Got really inspired to custom paint my Marvel Legends Hulkbuster Build-A-Figure (BAF) a couple of days ago after seeing some of the collectors/customizers doing so onto theirs. What Hasbro gave us was basically a hunk of plasticky-looking (otherwise greatly sculpted) action figure. To do this figure justice, you kinda have to apply the paint that he truly deserved. Just take a look at the comparison picture below, do you see how he looks like before AND after?
Ok, for those who had sent me messages on my fb and flickr page on the type of paint used to custom paint the sucka'....I basically used a combination of Citadel and Tamiya acrylic paints. To get the metallic red effect, I first used chrome silver as the undercoat and later clear red over it. Hope this little pointer helps guys!
I wish I have the time to accept the requests being put forward by some of my ML collector buddies for me to repaint theirs. Money ain't the issue here (of course I'm asking for some for my painting skills...hahaha) but time isn't just on my side these days.
