    Just finished up the back and butt armor.




    I've done a few models over the years. My models minatures instructor at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh was Carl Horner. He did all the minatures for the film "Abyss". He showed usa all kinds of neat tricks.
    Believe it or not I have not used an airbrush on any of this RC kit. Its all chalk pastels with paint brushes.
    Then sealed with a satin clear cote. I like this technique waaaay better than the airbrush. You get the same effect but without all the hassel of cleaning and setup of the airbrush.


    Markus you have to post pics of your Sev!

    Not much to see GR

    I actually only have a very few pics of my SEV from my first testfitting, here´s one. The 2nd shows my attempt on the strange blue paintscheme (before any weathering or blood layering was done).

    Markus you did a great job on it. Just add some weathering and your there

    Heres some pics to help. This is me weathering my RC biceps for the demo.
    I know its easier for some to catch on quicker visually

    Thanks, but my SEV IS weathered

    The pic of the blue parts is pre-weathering.
    The one of the full costume pic I posted is the first fitting, more weathering was done til CE. Chris´pic shows my Sev in its current state, even if the weathering is hard to make out
