Thanks for the feedback buys.
Sorry Gunny but the money shot could not happen due to me gluing the hand parts together, so I couldn't get them to mount on the sniper rifle properly into a hand without damaging the paint work. I was running out of time and I took ages on the pics and waited to see what happens. I too was disappointing in my pics. Natural light would have been way better than my two spot lights that show up as yellow light. Next time will be different.
And yes Fury the camo was a bitch to paint. Blue tack is very pliable but messy to work with. Plus it sticks when you don't want it to and when you do it doesn't
No worries though as it was all a learning curve.
Other than that I had a few issues though out the build, one of them being the 6.1 earthquake that we had in Wellington NZ a few weeks back. Cracking parts, issues with masking, gloss coat and then finally the powdery flat coat. All part of the learning process.
The most important thing for me is that I had to post something as I've been in the GAF for a few years now and I've only posted one completed model in the catapult
I will be looking forward to any future group builds.
Cheers to Gunny for organising and sorting out the group build
