hello all
I just have to put some finishing touches on this ball and I'll be done
there's a little clean up painting and some going over but all in all the is was a pratice in hand painting metallics(as a friend of mine said it could not be done) I will say brush painting metalics is a pain in the ass
But I found sone Bronze by golden . the darker silver is velajo(sp) aged chain mail
and the silver on the web is from a silver metalic marker I bought at wally world
oh yea the copper was from golden and I used gun metal from Model master's

hope you guy's like it
clifton













and for those of keen eye the last picture in the lower left(facing) the darker area is battle bamage as the primer spit these huge bubbles all over the top portion of the ball
so I made it bubbled/ dmaged parts I think it added to the model.
I wish I could do the color change of heted metal by hand brushing
 ok it's time for bed
please feed back is much needed as this piece and the other ball mod are oing into a model competition in OCT
Heavyarms custom would be an unstopable killing machine if the damn thing never ran out of bullets!!!!!

I like the colors you used. The handpainting looks a little sloppy here and there, but that's the nature of handpainting isn't it. No masking to keep the edges straight. Plus metallics show off every flaw. Will you be covering this with the armor?

You should paint the small figures that come with the kit and put them on the stand. Also since the kit is battle damaged you could find some thin yellow tape and write "caution" all over the tape, then stick it all around the ball. I've seen this done with other Ball model kits, and the outcome looked very good.
 build what I want to build.

Heavyarms custom posted this in a new thread instead of in his existing on. I have deleted his existing thread.

Do not make a new thread every time you update your kit. Post in your existing thread.

Do not use all caps for your thread titles.

Also your images were too big to post so I had to edit the links.


You have been warned and don't let it happen again.
