    You should add some commentary to what exactly you have done... colours, which layer you added masking fluid to etc... etc

    heh, true =)

    my frend brought it to me much rougher than it looks, i cleaned it up first

    than i used a paint i use for my engine blocks as a base, Aluminum last blast, i masked off some small damage.

    then used a tamiya Haze grey matte for the "primer" layer over the metal look, did some more fluid here and there

    taped off the portion thats to be flat black and sprayed with rustoleum gunmetal hammered look

    ill be doing the markings thursday i hope and revealing the damage and adding much more

    because i layered it ill be able to pull away paint in the normal fashion of scrapes and whatnot.


    we shall seeeee

    THIS IS A RECAST!



    lol just kidding


    Looks like it's coming along pretty good so far Are you using anything like the live action shorts as reference or are you being a little more creative with the battle damage?
