The freakin best is what he is :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*


The Feeling is mutual my friend!  :)

Hours of decaling:





"Spines"













I used two "E"'s to make a black box. Gotta get creative sometimes! There is still a little red in there from where the paint used to be so I will add yet another decal there. Hoping to finish the decaling tonight and have the wash applied today or tomorrow.

Decals are really making for some nice detail.

What is really an extra level of awesome on this idea is the "construction equipment" look of it, like a industrial armed mecha universe creation, plowshares to swords.

I like that thought!  :)

I planned on doing a few more decals then a wash. suddenly I realized that there was nothing stopping me from adding the gray pieces you saw earlier in the thread (remember those?) and washing them all at once. So it suddenly looks a lot more put together and closer to the finish than I thought it would today-- which is pretty cool!









added the white tab "Intake Locks" as I call them:



Just measured and rattle bombed white real quick so they can be washed as well, make it stand out a little more. So Wash tomorrow I am guessing (Work needs to cooperate on that one) If not then, Tuesday for sure. Once the wash is on, its Flat coat, pastels, battle damage, and final assembly. Labor of Love I tell ya!
