Cheers Steve , the top of the head was opaque but it was part of the head , it was a difficult piece to get on so it looked like it was part of the head so I painted it to look a bit more natural but that in itself didn’t really work but it was the best I could doThat looks great. watched the 1st Alien film from behind a pillow many moons ago. Is the top of his/her/its head a helmet with a visor ?
Steve the kit largely goes together well for a half and half figure kit it’s just the head that is the biggest problem , I had tape and clamps on it to get it together and it didn’t work and the opaque cover was really difficult to line up , if I had sat and thought about it more i could have done it better but I just got a fed up lolIt's just I have seen some images with a solid head and then others, as you say, opaque. Doesn' look easy to build. Either way it's a cracking job
Sure you could this is just washes and dry brushing , the mottling effect is just a wash over the base colour then a dry brush of desert tan to create some stripes , I based this one on the colour of the puppet they made for the movie but you could use darker browns so it looked like it did on screen to get the same effectLooks really good Alan. I'm a big fan of the films. But I haven't tried building a Zenomorph yet. Don't think I could do it justice.
Moni your far better at figures than me so I reckon you’d do a fine job on itnice work with this one Alan do like the skin pattern/camo,for it,
i did do one,but must i was never happy with it and did struggle a bit with the metal look to it,
so never did finish it,
