First custom. Neca Turtle.

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey. This is my first try at customizing a figure. I used a lot of the tutorials on the site which were very helpful.
This was an ugly badly painted green bootleg Neca Turtle. I stripped him completely, sanded and prepped all the joints etc. And have tried to paint him like the large scale sculpt of the Neca B&W Turtles.
I didn't think the final retail ones looked as good as they could have. I loved all of the detail and scratchy black lines on the sculpt as it looked just like the comic.
I've used the super glue trick on the joints so I can still pose him. Not sure if I want to clear coat him yet or not.

Anyway. He needs a bit of cleaning up but here he is.

Thanks guys. I have two I need to take pictures off and get up. Just a few little bits to finish and I will stick them in the showcase.
Thanks again for the compliments.

Sorry about that. I didn't think he was quite done. I guess he does look pretty much there.
I will post him in the showcase once I have his weapons done.

Thanks for the kind words.

Nice work man, the black and white look is perfect............. for future reference, we don't really allow completed customs in the workstation but seeing as you haven't included weapons etc, I'll let it slide as a wip... I'd love to see him submitted to the showcase .
