya Gold Leaf X-12. Came out perfect.

    Very nice updates! I just ordered the power masters and the rifle. Would you consider designing forearm/wrist fillers too? I would buy those in a minute! :)

    Ended up using a cheap blue craft paint from Walmart for the head (which actually matches the blue plastic more than the factory blue paint lol), and swapped the Titanmasters for Overlord and Black Shadow around so that the sculpts that were made to be Mega and Giga properly have the engine bits. Put Overlord's face onto my spare Overboard and Black Shadow's onto my spare Apeface.
