This really has to be one of the most difficult models to clean, put together, and paint!
Hear you there brother, I havent finished mine either, i used my xacto and scraped the mold lines, and used a diamond file where it was really bad. My driver didnt line up either, and I did the same thing cut him.

You did an amazing job on the control console, the white lines on blue look amazing. Im not crazy about the heads they supplied with the ghost ark kit, I just used a praetorian head.

Looking fantastic buddy! The blue orb on the control panel is ace and the glow inside what I presume to be engines is very nicely done.

Alright,

So after having three college projects, studying for three finals, and my wife’s baby shower, I finally got time to chill and start painting again.

I finally finished magnetizing and painting the Ghost Ark/Doomsday Ark! What a tremendous PAIN IN THE ARSE! This had to be the most discouraging model I ever painted. At first I thought, “This is going to be sweet, can’t wait to magnetize it and paint it!” HAHAHA! I might just say screw it on the other two Arks, we shall see. Maybe after I tackle some other stuff it won’t make me feel so overwhelmed.

For those of you who PM’ed me about the metallic’s, here it is. All you have to do is water down you metallic’s to get a smooth painted look. I usually add 1 drop Liquitex slow-dri fluid retarded for every 2 or 3 drops of paint…or water works just as well. It’s really that simple.

Anyways, without further ado, here is the fully magnetized Ghost Ark/Doomsday Ark.
I hope you guys/gals like it.

Regards,
DoE

You good sir, are insane. +rep to you for the constant dedication to the ghost ark, a fabulous paint job, and taking the time to magnetize the whole thing. I feel bad for only being able to give you 6 reputation . I will be watching this

Great job DoE, that thing looks amazing, I'm fearing magnetizing my Tervigon/Tyrannofex. Good job sticking with it and completing it. +rep for an amazing job if I can.

That ark is fantastic. As the others have already said, great job on magnetizing the whole thing as well as giving it a brilliant paint job. Have some well deserved rep.

Regards,
Jake.

Thanks Midge! I would have to say that Painting it was the worst part. There were just so many edges and angles it was ridculous... The magnets did become a pain in the butt only when I was trying to install them on the central spinal column. One got pushed to far in and flipped itself and attached to the other magnet on the other side...lol, that was frustrating. Then it was like fitting a jigsaw puzzle together as the warriors were all cocked and slanted to the sides at different angles because of the magnets. I was finally able to get them to line up so they didnt appear retarded, took some time, but I got it.

No worries mate. The fact that you took the time to stop by and leave me some positive feedback is the real motivator! Thanks!

Thank you Sir. As for magnetizing your Tervigon/Tyrannofex...Troy has some good pics up on his plog right now if you havent seen them already showing how he is doing his.

RC, thank you very much for the feedback and the Rep. Your words of encouragment make me want to jump right back in and tackle some more stuff...however, it wont be a ghost/doomsday ark anytime soon.



Trying to decide on what I should paint up next. Any ideas? I have the entire range, no worries there.

I know I'd like to see you tackle the Triarch Stalker, but for obvious reasons that won't even be possible for a couple of weeks yet. But it does look like it's going to be a lovely model and I know from your painting that you'd do it justice.

Regards,
Jake.
