    Jul 18, 2013, 2:29 PM - How does it look so far? #1

    Here's a pic.


    Its made from thick styrene by hand. And I used a lighter to melt the dents in a shape it. Does it look ok? I painted the green with spray paint and the yellow and silver are paint pen.

    It looks pretty good! If you can, fix the yellow scratches into something close to an orange color. Keep up the great work!

    I don't know if you can see it but I kinda colored the top section in orange. Is that better or too orange?

    Here's everything so far. I made the cape at work today. I'll have to touch up the paint tomorrow. Hoping to build the flak vest tomorrow as well!

    As sleepalot said, the orange is too dark, so you have to combine (somehow) the 2 colors to get the right shade.
