  1. Chop Shop (bodies, vehicles)
    I have an extra GI Joe AT Mobile Support Vehicle cab that I want to customize. New paint, decals etc. I need to remove the wheels in order to get a clean paint job. Not quite sure how to remove. They don’t have the usual end cap nuts like on Tonka tricks. Thought I’d ask if anyone has any...

    Hi, I have a headsculpt I bought in China that has two minor scratches that have damaged the painting work in the hair area. I have repainted those small areas with acrylic paint and I would like to apply to the head some spray varnish to protect all the paint of the head, ( being it so prone to...

    Tony Montana (Scarface(1985)). Kitbash with custom head paint job (my first full head paint job). Wrong gun.
  4. Custom Tips & Techniques
    Hey guys so I'm wondering if anyone has used any of these clear coats on their figures with success or failure. I'm painting on Hot Toys 1/6 Predator figures, which I assume are made of part hard plastic (arms and legs) and then a soft plastic vinyl of sorts, maybe a urethane (head, body, hands...

    Could anybody share their formula for painting skin tones? I have some Worldbox bodies with hard plastic torsos that I'd like to paint the neck and chest areas of to more closely match some head sculpts but I've never painted a skin tone color before. Can anyone share their formulas and methods...

    I have older gladiator bodies by KP and ACI, and some of them have gray/green discoloration on the limbs. I've seen that this is a common problem that develops from the paint used. Has anyone come up with a solution for this? It seems a dye solution would be best as paint would be rubbed along...

    Hello, I have a couple of base bodies that I would like to paint either a matte or semi-gloss silver but I'm not sure what is the best/most durable paint for the job, these are old school totally plastic figures so no rubber or silicone parts. Thanks.

    I'm currently working on some weathering for some Nam figures and was looking for some insight/direction. To date I've only ever found one video on YouTube of a gentleman applying weathering/mud effects to his soldier's boots. What he used was more of a thin wash. I'm actually thinking of using...

    I need to start this figure off with a big Thank You!!! to Mr. Carlos Quintana who sent me the Iron Cross second class ribbon, and the Winter of '41 survivor ribbon. This version of Steiner was one of the very first real custom figures I did way back in '06. The figure never lived up to what I...

    I always wanted a figure of Chow Yun Fat as he appeared in the Replacement Killers movie. The only accurate headsculpt from that time period was City Hero's, but it's far too soft and outdated now. Attempts to use that failed. I finally tried the Loading Toys Faris sculpt. Its likeness is...

    I haven't found time to make any 1/6 figures in many months, but I managed to put aside a few hours to add some battle damage to a cheap wolverine figure that I bought recently. The blood could have been done better, I was probably a bit rushed for time, but for what it is I think it makes a big...

    I was looking around on ebay for parts for another idea I had, one thing led to another and I realized I could make this for much cheaper. Still need to paint the staff and add more paint details to the hair and face, but looked good enough to get some opinions.

    Been working on and off on these fella's...thanks for Johnny Cannuck for the tip on the right paint color for the webbing. One of the things I like to do as well as paint the webbing with white glue and water or Mod Podge. It makes it nice a stiff, kind of like the real web gear.... Still a...

    An AMAZING Fig. Only complaint is what many are saying, the hat. I folded the edges in, and it looks slightly better. No cheap plastic, great paint apps..5/5 for sure! Hope you enjoy!!!

    Hello every one! Today I am wondering if anyone has a preferred ratio of paint to water for making a wash with water based acrylics? Seems I either make them too weak or to strong, but the stuff I buy at the hobby store is spot on. i hate to pay so much for what is basically a jar of water, but...
