BATMAN VS KILLER CROC 2ND EDITION STATUE REAPIRED AND FULLY REPAINTED PICS

Hey Guys

here is a batman vs killer croc 2nd edition statue i got badly damaged on ebay for a real cheap price. i repaired all the damages and fully repainted it. {batman, croc, and base}.

i have to say this was extremely hard to repaint... especially the base area where croc comes out of the sewer... this piece took me alot of hours to do..some painters like a challenge on paint ups... I DO NOT...i know there are hard times in this hobby...but i like my paint ups to go where iam always in control...and on this i lost control.

overall iam very happy with the results. i also own the first edition statue of this dio...and love it...he has the navy blue suit on it.

here are the before and after pics {pics are from my cel}













here is a pic of croc before i glued bats on him

That is one of the most bad ass Batman not to mention DC pieces made...great repair/paint job too. Patience needed in the paint/repair dept. some places are just hard to reach paint wise...good skills ya got

Great job! I really like the new green you used for KC, it really makes the statue pop. I mightuv used a more matte black for the cape since it seems to have a bit of a sheen to it in the picture which doesn't make sense for cloth, but overall great work. I really love this piece, can't believe how well it looks after it being broken so bad, that is a fantastic fix up!
