Mark Dunmore has entered his Master Chief in the SciFiantasy 2018 MOTY Online Contest. Here is what Mark had to say about the build.
Of all the kits I have done this year. This has been possibly the most enjoyable.
A big shout out to David Flynn who provided the custom mix paint for the armor. I was having a lot of trouble getting the right shade of green for the look I was going for. Without that paint, I don’t think this would have been done.
The weathering was a combination of Oils, enamels and hand-painted chipping. The Visor effect turned out well. It came in 2 parts, an outer part, and the inner part. The Inner part was chromed and the reverse side of the outer part was carefully lined to pick out the honeycomb pattern that is molded on the part.
I have included a before and after the show, the difference paint can make to these kits.
