I here the theme music, and I probably will every time I see your progress.  This will be fun to watch dlots, and I am sure I will be picking up a few tricks that I can use for the hero build later this year!  I wish you fun and success, with the build and the contest.   8)

well day 1 and we have begun working on the cape which is two pieces when joined together leave a huge seam so that had to be fill on both sides. well we all have heard don't tug on Superman's cape but does that include sanding and filling let's hope not so without further ado

Title: Re: SFMA Spring Build Superman Kryptonite Nevermore
Post by: dlots1701a on March 01, 2014, 03:54:17 pm

Title: Re: SFMA Spring Build Superman Kryptonite Nevermore
Post by: Armandodlc on March 01, 2014, 04:28:30 pm
You glued the two halves of the cape together first, I take it? Was that stable enough to allow sanding?
Title: Re: SFMA Spring Build Superman Kryptonite Nevermore
Post by: dlots1701a on March 01, 2014, 04:32:33 pm
yep let it dry for about 30 mins and then fill and sand
Title: Re: SFMA Spring Build Superman Kryptonite Nevermore

That cape seam sure looks like an annoying sucker...
Title: Re: SFMA Spring Build Superman Kryptonite Nevermore (Box Stock)
Post by: DizWhiz on March 08, 2014, 01:14:17 pm
Seams can be infuriating to deal with. Fill, dry, sand, GAH!! Fill, dry, sand #*!*@ (This has been a dramatic reenactment)

That said, great work  ;D

dude, me and figure kits would not get along! I admire your patience!
I would approach this kit thus:
* sand... fill... sand... fill... sand.. fill..sand. fill. sand. fill. sand.fill.sand.fill.SAND.FILL!SAND!FILL!! LANDFILL!! screw it... I'm making an x-wing* lol :P

Hey it's looking really good !!

Even with the annoying cape seam, the assembly looks really clean... should have a great base to do your painting on... Not much more work and that cape seam will disappear :)

Awesome work!

Well after a week of rain and wind we finally had a good couple of days for me to reprime the man of steel and get a base coat on him and part of the cape, for most of you saw the cape base coat on Mondays hang out it has bee hit with fine and super fins sanding sticks to get imperfections out of the paint as well as make it look less glossy. today was able to get a base coat on the figure itself but will still have to knock that shine down a little more. so with out futher ado here are the pics and the video will be up on my channel on you tube just look for Christopher Whitford.

well I did manage to finish the man of steel and right in the nick of time with several painting accidents the figure was finally completed last night around 10 pm EST paints used on this model are Guards Re for the boots, trunks, and the Cape, french blue for the Body suit using games workshop of citadel paints for the flesh tones and washes and the yellow on the belt as well as the green chains so without further ado
