Pegasus solid vinyl 1953 ‘War of the Worlds’ Martian

September 2, 2016 · in Sci-fi · · 6 · 2K

This is the Martian from George Pal's 1953 movie ''. This kit was a fairly simple build. I base coated it in Tamiya spray bomb fine grey primer. After that, the hardest part was hand painting all of the veins and arteries on its head and arms. When that was finished, I airbrushed an overall coating of Vallejo Skin Wash ink, which worked so perfectly, I didn't have to do anything else except seal it with Tamiya Semi-Gloss clear. The base was also treated with Tamiya Fine Grey primer. That was followed with a coat of Future, then a wash with Mig Ammo grey wash for German greys. Wiped and then sealed with Dul-Cote. A little dry brushing for the assorted wood debris, and some work on the assorted parts.
