Looking good John! Frozen water, use a bit of clear poly plastic (the kind stuff like ham comes in) & smear superglue over it. Once it's dry, it looks like sheet ice!

And get your skates on mate, we've a 109 to build! ;)

One epic confrontation John....Me like!


Just looking at your 'detailing brush' above and I've spotted something that might cause a problem. Take a close look at the end of the bristles and you can see a small hair sticking out.


I hope you don't mind me pointing this out, because if it stays in it will cause streaking when you apply the paint!!!!

Almost done with this so here's a sneak peek but it's one of those that you could keep playing with forever I think but it's time to move onto something else now so I'm about to call time on this one more pictures in completed section later after a few little tweaks here and there thanks for looking in cheers John View attachment 102447

I'm liking that a lot John - those figures look to be very well painted.

Read the thread through and thought that the first base was a bit small... Got to the last pic and Wow, transformed. Looks amazing so far. You better get some great pics or a video up :cool:
