    Oct 10, 2015, 4:29 AM - Revival of my Mark VI #1

    Hi 405th

    I started my Mark VI back in highschool. The time constraint was a serious issue as I tended to focus on my prop building rather than the schoolwork in front of me :P

    So now, my first year out, I've been able to progress greatly.

    I will be posting updated pictures of progress here now.

    Thanks!

    From the silver I moved unto a matt black layer and then a matt satin green. All Rust-O-Leum products!

    In the centre is how the satin green looks alone. The forearms have been sprayed with black again after the satin layer and rubbed in with a rough cloth.
