Von Franco's Eye Gone Wild
Posted by Justinryan215 on Monday, July 27, 2020 6:54 AM

Happy Monday (well, at least it will start heading in that direction once the coffee kicks in!)  I finished this quick (two) Weekend build this weekend.  It probably would have been a one weekend build, but I decided to paint it in Candy Poison Green...

The kit is Moebius Models' Von Franco's Eye Gone Wild.  It was an extremely simple kit, which is sort of why i decided to put a candy paint job on it.  The paint is Army Painter black primer/base, with Vallejo Metal Air Gold as a ground coat.  I then gave it a color coat of AutoAir Colors Candy2.0 Poisin Green mixed into their Intermediate cleabase.  I followed (roughly) the manufacturer's direction of about 20 percent candy into the intercoat clear.  I think I could have gone a little heavier, as it took clost to 15-20 coats to achieve the color I was envisioning...

"...failure to do anything because someone else can do better makes us rather dull and lazy..."

Mortal as I am,I know that I am born for a day.  But when I follow at my pleasure the serried multitude of the stars in their circular course, my feet no longer touch the Earth...
