Hello dear readers. Once again, I have the honor to proudly feature and present one of my close friend's work. This friend of mine goes by the Name of Decay, the Decaying Scratch-builder.
Special introduction won't be necessary as you all know the amazing works of Decay and you probably have seen his previous work. In any case if you haven't seen it, here is a flash back to his The-O.
This is , for Decay, nothing more then a relaxed built. But it would not be exaggerating to call him a great modeler as you can see from the photos. Let's see what he said about his own build, shell we -
'' I have to say this was a fun built, but I would still prefer a plastic kit over a resin, simply because I did not dare to mode this.
Another thing is that while I was taking the pictures, I was so scared to move it because once the wings are on it, it becomes very heavy and puts a lot of pressure on the legs. This is also the reason I glued it to the base. ''
There you go. This was the first kit that he used Revell Aqua colours, which are basically acrylic color from model company Revell and he said those revell acrylic works pretty well. ( I can vouch on those paints as I use them myself ).
He used them with both his airbrush and brush. He said that this kit is about 50% hand painted and that is the main reason he went for the Revell colors.
And he used hair spray technique to make those magnificent paint chips and weathering effects. And dang, those weathering are just too awesome.
Decay's skill has been noticeable in his scrathbuilding but even more so obvious in painting and weathering as he has spent the last 20 years, modeling and painting figures. No surprising his touch on this kit is no less then awe-inspiring. I am proud to feature the works of my dear friend and a value member of MAC.
Let's move on to the pictures shell we ??
