Dragon for me

While I thinker sand and buff the centurion I decide I might as well do my dragon at the same time while waiting for things to dry.

The surface quality of the dragons print was meh, something not 100% apparent till I already made moulds. So the edges need rubbing down and the flat surfaces need some Mr. Surfacer and a once over with 400grit.

That done the clam shell peices are put into very hot water and left to soften before putting them together and squeezing them tight and holding them under cold water to harden again. This is an old trick for 2 piece resin parts to get a good tight seam. The fine gaps are then puttied and rubbed smooth.

Here we are with a base coat down and masked up for paint, with a nice spring sunset in the back ground.

There's one more step I'd like to add which is a bit of red paint Draconis snake on the leg. Once the
Davion Guards colours go on I hope to have the Drac logo showing through to add a little interest.

And in parts for easier time painting.

I still have a spare dragon left over  if some ones interested in it, when its gone its gone.


  1. I would love the Dragon, how would I get it?

  2. How do I contact you about the Dragon mech ?

  3. I emailed you awhile ago about the Dragon, I'm guessing I was to late to get it. Do you ever do small encore runs? Looks like I'm not the only interested party.
