    Too many straight horizontal lines on that particular chainguard. Needs curves like the body. Looking good though. I like it.

    That figurine is so beautiful, timeless, gracious,
    Those lines on the Rattilac always reminded of something like this:

    Not much happening, been working. Off the next 3 days though, so might get something done.

    You can't tell from the pic, but my lights are all wired and soldered together.

    And I'm getting the big alien hand looking rust spot taken care of, just a little touch up needed.

    I learned something about the modern masters rust paint. If you have left over paint, but no activator. White vinegar works just fine.


    Will get a pic of the lights installed when the sun goes down.

    Painted/pantina’d to match....I think it would contribute to the ‘lead sled’ lol of the kit.

    It's hard to say with it that color.
    It seams to be a complimentary style, but the color is too distraction in that mock up. Maybe someone can do some photoshopping with the guard in cream ore blue?
