    Wow!
    That is a really good build!
    I really like the paintjob as well. It's so hard for me to build from cardboard, but yours is perfect.

    Wow! That is fantastic!! May I ask, what was it about cardboard you didn't like? I'm thinking of different medium to work in for builds and I was wondering about cardboard...

    well it was my first time trying cardboard ,and I wish I knew wen you put resin on it shift/shrink a bit.. so if you do one brace it good inside so it wont move ,resin outside (like 3 thin coats) then remove brace and do inside , and you should be find , I didn brace so it shifted a little on me (hole for head) not that much but kinda suck a little here a pic at fist con with my raco
