Here are some pics of my PG Strike that I have been working on for WAY too long. I'm in a picture taking/posting kind of mood tonight





I made the decals for it. Took me forever to figure it out. I still have to blend them in, since they were a last minute thing. I already weathered it.

Pics are kind of dark, the sun was behind a storm.

What did you use to weather it?

I'll post more pics this weekend. Hopefully I can get the shield and riffle done by then. The Aile pack is part way painted.

Sorry, I didn't see this question

I used everything I could think of. Enamels, pigment, pastels, oil paint, watercolors, a Dremel, a box cutter, a lighter, superglue, Mr. Surfacer 500.

I decided to add some more detail to it. I got caught up working on other things, so the rifle and shield didn't get done. I'll take better pics today.

More pics





I got to stop taking pics in the basement


Still a few more steps left. One day it will be done.

Sweet build Jason. I can see this guy causing all kinds of carnage(sp). I got the same problem with taking pics. My patio is the most photogrphed thing I own :-)

Wow, that looks cool, Jason. I very "used and abused" mech, but I agree with that look because if real, the pilot would just pilot it. Besides, it's too large to wash except taking it out in the rain. :-)

That was the major basis for the dirtiness. I drive a 26 foot delivery truck at work, we have to take it to special truck washes to clean it. There are to far away, so I let the rain wash it :-)

I broke the Aile pack yesterday. I can't get into the area where the piece broke. I can't see if it's something I can glue or something that has to be replaced
