For the amount of time I had to work on Drago I thought he turned out decent. I had been given 3 assignments to do at once with a month-and-a-half to complete it in; The new standard Khador jack chassis (which was scrapped and replaced with the extreme design) Beast 09 and Drago. This guy had some complex design stuff going on with him in the shoulder department. If you have seen the model he has got a bunch of piston work in that area and normally on the jacks that kind of thing is armored over and you don't get to see the detail but it was pretty key to this guys look. So lots of building and back filling to make it castable. In fact, since I suck at sculpting chains I used real chain which meant that I had to back fill all of that as well. Defiantly one of those "WTF am I DOING!" moments as I was working on his arms. Made with Magic Sculpt, lots of aluminum tubing, real chain, Fimo and green stuff and done in something like 2 1/2 - 3 weeks. Anyway... Yeah, Drago.
