Finally took some pics of the WF NONO kit that I recently threw some paint over.

To continue the resin goodness, a friend of mine asked me to paint a nice super hero bust for his brothers birthday. The Green Arrow mini bust can also be found in my gallery!

Hope you enjoy!

"threw some paint over"??  :shock:

You're too humble!  :lol:   Both figures are lovely, I really like the Green Arrow.  The shading in the muscles and garment is very very well done.

I wish I can throw paint like you.  :wink:

Thanks, MB! The results on the GA bust were much better than I expected. Perhaps due to the amazing sculpt. This was an independant sculpt so it's not readily available to the public. It'd be cool to see Bowen Designs, or Clayburn/Moore pick this up for mass-pro or something.  :lol:

Either way; had a blast doing it!

Never heard of Aim for the Top.  That Nono kit looks super posable though.  Man, those bolts and washers look like they're enough to make a guy go crazy.  Looks like it was worth it though. Nice job.

The Green Arrow should make your friend a nice gift.  Anytime you can bust out a comic book for reference sounds like a good time to me.  :lol:

Thanks, Phil! Yes, those screws were a real pain, dude. My hand hurt for the whole of the next day!  :lol:

The GA was a fun little kit. Had a great time staring at the all the old Jim Aparo and new art alike. Gave me an excuse to catch up on some comic readin'!

Nice work on the Nono.  From your first post about starting work on the kit, I actually sat down and watched a few of the episodes.  Got to 4 and I think the file I had was corrupt, so that kinda took the steam out of the series for me.

Aim for the Top is the beginning for where the "Ganix Bounce" term stemmed.  Gratuitous boob shots abound.  My favorite is still when Noriko flops down onto her bed, her shirt just puffs up from the movement of air giving the ever so slight glimpse of a bouncing boobie...

So did you pre-drill the holes before putting in the screws? (in additional to what I assume are pre drilled holes from the molding)  I just worry about trying to screw into a tight resin hole only to crack it.  

Excellent job!

Both of these look great Kevin. The only thing I can say bad about NONO is the visible screws. Aside from that, I want one!

Green arrow looks fantastic as well. Very nice work! Not overdone shading on the flesh which is always good. I don't like overexaggerated facial shading on figs.

Clem-Thanks, man! Gainax Bounce! LMAO!!  :lol: I think I read about that somewhere! Gotta love that fan-service!  :P

About the screws....yeah, I totally had to predrill the holes using a pin-vice. The resin was pretty strong so predilling helps!

FF-Thank you!  I agree with you about the screws, but I don't mind so much I guess. The visibility of the screws seems to traditionally be how F-Face works. If you've seen his other stuff , like the Eva gals, the Phantasy Star GKs, and most of his action figs, they always seem to have visible screws. Hopefully his next designs might improve upon this.  Other than that, the kit itself is amazing! :)

The GA bust was a lot of fun. Can't wait to do another "hero" type figure/bust!

Love them both Kevin - but, am I seeing things, or is there green between the two 'R's on the base of the Green Arrow?

Thanks a lot, man! Yeah, thats one of a few things that I missed and noticed after I took the pics. I actually corrected that before I gave it to my pal. i think there was also some primer still showing on the strap in one of the closeups too. Oh well!  :lol:   :wink:
