Custom Tron Encom 0.82 Black Lightcycle from "Scars" Project

on Monday, November, 19, 2012 5:33 PM
After watching "Scars" and seeing Tron and his team with their Black Lightcycles I decided to take my discolored Legacy K. Flynn lightcycle by SpinMaster and give it a repaint to look like this:

My plan:
- Break down all components for paint
- Mask off areas not to be painted
- fill body gap on canopy
- Paint Gloss black
- Hand paint 0.82 in Red
- Paint Clearcoat then wetsand
- Polish
- Paint rear section Chrome
- Add reflective details to mimic headlight and the triangle area around the 0.82 designation

What I've done so far:
Breakdown and masking



Here you can see the two different colors of the white plastic

Filling the gaps on the canopy.

I never liked these gaping holes in the front of the lightcycle so I did a quick and easy fill using tape as a barrier and hot glue as a filler. Just put the tape on to follow the contour and then filled in from the back with hot glue.




Gloss Black paint on

Thanks!
I got a little anxious to shoot the clear on it and totally forgot to paint on the "0.82" but I can always put it on top of the clear.

Did have a little snafu with the canopy when I cleared it. The clear on the top began to crinkle so I let it dry then sanded and it took of a couple chips of black so I'm gonna have to respray the black and clear it again.
After sanding the top

masking off the top for respray

The Wet Look Gloss Main body. I put the wheel next to it to show the reflection.


EDIT: 7:31pm
More progress on the 0.82 and adding light reflective tape.
handpainted on the tiny 0.82 in TRON font as best I could. First pic is without a flash and second is with the flash giving the reflective tape action.

getting the reflective headlight decal all painted up. Here the left side of the decal just has horizontal lines making separations and the right side has a "box" area painted for the separations.


I went with the "box" style to more emulate the tiny LED type headlights you see on the cycle.

Fantastic job, Bandit! That looks awesome! I'm sure hoping we see more of those lightcycles in the upcoming episodes.

Nice job Bandit!

I was thinking of doing the same thing, but with more of a "black chrome" rather than a high-gloss black. Your pics are great, and it's hard to be "as reflective" as the CGI, but it seems like your .82 is just not shiny/reflective enough for my tastes.

What do you think if I used something like http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_shadow&153;-chrome-black-out-coating-black-clear-11-oz-2-can-aerosol-kit-duplicolor_99985032-p?searchTerm=chrome+spray+paint
?
Not sure, cause it doesn't look like the paint is made for plastic. I'll keep looking, but any suggestions would be appreciated.

The other thing I was thinking about was a way to make the bike look "less painted" and "more smooth". I was thinking the wetsanding and polish would be enough, but it still looks a little "caked on", particularly in the reflections. I'm gonna have a hard time with that.

Anyway, your bike looks great!buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Nice Bandit!

Painting plastic models is TOUGH, yours turned out really well. Pretty cool. Now you've given me a reason to clean out the stock of Flynn bikes at my area Big Lots stores, they seem to all have about 5 bikes a piece. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

the Black Chrome paint had actually crossed my mind when I was thinking about this project, but I opted out since I wasn't familiar with the paint.
If you do use it please keep me posted with the results!

It is a little orange peel in areas but I'm happy enough with the shine of it since it is a small scale toy, but I have still wanted to possibly wet sand it with some 2000 grit and see how it turns out. I might revisit it soon.

Thanks, it was actually a pretty rushed job since I just wanted it finished to see what it looked like, haha.
In the past few weeks i've been to 6 different Big Lots to see what the had. haha. buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineon line abortion pill http://blog.inkstersgive.com/page/misoprostol-dose-abortion.aspx medical abortion pill online
