Everything from this build is up on my website which is linked on my profile.You really outdid yourself with this one! I have a question, though. Are you gonna put the files up anywhere to buy or just for free? Because I will definitely want to swap out some of the parts of the suit I'm making with some of these (Particularly the belt!)
We are the turn of the tide for colourful dancing SPARTANs.It's HERE! What an absolutely stunning build thread, I'm hoping this gets more people into color filled, fun having, vocaloid/MkVII mayhem suits!
The Vallejo gunmetal is just the generic metal parts on the MkVII like the hard points and the Paradise Rig colour. The primary black/sparkle was the Krylon Stainless that you can see in the video of Post 8 in Letting Him Cook.Wow - This thread took me hours to get through (between doing other things and really wanting to soak up every ounce of knowledge you poured into it) and it was totally worth it.
Hands down this will be the top of my bookmarks and I know I will reference this thread many many times in the future. (And now I promise to harass you with fewer questions about my pending MKVII project).
This suit turned out amazing and I really hope to be able to come see it in person someday/somehow (Why did OtaFest have to be on Mother's day weekend next year?)
For anyone else reading this - I promise you that the files that Turbo made for this suit are simply amazing *chef's kiss*
The color you used on your chest looks awesome. Just to confirm it was this:
(not the Vallejo Gunmetal - right?)
I'm a bit bummed to hear you didn't have luck with their paint. I had tremendous luck with my Color Shift Command and have a pending project using some of their other paints.... (shh)
I really just followed their instructions for thinning the paint and going with their recommended base coats. I wonder if part of it could be that those specific colors just don't pop as much.
The Turbo Dork issues might also be the needle size I had in my airbrush at the time. I'll fiddle around more with less time crunch breathing down my neck as well as playing with the bottle of Redrum from them that I have in my paint bins.
