Base Figure:Marvel Now! Captain America
Height:6.50 inches
I love the sculpt of the new Marvel Now! Captain America, but there are a couple of things that I was disappointed in. One I really wish that he could have been a little bigger about the same height as the Commander Steve Rogers figure, and two I wish he had a some more paint to bring out all that great sculpting detail. The first I can't really do anything about, but I can fix the second gripe on my figure.

First I started on the blues of his costume. There are three different shades I started with Model Masters Dark Blue, then I dry brushed MM french blue over that, and finally I dry brushed a custom mixed some light blue (French Blue & White). Then I sealed it with a top coat and then a dullcoat, but went back over the armor with a semi-gloss. For the gloves I mixed up some darker red for the base coat, and then I dry brushed a lighter red over the base. For the white on the arms I started with a really light blue and brushed several coats of white over them. I also repainted the face as I thought the flesh tone was a little too pink on the factory figure. I also added a little dark blue to the creases on the helmet, and added a coat of semigloss to the helmet as well. Let me know what you think.

This looks freakin' awesome. Love those blues, how they just grab you. And thanks for all those tips. Working on a Cap with a MOTU Dentist figure, an idea I "borrowed from another Realmer. Man you folks are just a fountain of ideas.

Thank you very much It's such a wonderful sculpt, so it's a shame that they skimped so much on the paint. The factory figure looked too plasticy, and it was begging for a some more color.

Always glad to pass along some of the tips that I've learned. I've learned a lot from my fellow customizers by observing what they have done, and I've been inspired by a lot of their great creations
