It's looking brilliant! Which colours did you use for the metal and copper/brown parts? The weathering looks spot on! Looking forward to the next update!

Sweet Chesus, this is looking nice!!! That copper color really sells it. Do you have plans to add that burnt metal blue color to the copper? The whole thing is looking perfect!

Those look amazing.
To get that burnt metal look on the carapace, we used interference paints on the original maquette and full sized statue.
Black paint was laid down first, followed by multiple passes of different colors of interference paints.
We looked at pictures of hot motorcycle exhaust pipes as reference.

I use Gunze Mr Metal colours. Copper as base colour. Added some spots of different metal colours like bronze. And then a light wash to tune down the brightness.

I've never seen the lifesize model in person, so I can only use pictures of an exhebition and screenshots for colour reference…It's difficult to see the iridescent effect.

Missed your thread for some reason:oops: Pro-Job on that wonderful model...er, wait! You ARE Phil Tippet, right?:p:cool::cool:
Thanks!
