Sweet stuff! I would love to see this painted up - what chapter/legion are you intending it to be?

It is painted, isnt it?

To prevent any 'misunderstandings' if I post IN ORANGE then I am joking.
Thank you

I like the blue engine. It exactly the right colour (well the one I would expect).


although thinking about it, thats probably because its lit with the same sort of LED that they use in films to light the engines on big space ships (at least before they went digital).

Thank you

It is a black light LED in the engine compartment. I had wanted it to react with some clear black light paint I was testing for a company, but the LED would not cooperate.

The legion is my own, it is the Screaming Eagles.

Screaming Eagles, reminds me of "Coach".

I really like the shape, the pose, and the engine LED.

Being made from paper, the construction of the jet bike model looks great.

However, objectively the model doesn't look finished. The structures are pretty rough edged and the paint job is very monochromatic - so I have a heard time distinguishing details and 'reading' the model.

I think it would read a lot better if the value of the marine and bike body color varied more from one another. And more of the details had different colors, the little engine block spots, the boltgun, etc.

Cheers,
Kreuger

Not familiar with "Coach" (I know, it was a TV show). Am familiar with 101st Airborne. You are looking at a 28 mm figure magnified almost 2 1/2 times, so something that is almost unnoticeable at actual size shows up in these photos. Thanks for the input, though.
