Hi ... depending on the size of the figure ... you could try a 'found piece' to start scratching the top further ... such as a medicine bottle cap or any plastic cap with the basic size and or basic shape and then add magic sculpt or any 2 part epoxy on top of that to finish to finally reach the correct shape :)

I am not sure if its just the images, but in the first image the dome (head) looks a bit more clear than it does in the other images. It could also be the lighting in your house that is making it look more solid. However, he is looking good so far. Great Job leyrich!

One of my favourite SF-films. I'll be following this thread with great interest. I bought an unbuilt kit in the 90s for quite some money as twas them days before ebay. Ironically with ebays new shipping "service", it has become so damned expensive that buying the old fashioned way might be less expensive.

Your rebuild is coming along nicely -- I like that you are also doing the lasers in the acrylic and with your lights it will look perfect.

Here is a copy of a paint color guide for you -- I think this is what they used when they made the mindstyle versions a few years ago.

Looking great.
Now for the next level: drill out the center of the eyes inside the rim, some very thin smoked acrylic, and behind that many superfine strands of photo-optic fiber connected to red flickering LEDs and you have V.I.N.C.E.N.T. show that he is sending E.S.P.-messages to Dr. Kate: "Get out of there at once. You're in mortal danger! Dr. Reinhard is dangerously insane".
