Mars Forever! (RetroSF)
« on: September 02, 2013, 08:40:22 PM »
Everybody knows the Looney Tunes, and the bad character of Marvin the Martian!

RetroSF have just rekeased a splendid figure of that "quiet" guy...

Molded in 11 resin parts and 1 in metal (the legs), the figure is furnished with a base representing the Martian ground.

Easy to build and fun to paint... One of my next workbenches!

Well, studying the subject, I've remarked that Marvin used different clothes from his wardrobe...

Time to progress a little bit on Marvin the Martian...

After sanding, assembly was easy. I've replaced the visor of the gun by a piece of wire. I've used the "21" cyano glue; excellent power... Strong assembly!

The ground was treated as follows: to give a more ruguous, dusty Martian ground, I've put with a paintbrush Klir mixed with brick powder.

Well, a very quiet day; good acrylic paints (Citadel and Vallejo) and here is it: Marvin is finished!

It was really funny to paint...
