Talking The Red Rocker

I finally got it done. I have been wanting to do a Stellar Stiletto since I first got into custom toys and I am very pleased with it and very excited to share. I debated a long time about colors and decided the the guy who designed it in the first place knew what he was doing. It's such a great mold. The details are just awesome. I had a fun time painting them all.

I hope you like it.

Thanks, fellows. I'm really glad the retro Sci-Fi vibe came through. I figured a good retro spaceship needed two things. Lots of fire power and lots of chrome.

I know that I often speak ill of Tamiya paints, but, I love what happens when you hit their flat red with a black wipe and buff it to a gloss. You can really work some cool finishes with Tamiya. I just wish it didn't chip so easy. It also takes 3-4 months to cure fully. It's kind of neat to see how the color deepens as it does cure, though.

Thanks for the comments.
