Project Scrab, Part III

My experiment with EPS foam / plastic coated modelling is completed and I'm really happy with the way the Scrab turned out. The nice thing about the plastic coating that I bought (Styrospray 1000) is that it is supposed to work great with paper mache too!

Here he is with a basic paint job, before detailing with the airbrush.

 Spar varnish gave added shine and protection.

A peg was added to support the head's weight; wood screws did the rest.

The peg slots into the PVC support

I had a nice name plate made through ebay - quite cheaply.

Airbrushing was a new experience too. I think it really brings out the color of his eyes.

If you see this in the wild, you're dead!
