Discovered a wonderful advantage to my son using my computer while he's visiting.
I get more time for modelling.
This one is Major Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost In The Shell fame.
Was a resin kit I picked up from "Resin Plus" over on evilbay.
From some of the issues I had with pins and holes not lining up or being filled with resin, I can only assume it's a recast.
But, now, to the model itself.
Parts took some cleanup and grinding to get the parts to line up right.
Rough assembly was completed, although I left her head separate to make painting it easier.
Body was pinned to a small block of wood to act as a base, then primered in black.
With that dry, I gave the body a base coat of Testor's "Graphite Dust" from rattlecan.
All right now.
I painted the lady's face with Ral Partha "Noble Flesh." Then I did her hair in a custom mix of purple.
Gave the hair a black wash, then did some touchup on her face before painting in the eyes with purple and her lips in red.
Her eyebrows and lashes were done with a .5mm pencil.
I picked out a few of the "pads" on her body and painted them in with flat black before giving the whole body section a black wash.
Glued her head to the body, and was done
Ghost in the Shell, and the Major are not mine
