Really lovely model - The two shades of grey work really well, very subtle. Can't wait to see it finished!

Beautiful weathering! Great photos too, so crisp and clear. Really nice idea. You gunna do the crew and the tactical squad eventually, too?

This is looking sweet already! What was the original model? Looking forward to seeing this progress.

I agree with the comment about the base, but the model itself is really cool, great job on the weathering! 2006? That's 5 years ago  :P Well done on finally doing it!

No studio needed. Just a well-lit wall (a couple clamp-lamps for multiple light sources) with a backdrop cloth (cansun paper or cheap fabric remnants will do) taped to it will suffice.

Yesss absolutley - When I was photographing my Sinanju I just stuck a bit of A1 paper to the wall for the infinity curve and used a daylight lamp (blue-ish) on one side and a tungsten lamp (orange-ish) on the other, which seemed to work quite well. I'd imagine for a large model like this it would be best to use fabric for the curve.

Niiiiice.. Although I can see the fantastic technique in the painting of this monster, It just wasn't standing out enough for me in the images and I couldn't figure out why until about thirty seconds ago.. Your brown table is doing your WIP photos no favours!

This is going to look excellent in the final pictures. Well done chap.

Lol, bit of a far cry from the 1/35 Ex-s... This is cute, I like it.

This is nice, I like where you're going with the colours - I think the grey and yellow combo works really well.

Just a few things, personally I think the camo pattern on the shield works better than the squares everywhere else - for me they kind of read too much as individual squares than as a pattern on a surface. Also the whole model could use some panel lines to bring out that detail!

Well done.

Ohhh, this is really nice. It looks evil! Nice job, the paint chipping isn't too over the top, and the colours work well. Awesome stuff.

It's probably about as dangerous as using the computer fans for the home made spray booth...

The last line of the product description sounds shady.

Product Description
Model SB-510 Features: Lightweight (Under 7 lbs.) Compact (Requires Minimal Table Space) Portable (Carrying Handle) Quiet (Only 68 db) Easy to Assemble 15" Exhuast Extention. Specifications: Fan Power: 20 Watts Voltage: 110 Volts Air Flow: 50 LFM Dimensions when Set-Up: 18.5" Wide x 24" Deep x 11" High Dimensions when Folded-Up: 18.5" Wide x 10.5" Deep x 11" High Note: Not intented for use with hazardous materials, flammable or explosive paints or materials

Not neccesarily - I would say this is approximately 10x more dangerous than using computer fans as Computer fans run on 12v from a transformer, this is 110v directly from the mains. Saying that, I use a 240v mains powered fan in my DIY booth (UK standard voltage) and I never got round to getting a filter and I've had no explosions/ shortouts yet... :-D

Love the scale figures. Great job - personally not a massive fan of the purple colour, but overall it's a lovely looking model.

Looks great, can't wait for more pictures. Gotta get me one of these. I love the care and detail you put into things, really brings it to life.

This is really lovely. Can't put my finger on if it's the design of the kit, your paint job or your nice photographs. I'm willing to bet it's a combination of all three. Very nice, looking forward to the finished product.

Maybe you're setting your sights a bit too high seeing as you're new to modeling, putting too much pressure on yourself. It's only a 1/144, you could afford to cock one up! I'd say just get stuck in at the deep end and you'll either pick it up quickly, or make some mistakes and learn from them.
