Re: Custom Baron Fel Kubrick - WIP

I realize that for some, PT Kubricks are bad enough, but the thought of EU Kubricks is probably blasphemy.  I'm sure that I'm going to get run out of the Kubrick ranks with this one, but I couldn't help myself.  I'm a huge fan of the X-Wing Rogue Squadron Series and was really psyched when Hasbro decided to do a Baron Fel figure.  Well, after aquiring my 3rd TIE Fighter Pilot Kubrick, I decided to have some fun with it.

I was all set to get it completed tonight but then realized that I got the wrong black paint this weekend (Black Ink vs. Black from Games Workshop).  Needless to say, when I went to put the flight vest back on the head, all the black began to chip off the vest.  So, here's how it looks right now and once I'm able to paint the goatee, re-paint the straps, and touch-up the grey and red I'll post more pics.






Also, I'm struggling with what hair to use.  In the comics he's basically got black hair in a buzz cut and he's got widows peaks.  I thought about just using the Han Series 2 hair, dremeling (sp?) the widows peaks and sculpting it into a buzz cut, and then painting it black.  Do any of you know of any other Kubricks that would work better?  I'm open to suggestions.

Are you kidding?  That Fel looks awesome!  I definitely like your custom better than most of S8 (sorry, but that S8 Battle Droid still rocks!).  Nice job!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the positive reinforcement.

Here are the latest WIPs.  Thanks to BrentS for supplying me with some Chaos Black so I could finish off the last of the painting.






I'm still struggling with the hair.  I'm actually considering just painting it on, or getting some sculpting putty and sculpting a buzz cut on him...  Thoughts?

The goatee looks awesome.  Well done!

Like I mentioned in my PM.  I'd sculpt the hair with greenstuff.

Custom 41st Elite Clone Trooper Kubrick WIP
« Reply #112 on: December 2, 2007, 11:26 PM »
Thanks for all the complements guys.  I appreciate it.

I decided to have some fun with a PT Kubrick this time.  Having one too many Biker Scouts laying around, I camo'd it up and created a 41st Elite Clone Trooper.  I went a little overboard with the brown, so I need to go back over it with another round of green, touch-up the black, and then paint the visor, but here's how he stands now.  Enjoy!

Well I went back over all the camo areas with green, touched up the black and the grey, painted the arm straps grey, and painted the visor.  In my opinion, it's done.  Hope you enjoy.

Looks great!  You should hit it with a Matte Varnish and protect the paint.

They look amazing!

I'm not a big fan of many of the comics (I liked Tales) but I did get the Hasbro Comic Pack of the barron because I thought he looked cool enough to join the ranks.

Great job, the Kubrick of him looks fantastic!

Should check some other Kubrick lines for hair.

Of all the other Kubrick lines I've looked at, the closest thing that I can find is the Arnold Terminator figure from the Terminator 3 box set.  It's perfect, except that I'd have to paint it black.  However, getting a hold of a 'reasonablly priced' T-3 set just for the hair is a bit unrealistic.  I'm going to try my hand at sculpting it from greenstuff (acquired from BrentS) and see how that turns out before I do something rash like buy a $30 box set just for the hair...

Do just a basic Kubrick search on ebay, there are a ton of things.
Or Yahoo Japan, lines you could not even know of.
