I just could't resist those Modelzone prices -- £4.99 for this...

Not a complex kit, and intended to to snap together. Nicely detailed, though, even if her legs do seem unfeasibly long! Primer everywhere to start with.

The sculpt is extremely good, I reckon. It's got Ms Johansson's turned up nose and full lips rather nicely, and the eyes have slightly raised detail for the iris and lashes, which will help painting no end...
 
face-part-painted-XL.jpg
 
She's not actually as yellow as she looks here! Citadel colours mostly, with Elf Flesh as a base, Dwarf Flesh for the lips, and a lot of mix and matching, wash and blusher from chalk pastel.
 
face-n-hair-XL.jpg
 
Hair is mostly Vallejo -- I started with "Saddle Brown" overlaid with red "Woodgrain", then progressive dry brushing in lighter colours, finished with a coat of Citadel "Fuegan Orange" wash, because the home team all though she was too much a brunette, not a redhead...

The suite is actually blue, not black or grey. I started by spraying the body matt black, and then used my "carbon fibre" technique of spraying through a fine mesh (salvaged from a bunch of flowers we bought this weekend) to mask a dark blue top-coat, which now has the look of a "technical fabric" of some sort. Actually, though it's hard to see clearly in this image, the effect of the mesh stretching and distorting over her curves makes the fabric effect even more realistic...

And this is where I'm at tonight. Most of the details painted in Vallejo German Grey with some dry brushing for relief. She's not quite a "weekend project, but not far off. Should be finished tomorrow, I reckon.
 
bestest,
M.

Very nearly finished, now. I just want to see if she needs a few more highlights and shading in the daylight... Proper pics in the studio tomorrow...

And here she is... one of the most enjoyable £4.99s-worth of modelling I've done in a long time

...time for your close-up, Ms Johansson

Really nice kit, with very good fit, even without glue. And the sculpt is very faithful to the delectable Ms J, although I suspect her legs aren't quite that long, nor her thighs quite so robust. However, this is Natalia Romanova, international super spy...
 
bestest,
M.

That came out very nice. What's the scale/how tall is she?

Great job, Matt!  You really captured the look of the suit.  Moebius makes some nice figure models.  I have their Iron Man models but I haven't picked up one of these Black Widows yet.
