I have a bunch of new stuff to show off, but I want to wait for next week. :)
Seriously... I'm surprised I finished anything this week. Last Monday, I pulled my back or threw it out...and it has been hurting really bad since. Funny fact, I paint standing up. So all the work you see here represents tons of hours of me on my feet. (at least that allows my spine to decompress...right?)
Here is a job I completed last week, but did not show off here yet. It's a custom GI JOE Dragonfly Helicopter. Done in the post apocalypse / Mad Max / Dreadnok style.

Hey wait! How do those skulls stay balanced on the wings?

So I wanted to do something special with the cockpit. I wanted to "tint" it so I first sprayed my sealer inside, and then before it dried I gave it a light dusting of flat black spray. This tinted it perfectly....and pretty even.
BUT!!!! I wanted more. So I drilled holes in it, painted up some cracks and then splattered blood on the inside. Now it looks like someone was shot inside.
|This is after tint and drilling and blood stains. Before bullet hole cracks.|
|This is the final product of a lot of careful work. See the cracks and bullet holes. Now they look real!|
This is one of those customs you need to see in person. It has lots of fine detail. It was a fun project. Thanks Brett.
NOW... on to a Sky Striker...
Next week, I will have some nice vintage 1970s Plastic Army Men tanks to show off. You will be amazed at how cool I can make them look. I swear....they are so common that people throw them out. I am now picking them up, giving them some love, and making them RAD again!
