I was a big fan of the BraveStarr cartoon. I still think he is a very cool character and I'm really surprised he hasn't been reimagined in the wave of 80's nostalgia.

I tried a couple of new things on this custom. First, I mixed in paint-on-sealer into my paint so it would adhere a little better. It worked great on the head and legs. Not as well on the arms which I ended up sanding down. Second, I melted the styrene to form fit over the chest once it was sanded down. I then etched the pattern into the styrene. I've done a little melting and a little etching but this was the first time where those techniques would make or break the custom. Lastly, I used a technique I picked up from Lance Sputnik using elmers glue for a quick cast and was able to get that Armadillo belt buckle cast directly onto the Tunnel Rat waist.
