Thanks, Thunderbird!!Great work! You really captured the metallic look and color of his costume. So Cool! Curious to know if you stuffed his body with anything or did you leave him hollow? I'm going to build a vinyl kit and was debating if I should fill it or not.
I swear by the expanding foam, I used gun metal as well.Thanks, Griffworks!!
I went to Home Depot and purchased a can of expanding foam. They had three to choose from so I went with the middle one. It worked very nicely. Only cost $4.00 plus tax.
I mixed my own color starting with a base of Tamiya Gun Metal acrylic. Once I had the base coat finished, I sprayed a wash of Semi-Gloss Black over the suit to darken some areas and it really helped give me the look I wanted.
Thanks, Mark!! I've enjoyed all the Batman movies except the second Michael Keaton... did not like that one at all.... and the last one with Heath Ledger as the Joker... he did a terrific job, but overall, was just way too dark for me!I can't stand to look at it, deek. Oh, your modeling is superb - but I hated Val Kilmer as Batman.
