    Looking forward to seeing those models completed then. Plus a group shot of the whole force when you are satisfied with your work.

    I'm going to try to get some help with a good camera work. I only have my tablet to do some of these and not the best lighting.

    I'm so sad :sleepy:. Not only did I manage to knock my favorite YY, Bad Candy, down to the ground, I also managed to step on her! Unfortunately I don't think she's salvageable. The ankles are so bent they will be really weird even if I bent them back and pinned them. Please throw one back for her!

    While this is regrettable, be glad that at least it wasn't a Limited Edition figure. Also, I'm sure there's going to be people giving you tips to fully repair her soon enough. :)

    Why not putting her in hot water, then slowly raising her ? It might be worth a try.

    Not sure just hot water would make it bendy enough. I guess I'd need to take off the base anyway.

    Oh and I think i'm missing her left arm! :frowning:

    CB's metal is pretty bendy thanks to the lead content, I've had swords bent at a right angle that have gone back to straight without any lasting damage.

    Worst comes to the worst and you rebuild the ankle with greenstuff after pinning.

    @Space Ranger Are you going to buy a replacement for her? Perhaps try to fix her up? Even if the leg snaps off is there someway you could fix it with greenstuff or the like?

    If you can find all the pieces (arms and wings), go ahead and pin the ankles, it will be fine. Weak ankles are a very common 'feature' of that vintage of CB mini.

    I finally have an update. But I no longer can do photobucket. Hopefully this works.

    This is my Tanko ML. I need some help naming her. I've got two but one is pretty controversial.

    1. Boom Boom
    2. Blow Up Doll

    Yeah, blow-up doll is a bit too explicit.

    Boom-boom can be, but I'm not going to tell a gal in power armor toting a missile launcher that!

    Well I guess the important ones to ask are actually the guys in the group! Only one female who's there only once in a while. And knowing her, she'd love #2! lol

    I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. So far i'm on track with making every single figure different for Ikari. Next is the Liberto. I'm using Bran Do Castro for him. Since I want to use him in my Dahshat, Ikari, and Yu Jing, I'm going to be bit darker on colors. But traditionally the Sun Wu Kong, they monkey king he styles himself after, has at least red and some gold.

    I effed up something though. The holder screw for airbrush needle fell into the garbage disposal! I didn't know until I turned in on!!! :scream: Now I need a new one.

    Hope it doesn't cost alot to purchase a replacement. How fast could you get one of those screws?

    It should be under $10 US. At least I don't need it right away. I have a bunch of figs I recently did all of my priming and Zenithal highlights on already.

    Though I won't be able to work on my Druze. I'll have to work on Dahshat ABH and other things. Not a bad thing. Though my next one is going to be the Liberto.
