Default Kotobukiya Archangel repaint

This was my first statue purchase and I didn't look it over as well as I probably should have. Long story short he had a big paint blemish on his forehead and a few bad factory touch ups on the wings. After about 9 months of toying with the idea and talking to a few people here about commissions i finally took the plunge and painted it myself. Far from perfect but I'm happy with it. Especially being my only attempt at something like this. Took about 10 hours total. Tons of masking and a few weird paint reactions. Going to clean up the edges and finish it up, maybe chrome the wings at some point.

Weird head paint blob


Base coat


5 hours of masking


WTF? Start over..


Finished paint


Final product (for now)

Beautiful! I got one commissioned coming in just like this. Looks great. Can't believe how bad the original paint app was.

If Koto doesn't release blue and pink Archangel I may have to follow your footsteps

One great sculpt and too bad they didn't see the true beauty this statue could have been painted with the original color along with the silver black version as an alternative. Glad to see some of us have the same vision for this statue. Great job and wonderful idea to repaint it.

This is a very good job. And kudos to you for having the courage to do that, I wouldn't trust myself at all. You did and it paid off!
