i've done thrusters from the pens that had the metal cap but those are getting too hard to find these days so i'm painting the ones that come with the kit with silver leaf from tamiya, clear coating them, then dipping them in testor's metalizers really quick and then shaking them or letting it dry and it get's this shiny yet used appearance, but nothing beats metal parts

i also use the ballpen caps but it's hard to cut on it's proper length.. haha i don't have any AB so i just use paint cans for my kits :)

Same here i use the spray can's since airbrush are to expensive, plus their maintenance and cans are cheap and honesly you can do the same detailing and painting in my experience.

There used to be such a variety of those metal ballpen caps that one didn't need to cut them.. now a days when you find them you gotta cut and the sand .. and um all i got is a cheap dremel tool it helps but if you don't hold them right.. [they hurt!! really hard] :sweatdrop:

well for detailing i use some plastic sheets for plating and extension of parts.. putty for re molding a part same also for part extension and filling some not so pretty lines. well for now i can't see any bullpens with metal caps.. just doing the same painting silver for the plastic trustees :)

i've never used plastic sheets since well they're not available easily so no extensions for me :(.

Do use my dremel to cut pieces to size or to lower them to fit my needs if needed, i've tried putty but eh messes is all that comes to mind

some parts are just molded from a putty (didn't know that was too heavy for him when i start modeling a kit). the metal parts were just a junk around our home.. really cant remember but i see it's like a truster so i slap it haha

Looks pretty damn cool, bro, and nice work with the LED mod. :thumbsup:
If you haven't done so yet, you should come join the Gundam Eclipse forum and show off your work there: [link]
We're also having a contest in that forum this coming summer with some awesome prizes. It'd be great if you could join that.
In regards of the Mecha contest that was at the MAC forums, I think I'll be dropping out of that as well. I kinda just lost the motivation to continue working on my entry, so I'll be putting that project on hold for now.

You've been busy. Nearly a full stream of commissions since you started back up. That's impressive.
