Paint? as usual, Base urethanes. this build took me 5 days for the assembly, and over 4 days were invested in the painting process. Once that protective coat sets in, I am gonna be taking to the next step, molding and casting copies

'Tis always a prob i find with both red or green weapons. They look too toy-ish. Probably why i weather mine so much to break the colours up?
With my sense of humour i'd do a version with a mix-up, such as very battered & dirt covered red (showing damage near replacement part) & pretty clean camo (replacement part).
The best way i've found when trying to limit down the 'toy' factor is to either do as small an area as possible, find ways to colour details in another colour, & also make it look dirty so the colours blend together more. The dirty, grimy, oily look isn't to everyones taste, it just is to mine.
But I can't say for sure : I've never done any molding / casting yet ... only because I don't have access to molding and casting products at industrial quantities and prices. If I want to practice molding / casting, I'll have to ruin myself ... that's a shame, cause with molding / casting, I defenitely would add lots of details into my props ...
Anyway well done once again mate. It's cool props you're making ^^
What I want to say, sometimes it works, sometimes not. This one wasnīt a canidate for another color, but maybe another one. Btw in my opinion the M97-Viper looks really cool in black and lime-green
i know, now I see it clearly, the thing is, my friend gave me that red paint, and it was the red commonly used in ferraris. So I just went crazy man! XDDD i didnt think about it, and ended up regretting the whole process.
Now... if the Mattock was made... I'd be considering wanting a copy.
I like it and it looks realistic Haha ^_^ Good job
