Ok disaster time I may have ruined my competition entry. I spray painted the removable costume pieces from a captain Glenn figure. The helmet shoulder armour worked great however the wrap around body piece has done that sticky never drying thing that happens sometimes with the wrong paint plastic combination. Does anybody have a fix or have I ruined a hard to replace piece?

Oh and what's the due date on the comp?

Sounds like the piece may be made of rubber or something similar rather than just plastic. You can try putting it in the sun (depending on where you are?) for a while to see if it can dry it out?

I think the comp is due on the 15th July?  Huh?

Out of curiosity what sort of Spray Paint did you use?


I have found when this does happen the only way out is to strip it off and start again unforunately.

Has anyone tried using Gundam model kits for customs? If so, what would be a good scale to use for 1/18 figures?

No idea?

It's always weird with those things as they say 1/62 scale....presuming I know how big a Gundam would be in "real life"

Yeah, the Gundam that lives in my neighborhood is a bit of a shut in, so it's hard to get a good look at him.

What's the best buck to make a custom Sif? ML and DCUC need not apply.

 Without a ML or DCUC base, I would look at a female wrestling fig, how about Ann O'Brien from LCBH?
