I've love that ARC fighter. The army green color is very fitting. The holes in the wings with wires is a briliant touch. It makes the ship look more like a movie model. You've taken a rather boring sculpt and turned it into something to be very proud of.
Since my computer now works, I've updated Commander Neyo to be more accurate than before. His helmet got reworked and I moved his logo more to the front. I fixed his belt so it goes in the right direction and made the palton smaller. Finally, I weathered the whole thing as suggested in the Cody thread. I think he makes for a much more dynamic figure.
I've weathered my Commander Cody as suggested by you guys. I've tried to make more weathering lower on the figure and less up above. I've also worked on making some dents in the armor with some scratches and silver/ black paint.
I've finally gotten around to painting up my Cody. Right now he has all the coloring but needs weathering, chipping and his rank badge painted. Lets talk about weathering techniques. What is the best way to simulate scratches and chips? I want to have him look like he's been in a dusty environment. What colors should I use? How much of the body should be washed? Is a dry wash better and than a light wash?
