FF6 The Rock

 With my armored car on the table (see Armor section), I needed a new kit to work on while I was waiting for the glue or paint to dry on the car.

Closing my eyes I reached in to my stack and pulled out a box of Rocks, well one Rock.  Its a nicely done Dwayne The Rock Johnson. 

 Since a lot of his characters are similar, and with no documentation in the box, I had a hard time trying to figure out which movie character this represented.  I narrowed it down to his character in Fast and Furious 6 or Rampage. I mean what movie doesn't have him in a tight shirt and gun?  I found this pic, and decided that this was the inspiration.

 The kit is about a 1/6 - 1/5 scale kit in tan resin. It comes in 4 parts. There are some pin holes, and it looks like the mold slipped here and there, but thats no problem for a garage kit modeler. 😉

Haha, don't remember why I drilled the extra holes.

A little mold slip? No biggie.

The base seemed a little narrow.


We'll start painting next time... Thanks for looking.

Once I got the major imperfections worked out, I gave it a coat of the Vallejo primer. I found a few more things, but at what point do you say good enough?  I was at that point.

Checking how the arm fit. Pretty good.

I dropped the gun arm, and with my luck and without looking I knew it hit the ground gun side down and the barrel was off. Yep. Then I realized there was a bubble there which made it weak. Wanting to do the gun in chrome, and not wanting to mess with the seam line - I'll make a new barrel.

Not having done any airbrushing in a long while, I took the easy way out. I primed him all over . I then took a darker color and painted it up from the bottom, and then took a highlight color and sprayed down from the top. Looked good.  For the uniform, my ref has him all in black so I took some artistic color license.

I'm not really liking the rock base. That might change. But next time...

Been a few weeks but I'm back with The rock all finished. I readdressed his shirt color and finished any little bits that I felt undone. Added some paint to the rock base and that's about it. I'm not really happy with the eyes - I think they're too big - and may take another stab at it. Thanks for looking.

Can't see the eyes very well ("see" what I did there?) but it looks good to me!

Hehe Dick. Thanks.  You're right, here you go. The irises look too big to me, almost like anime eyes. Will redo soon.
