Looks damn nice. The face, IMO, looks the best. I like the shading and what not.

Looks Great!!

Keep up the good work!!

I like the "wheelie" look.

Your bases look nice too.

Paint job looks great, the base looks great, lots of things on this model are deserving of praise. My only criticism is the pose. I'm not a big fan of bikers doing seemingly static wheelies. Just seems a bit unrealistic to me.

got to agree, looking perty, face in partic is good. If you really want something to help you advance i'd say things like picking out the rivets in silver and maybe drill the barrels? nothing major at all! well done sir

yeah im going to but i have to either try and paint them on freehand or cut down the transfers supplied by gw.

Yeh i want to drill the barrels ive seen it else where and i think that it looks awesome when done properly. Yeh the wheelie pose came by accident. I was mucking around with pinning and i used a thumb tuck through the base and yeah thats how it came to be hahaha.
Yeh ill go back and go over the rivets with some boltgun metal.

the face took me a while hey... after the last post i concentrated on trying yo blend properly and keep a track of a mixture thats consistent.

Thanks for all your help and knowledge it is really appreciated

I like it!

The only problem I can see is that the blue looks a little flat. Did you wash it or add an ink to the blue? That's the only critique I have tbh. Apart from the drilling the barrels bit!

Thanks. Nah i didnt wash the blue with anything. Is there any suggestions/ technical help to how i would do it? the more i learn the better i can get hahaha...

Yeh im thinking that i might go to the shops today and get a drill and drill my models from now on.. i have a few other models where i can drill the weapons...
