Not-Shockwave gun accessory for 3 3/4" Joes. I test printed him in Purple Strong and Flexible and Black Detail. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. 8 comments
Like most customizers I looked at Jetfire and thought, great starting point. I didn't really dig the lots of little weapons look so I started with his gun, cut it up added bits and glued it back together, I also wanted to bulk him up so I altered his leg guns into some bell bottom thrusters, added forearm armor and two versions of shoulder pads. Most people like the vents better than the rounded shoulders. I used white mixed with flat aluminum in a few shades and a darker red with a semi gloss coat over top. The visor is a different red but it doesn't really show in the pics. I had to use my phone but I think the pics turned out pretty good. Thanks for looking. 5 comments
NECA has been showing off their new figures against some really cool backgrounds, so I was inspired to make my own. This is made from mostly foamcore with a few bits of balsa rod and some little doodads from my parts bin. I started by spray painting it black and then dusting it from above with gray primer. I let the paint fall down over it to help create a shadow effect. When it was dry, I painted in more weathering and dark shadows. The silver paint chipping was done with silver Sharpie. I did the caution striping by making a sheet of black and yellow stripes in Paint, printed it and then cut out diagonal strips.
Let me know what you think.4 comments
