Just try to find me. I move like the wind.

Anyway, I've got Scorch boiled and poped. Hasbro really cheaped out on this one considering the limited amount of movement. The legs are solid and the arms have limited swing. He reminds me of one of those preposed ep2 figures. Heck even the Cliff Claven figure has more joints. He's really easily to take apart. After a boil he practially fell apart in the pot.

I have a feeling the long thin baloons are too wide to work as a sleave. They should paint up ok though. I've never had trouble painted over latex. I like the idea of the nylon stocking but how do you sow something that narrow and small? Probably by hand. Findswoman would know.

Yah, I know. Odds are I'm going to get my fingers cut up somehow. I have a clamp and magnifying glass that should help protect my fingers.

What a great concept for a scuba trooper! I like how the wet suit is torn a little. The chest plating and helmet look great and is very realistic as a diving helmet. I also like your latest hotty. I like the idea of interchangeable heads. The body is very anime in feel. She could fit in well in a clone wars tv show episode. I also like how her breathing tubes are on the back. You can't cover up her chest with equipment like that. I take it she is pretty static.

I like to think we have a friendly competition going on. So, I've got to hurry and get it finished before Gregorbian does.

The plan is to dremel off the armor of the Scorch body and put it on the microman body thereby giving him the actuation that Hasbro forgot.

Hey, i can hope they decide to do an Aurra Sing/Aayla Secura Catfight at some point in one of the new TV series, can't I? I wouldn't complain if they used the original actresses either :D

Aurra Sing could make a really cool Microlady. 8)

You can order them directly from Tamiya but they look pretty expensive. Stores that sell model RC cars would have them as well as stores like HobbyPeople or stores that sell Warhammer game figures. Walmart and Target won't sell these paints. Michaels or any art supply store has the micron pens. They come in different colors and sizes.

Your using regular testors enamel paint? That stuff is going to leave your figures sticky forever and in some case melt the plastic. You must use acrylics for paint jobs.

The stuff I use is Tamiya paints. They are a little expensive but you will definately see the quality difference. You can pick them up any hobby store for about $1.50 each. Also I would suggest buying a can of Testors dull cote. That will seal the paint and remove the gloss. Finally, I would also suggest Testors Model Masters acrylic.

Finally invest in a good high quality set of paint brushes from an art supply store. They make it alot easier to paint. Also get a Micron .005 black pen ($2.50)  for details such as eyes and fine detail lines.

Lots of cool Fetts here. That female one is very creative. Good job on the armor sculpt. Sculpty can be a little hard to deal with but you made it look easy. The chest came out porportional and not too big. I really like the burn marks on the cape. That sith lord is a little distribing. It looks like she is bleeding for the eyes.  :o

Nice and simple starkid. The only thing I would do is paint the vest brown. Right now, the blue doesn't go with the color scheme of the cloud car pilot uniform.
