This was part of ReaperBryan's Sir Forscale Painting Competition... Froggy had mentioned a raygun in the thread, and I decided to do a retro-future conversion with a rocketpack, raygun and energy shield. I also decided after a bit of thought that I'd loosely base the design on the classic depiction of DC Comics' Adam Strange... The raygun is actually just the slightly modified stub of his sword's guard and handle with a pin in the end. For the shield, I sculpted a rectangular mount (the "shield generator") on his bracer, intending to have a clear blue-tinted shield so it would show through. But after glueing three layers of blister plastic together and cutting out the shield, an attempt to hit it with some sealer as a primer coat ended up frosting the damn thing... So I painted an opaque "glass" pattern on the shield instead. The gold boss in the middle of the shield is meant to be the thing that generates it, and is the pin that holds the shield onto the arm. The rocketpack is a tiny brass tube, and the cone on the tank, the cones on the rockets and the frame are all hand-sculpted. The two rockets themselves are a pair of plastic model pieces from a 1:700 USS Mount Whitney LLC-20 that I had lying around... I had planned on adding a white stripe and design on the helmet like the picture of Adam Strange, but then concluded that with all the trouble I'd had highlighting the red that it wouldn't be worth it to try that level of freehand because I'd never get the highlighting right on the red after having to go back and forth making the line straight and even... EDIT TO ADD: There's a post further down the thread where I show some WIP pics of how much of the figure was reconstructed or built from scratch...
