Can't wait to see how the paint turns out. Great work

What grit paper are you using to sand between coats?
I'm actually using the 1000 grit but I'm not really having an issue with the paint not sticking. Guess I got lucky for once.

Now, Dave and Lem, at this stage if you feel you'd like a few things tweaked give me a shout either here or by pm. Again, this is base colors only. Hope you guys are liking the direction they're both taking. I'm fairly happy with them so far.

The leathery sculpt around the crown and jawline were fairly simple. I peeled back the masking tape and laid down two light layers of drybrushing over the black primer. I went heavier on the copper bio so it would show a more. Some areas also recieved some airbrush shading as well. I'm in the final stretch and very excited about it all.
Tell me what you guys think . . .

Visors can sometimes be a pain. You find your proffered plastic, mesh, and tint. You sandwich em together and your halfway done. The pain is hot gluing them in. You hold, glue, bend, glue, hold and glue some more. If you don't have decent control of the glue gun or visor it could turn into a big mess. The best tip I can give you is to practice fit the visor in the bio. Practice getting an even flow of glue from you gun on card stock and then give it a try for real.
Now, the final bio . . .
I took the bios overall color scheme and used it to paint the snout insert. I really enjoyed doing this one and hope Dave likes it as much as I do.
Next, up the silver bio!
