Interesting Josh, Very Interesting....

It's always good to see someone stepping outside the usual Custom box... I'll be interested to see how this looks when done and what others you have in mind.

It's nicely aged, but what does it refer to?

Cool idea, Nervous! I'm excited to see the finished product. And when are you going to add your catalogue of customs?

hey guys, thanks for the props...

i have wanted to make a cool looking diorama laced with mini statues, and things like that. kind of like a mini memorial park or something. i have done a halloween scene the last few years with lego, which i may add to this year, and a christmas scene too(just recently got a decent camera, so this year i'll take some pics)

Rad- not from any comic or storyline, just wanted to do a few different things.

the paint i used is actual iron paint, and there is an activator spray with actually creates real rust. it is pretty cool looking in person, a nice texture. you can put as much, or as little as you want. if i wanted to, i could just put a dab here and there and only a few little rust spots would show up (maybe on an old batmobile fender or something like that)

i also have copper paint which,when activated,give off a nice greenish tarnished look. i am going to do a captain america in that finish.

i have a few gi joe/cobras in the works too. a new gung-ho(2 versions) another cobra commander which i'll not be happy with again i'm sure, and some cobra vipers.

i'll update soon, thanks again for looking

hey guys/gals, remember me, i used to do customs ;)

cannot begin to explain how busy i have been.i just bought a new house, with my own workshop which i'd like to post pics of, so you guys can see my new miimate laboratory. i did have a little time to get some more stuff "almost" done. a few of you guys saw these at SDCC. hope you like :D

first up, another try at cobra commander, and i finally found the helmet i like, just have to paint everything to match, and slap on a new decal, and i think he'll be done

next up, a newer version of gung ho

next, a newer version of destro 90% done

next is my first attempt at copying my old dress blues, i have to rework the finer details. i tried to be as exact as possible with this, but the very small stuff like my ribbons, and the pockets were to thin.(plus i gave myself an eyepatch to look meaner ;)

next up, my redone jack skellinton, which i just never got around to posting

newjack1.jpg

next is a newer hawkman, with a different helmet

Everything looks awesome, Nervous! Love that Majestic! And that's a clever mod of Wolvie's mask for Hawkman.

You mentioned that some people saw these at the SDCC - were they on display there?

They all look great. I am glad I had a chance to see them in up close and in person at SDCC, even though the first time I was a little to drunk to appreciate them. Great work.

Gun ho and hawkman are my favorite of those, but they are all very well done.

Good stuff Nervous,

BTW folks the shiny gold/silver on the decals doesn't really show up in the photo's but looks very nice 'in person'

I really should dig the same printer out to make that gold spidey ;)

The Iron Man memorial looks cool (as do the rest of your Customs). With a couple added mins, you could do a classic Avengers memorial.
