Don't know why I hadn't posted any in progress images on this guy so here is a brief summary. The base model is a Wave/Nitto Raptor detailed with parts from the spares bin. Model is textured with Mr Surfacer 500. Joint covers are Green Stuff Duro Epoxy Putty. Gear has been sculpted from Aves or Milliput epoxy putty. Straps are either putty or pewter foil. Cord and rings are .02" solder wire. Model is hand painted with Vallejo Acrylics. All weathering is with oils and MIG Washes and Filters. No pigments yet, all dust effects are from oil paints.

Weathering and Details









Still quite a bit of weathering to  work on though, especially hoses, joint covers and silencer.

Thanks.

I wonder about the guy that can sit through a David Lynch movie and say, "I saw that coming."

Bags look great. I always have a problem when doing blue for dirty models. Seems like the blue always gets washed out. Your blue is staying nice!

Thanks Mike - I use Valllejo Flat Blue and kept adding white to highlight the faces.

Mr.F - Thanks. Never much cared for your stuff either.  ;)  :razz:
