    Wanted to try something a bit different with this one.Keeping the original thighs was the idea I had a while back but was really hard to figure out..Half of the time invested in this project went on constructing his chest piece:) And then adding clear bits of plastic to his original tinted one to avoid all that meticulous work passing unnoticed,and then there was the paintjob..All standard grey shading but this time with a twist.When all was sealed with top coat I airbrushed some blue shading which was wiped off at certain areas to keep the scheme gray but with those blue reflections.Really happy with the result-even dough it took me way more time then expected.About two and a half weeks all together.

    The colors really pop. Great job with the edging, it just makes the figure that much better!
