Terminator T-800 resin bust repainted

March 19, 2020 · in Figures · · 2 Comments

I bought this bust on a trip to London back in 1998. It had no box or any information, only the resin bust in a plastic bag. I think it’s 1/5 scale but know nothing more about it.

Remember this was 7 years before came about and the information on model kits was in its infancy on the Internet. Couple this with my lack of painting skills and you have my abysmal attempt of painting this in 1998 (hopefully you can tell which pictures are of my original paint job).

I was never happy with the result so a week ago I stripped all the paint off and tried to repaint it with oils and acrylics.
I’m happy with this result, but how knows. In another 20 years, I might paint it again.
