Isn't that just a bummer? Flashes always seem to have adverse effects on my custom, usually washing out all the details i WANT to have seen, and bringing out all the detail I don't (dust, scratches, etc.)
I was always kind of jealous of my buddy who had two (three?) Shadow Troopers, but I eventually got over it as I decided Clones weren't as cool as their fanboyism made them out to be. Nonetheless, I always enjoy a goodcustom. Is this made from an exclusive Utapau Shadow Trooper, or did you paint up a #41 clone?
If this is a repaint, it looks extremely clean, something I can never do with my customs. By clean, I mean the lines are really crisp and straight. I really wish I could see the highlights and weathering you put on him, because it always seems to be those little details that make or break a custom. It's looking good, though!
