Yes! They are honestly the foremost in many metallic paints! It may not be obvious, but I'm using various purples of Turbo Dork's in Psylocke's hair and a red color on her lips. If you see my Phoenix and Dark Phoenix repaints, the metallic's they use are also Turbo Dork.killphil wrote: ↑Sat May 22, 2021 5:19 pmThanks, RC. Have a fair bit of customizing and modding experience. Never heard of Turbo Dork paints. They as good as model master's? My local Hobby Lobby stopped carrying them so I'll have to look online to buy this brand.RoyalCollector wrote: ↑Wed May 19, 2021 7:57 pmThanks for looking Ikariniku!

Thanks killphil.killphil wrote: ↑Sat May 15, 2021 7:16 pmLooks amazing! So much better than the stock figure. You really know how to bring bad to mediocre figures to top tier levels.
About your MS Psylocke mod, do you have any other photos of how well she scales next to ML's in just a vanilla pose? Also, if it's not too much to ask, would you mind sharing how you went about shortening her? I'm seriously considering buying one and doing the same thing. It looks so much better than the ML.
Below is a brief graphic of what I did. The black blocking is how much I removed, and the lines are where the natural joints are. I removed the pieces with a craft saw and just evenly cut. For the upper thighs, I had to dremel in new holes, and once I did carefully it's just a boil and pop as the upper leg is a soft plastic. At this point there was abit of overhang, so I sanded the upper thighs to match to the width of where it meets the leg so it's all smooth. You'll need a bit of paint after this to match the skin tones as the plastic underneath is a lighter beige. For the ankles, I cut out the chunk, leaving a small measure of plastic near the upper ankle swivel so it can easily glue down on top of what is left toward the ankle rocker. Again you'll need to sand it all together and maybe put a small bit of apoxie to bridge any gap. I found Turbo Dork's blue raspberry metallic colorshift acrylic a good match for painting the blue on the suit. It sounds like alot if you're new to customizing but it's fine if you correctly plan, measure everything, saw slowly, dremel out the upper thigh joint slowly, maneuvering to make a subtle mushroom shape inside so the thigh joint pops in.
She comes in just about the size of the Buckcap mold after all is said and done:
Not affiliated, but honestly, glowing reviews from the 15+ paints I've ordered.
