The recent release of the Lil Red Baron, to go along with my Lil T'rantula:
Not much to add to this. Built box stock, except to close up the tire backs. Of course, that left no reason for the little holes on the body where the now gone stabilizer pins used to go. The holes got filled with a dark red gem for no real use other than to fill the spot. This also allowed me to alter the stance as I saw fit.
Though the kit is molded in color, the body was painted Banner Red and clear coated. The pearl silver parts got a coat of Krylon Aluminum, and then a coat of Future. While not chrome, it levels out any of the swirls you get with molded silver.
Then some Molotov Chrome pen highlights (spike, intake, hubs...).
The pipes, guns, and some other parts (including the edge of the cross base) got a coat of Rustoleum Iron.
