Security Trooper

Post by Justin Pyne on Tue Oct 05, 2010 3:38 am

This is one of my older custom minifigs. Made him last year, but I still have him sitting around on my desk. I figured I'd take a better photo of him and post a topic.



Don't be so harsh, he's old! Laughing

It kind of looks like it has a bit of a rough texture... Wink

Oh my. Application is great as always, but I see you had some printing troubles.

No, my printer is fine. I think I added too much sealant to the torso though. I guess I didn't let it dry, so when I assembled the minifigure, my fingerprint got mashed into the layer of sealant. Razz

I got the same problem with Bizzle's decals, you need to seal them before you dip them in the water AND after them. It looks like you didn't seal them properly before applying them which damages the ink like this.

Opps, looks like the decals I sent you so long ago didn't get the correct amount of sealant... Sorry.


About the fig- The decals, if sealed better, look like they were applied fairly well. And the decals on the helmet are some of the nicest applications or helmet decals I have seen. Once again it would see that they need to be better sealed.

Indeed, the helmet application is very nice.

Is it me, or does the actual hip piece look disfigured...

He sanded part of the hip down a bit (if it is disfigured) so that the legs can be bent into the sitting position without scraping the leg decals. Wink

That's what I thought. But it was too noticeable. Razz

Yeah you really don't have to sand the whole thing, just a bit of the underside will do. Wink
