Zoids 2 Sabre: Blue Variant by GhostLiger Zoids 2 Sabre: Blue Variant by GhostLiger
After viewing Wolftiger's custom King Liger where I was first introduced to the technique for changing chrome colour (Thanks Wolfie ^^) I decided to give it a try myself.

Recently a spare Zoids 2 Sabre came into my possession and I'm sure most Zoiders familiar with Z2 are aware of the lovely blue variant shown on the box. While I myself am pretty convinced that variant is simply a trick of the light that doesn't stop me liking it, so I decided to see if I could emulate that variant.

Sadly it didn't come out as well as I hoped. The blue turned out too dark, though in all likelihood the problem was probably more caused by having to put on an extra layer to hide the changes in colour caused by hand brushing. Regardless he's still pretty to me and I'm mostly just glad to have been able to finish another custom. I don't get to work on them much anymore.

Also this guy could probably do with a fresh set of stickers if anyone has any spare laying around they wouldn't mind selling or trading.

As I have not seen the boxart, I don't know about it, however, I will say I do like the blue and it overall. Despite this though, the bright red parts are what immediately attract my attention first (contrast), though it isn't an eyesore, more of, it just detracts from the impact of the awesome blue chrome.

Ya, though had I have done something about the red, it would've defeated the point of the custom. The only thing I could change was the chrome colour from the purple to blue. Although, I will admit I like it in a retro 80s toy kinda way, but that could just be me XD
