The :0 i've finished a comp entry before the deadline post
I started it about 2 weeks ago but have had a lousy cold last week and also pulled my back at work and to top it off got smacked in the face by a falling metal stud and slashed the top of my nose. Still a bit tender after 5 days but the gash has healed up nicely and you'd be surprised at how much blood you get from a little cut at the top of your nose. Anyway enough of my woes and more about this chap.
Second pic grey primer as i planned a new paint job for this guy.
I was i bit apprehensive blasting primer on him as i'd heard the pre-paints were prone to paint peeling and soft spots but so far so good. The detail on the 1/35 scale ma.k's arn't up to there 1/20 brothers but still not bad for this little dio.
bit for the longer term future of SFM:UK competition's and prize funds.
That's ment to be a future retro Ma.K version of a cruse missile by the way.
First was a light dose of hairspray followed quickly by some randomly but well placed table salt. Wish i'd used sea salt now but thought it to big for this guy at the time.
Most of the other entry's are hardware and not dio's so i decided as i like a back story and some sort of reason for the model being in that situation i would go with a diorama for this comp.
Keep an eye out for the finished dio pics coming soon-ish as always :)
