That's a fine rendering you got the...
Wait, these are actually real!??
Absolutely love them!
Ha, good one :D I saw a forum topic somewhere where people discussed if this was for real or just fake.
I have a question on your technique if you dont mind. How are you getting the paint so smooth? I cant see any orange peel in them at all, surely you're not sanding all those little surfaces to perfection. The quality of the work (not just the artistic styling) is amazing, well done
Well yeah I do sand most of it. But even tho the clear flows out petty much perfect on curved areas I still sand and buff the handles because it makes me feel better :D I also sand out and buff every dust particle no matter on what spot it landed. I really have no special technique when finishing. I just make sure my guns are as clean as then can and that my small custom paint booth is clean as well. I wipe the controllers off with a tac rag and spray the clear just like the data sheet says. I use a sata jet 3000B digital (HVLP) with a 1.3 nozzle for clear coating. But I have also accomplished pretty similar results with a gun that cost a fraction of what this gun cost. The clear coat I use is lesonal 2K HS premium, its slow but flows out very nicely. The rest is just getting rid of the orange peel and imperfections.

hey, just a question, are the systems still active after everything or do you not want to touch them or are they just for show, i love what i see but i still want to play with my system even after what you do. great work on all of them. BEAUTIFUL.
Everything looks and work like new. I also polish the contacts of the cartridge slot so that games boot up without any issues. Having nice looking consoles and controllers that dont work would be pretty pointless no matter if its only a display piece at least in my opinion.

You do an amazing job, dude – it's really liscious to feel the passion and love gone into your work ! It makes me feel happy for you, for having found such a sweet activity to spend time with and enjoy with all of your heart ! Much kudos to you, for being who you are and doing what you love. :) :clap:
Very nice gallery.
I'm curious how you get the patterns on them, like the OoT/MM N64.
Is it also paint, or stickers, or what??
Anyway, keep up the great work.
how much would it cost for the tron legacy mod?
Do you do request?
