    Looking fab, this is one of many examples that makes me say that a topical painjob can look just as good as one using masking!! Way to go man!!!

    Todays progress :

    I completley finished the left cheek and the left ear.



    What ya think about the grey areas ? Is the color of choice to light ? The flash of the cam made it a little brighter, its actually almost invisible on the helmet

    Thanks everyone !

    Heres some more progress.



    The front ( minus dome ) is finsihed. I also repainted the back with a darker green called "Russia Green". IMO looks way better now. I am working my way around the back with the weathering.

    Another update Man I always believed, the back would be easier to paint due the big splotches. This segment took my about 7 hours in two days. I am already "afrait" of the other side

    I hear ya on that bro! I have had to walk away for hours, and do something else to keep my mind off of it. Very tedious and time consuming...

    Since I can´t find those funky named colors mentioned in the sticky post above, I use simple acryls from the local hobbystore. They dry pretty fast, make a nice smooth surface and are cheap.

    I use these colors, from RAYHER DecoArt.



    The silver is just called "Bright Silver"

    Other colors I used so far :

    "Corn-yellow" for the shoulders
    "Sun-yellow" for the shoulder-inner-scratches
    "Artichoke" for the chest armor
    "Burgundy" for the gauntlets, helmet-mandibles
    "Black" for the inner cheeks, blaster
    "Russia Green" for the helmet back
    "Bambi Brown" for the blaster rust
    "Cinnamon" for the RF ear
    Custom mixed green for the helmet dome and cheeks
