Hi Bros , I finished this today after using 42 hours. Below I have described a few painting processes to achieve the final look.

There was a little bit of excess material on the mould which i had to remove and mend before painting. I added 2 plastic dreads on each side by using a baby drill for added effect. Next I added the air pipes going into the BIO which are springs. The lenses looked really common before so I replaced them stainless steel netting. I also added hand knitted black netting to the predator body to make it look more dramatic. For the armor I normally use a dark finish to begin with and then lightly brush the chrome silver onto the armor surface and then brushing it off gently to resemble the worn armor effect. The skin colours used were referenced from the movie and added spots were also done by myself. The colour used for the dread, matte black, also the rings on the dreads were painted in the same way as the armour using the brushing technique for the bronze effect.

What do you think ?

Thanks Jimmy ! , I used a varitation of different paints for many different parts of the predator. Firstly for the predator skin, I used Paints from Japan which are ( Mr. Color #318 Radomeand and a drop #329 Yellow FS13538 ) for the mix. For the spots I normally start with lighter colours followed with the dark to create shadow effects, the paints I tend to use are ( Tamiya Color main is #X-22 Clear and a drop of #X-26 Clear Orange and also #X-19 Clear Grey ) for the mix. I also added some darker spots using ( #X-1 Light Black ) for added effect. For the armour I used ( Mr.Metal Color #Chrome Silver and Tamiya Color #XF-1 Flat Black ) for my model, purely because I wanted the worn effect with a hint of bronze to stay true to the movies. But this is entirely up to your personal taste.

I hope this has been of help.

Sammy
