So you aren't going to put a final layer of sealant on top, to help protect it from more unwanted weathering caused by handling?
Added the final layer to the back, possibly a smidge too green, i can hopefully deepen this tone with weathering. The wire wool rub down shows the colour below in places which works well, also started to add some of the finer scratches. Next onto the kill stripes...
Really good paint job TF! BTW, check out your time stamp!
Still need more practice??
I like the tone of the green back... as you stated, just some weathering and you're good to go.
awesome! eventually i hope mine look that good!!
How come I've never seen this thread before?? That is AWESOME work, TF!
I'm beginning to waver from the topical to layered method...
im with batninja, how did i miss this?!
AWESOME job on that TF!.......seriously one crazy layer paint up and it looks wonderful
This is turning out incredible! Hopefully my new MR looks half as nice when I start it!
Still think you need more practice...
WOW! This looks killer. Hope when i start a Boba it looks half as good. Good job!
.....The finished pictures will hafe to be turned upside down so they don't blow people's minds.
Just added the kill stripes, some powder burns to the dent and weathering around the rim. Detail in these areas was liquid masked to bring out certain colours...The final 4-5 kill stripes had a gloss coat added on top, the first 3-4 were attacked with wire wool to thin the colour down...
I've also started to add the finer details; using the end of a self propelling pencil (?) pushing or dragging the hollow nib gives some great results!
Wow, that is some fantastic work!
G O R G E O U S ! !
Wow, the subtle powder burns around the dent look great!
You know what I'm gonna say bruv... :thumbup
A months worth of patience and time, is all it takes guys. This is absolutely unreal!!!
I love the finished product, just blown away.....
