I paint and / or finish these with dark undertones and shading to highlight the details and then use layers of metallic and / or other coloring and finishes, making sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain despite high tech themes. They maintain a retro, sometimes rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something. -- it's about 5" tall.
Please see my many other pieces usually made from wood, including LIFE size ray gun replicas, robots, rockets, flying saucers, vehicles, animals, diorama scenes and more!
I hope the pictures fully communicate the charm I am sure you will find in the final product.
Note that these collectable pieces are meant for the display case or adult wear and NOT for children to play with. Do to their hand made and finished nature as well as the natural wood used slight variations are of course normal.
I prefer emails rather than convos if possible for easy and flexible communication and usually place my adddress in my store banner or description, so thanks. I take credit card payments (usually directly as a merchant) but may also take other online methods as well (any options will be listed in the email I will send buyers); I will email you an invoice as soon as I can after you buy so you can pay but all the information you should need should be available right on the Etsy receipt ... and in any case I gladly accept checks (USA) or money orders! I DO usually ship all over the world (please read this page fully). Foreign buyers please email me first.
Interested in a variation of what you see or an outright custom made piece at a fair price? Contact me for details. Thanks for looking!
