I'm really looking forward to it myself! Just made final payment, waiting for them to announce shipping. All signs point to shipping directly from the factory before Chinese New Year so hoping to have it mid February.

Tomorrow I'll start the brown part of the upper body...the most fun of the entire project. Once that's done I'll move onto the two head sculpts, claws and the base.

I learn something with every new project...like how much more I have to learn.

The Hush Superman stands about 42" overall and he's 25" by himself. It comes with three swap out heads. There's also a black version with no cape and different heads...with beards. And more hair. Lots more hair.
Beautiful ship. I never found a Reliant model as big as the one you have. I have other ships, from Art Asylum, but those are smaller. I gave up on kits as well but not for the same reason. I sucked at them

Thanks for the information for Superman, definitely will keep an eye out for one now.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Upper body done except for a couple touch ups. Roughed in the black on the mask as well, doing some more work today including the face.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Yeah, I've seen both in my researching, I decided to kind of go towards the XM silver version, but I went slightly darker... chainmail silver.

It's getting close to wrapping up. Tomorrow I'll do the touch ups on the black area of the mask, seal it, and probably glue the top and bottom halves together, then start the claws for the gloves.
