Been working on this guy for a while now and I'm going to call him done now since I have to ship him out. Old Halcyon vinyl kit of Judge Dredd. First one of these I've finished. Primered with Badger Stynylrez paints and all the flesh is Stynylrez. Green is all Reaper colors. Gold is Scale 75 shades and I'm not really a fan. Took about 4-5 coats to get smooth coverage. I really miss the old Polly S metallics! Nothing since has come close for coverage and grain. Base is Stynylrez grey, over sprayed with Polly S Concrete, cracks are all colored pencils. Gold for the base was Vallejo Metal Color Gold which airbrushed great (I'll have to try brushing it on at some point). Gold was washed with Liquitex Burnt Umber artists paints, which was also flicked on the base to create stains. Grunge and color variations on the base were created with various Secret Weapon pigments. I needed to push the highlights on the green up a bit, but my lighting here isn't doing me any favors either.

I've had this kit for quite a while now, to build for a friend who's a big Judge Dredd fan. Due to circumstances I can't go into, he asked me if I could this one, along with Judge Anderson and possibly Judge Death put together and painted for him. Second vinyl figure I've worked on, and I thought some of you might find it interesting. First picture shows the components cut out and cleaned up. The second is the major subassemblies.
One of the tricks with this kind of kit is to fill the lower portions with plaster to add rigidity, weight and strength to the piece. Without it, you run the risk of the vinyl buckling if it gets too hot after you've got the figure assembled. Yeah, DON'T leave these kits out in direct sunlight!
and here he is with all the primary assembly complete and ready for paint:
So in addition to the standard carafe of Tropicana orange juice with the oh-so-handy cylindrical lid with gothic arches all around that we all know about, Tropicana makes a sort of pitcher of orange juice with a pop-top lid:
A lid that can do ... THIS:
