And yes, the G ‘65 is awesome and highly recommended if you have the chance to get one! The pose is so dynamic and lifelike! You can almost feel him stomping through the display.

Ahhh....my mistake.

Oh man, those blast effects look amazing canofhumdingers!

I'm currently learning my new Canon EOS Rebel camera, and haven't really added much to Tohokyo lately... I did take a cool quickn'dirty pic of my NECA '62, posted over in the creative pics thread...

Here's the raw, unedited image...

Small update. Added some perimeter strips underneath to reinforce the base and make it sit level due to the wiring.

Added in 1 month 8 days 13 hours 6 minutes 24 seconds:
Worked on the destruction area a bit. Tried to get a blast area look going. Still have all the finer details left (people, street signs, poles , cars etc...) think the next thing to do is to spray entire diorama in a clear matte finish.

Just hit it with the matte finish and blended it all nicely imo.

Thank you coh. Haven't been dedicating regular time to it and have to be feeling it otherwise it's not enjoyable so it's taking quite a while. I was a little nervous when I started painting the destruction on the base but I am happy with the way it came out so far. Cars have to be painted and assembled so that is my next challenge.
