A while back I custom painted my BSD molded parts and the feedback on them was positive. I ended up doing quite a few sets for fellow pinsiders. (Thanks everyone.) I then got some questions about what else I could do. One machine that kept popping up was Indiana Jones. Especially the 2 molded ruins. One pinsider asked me to do his and wanted a more realistic look. Again, like the BSD parts, I tried to stay fairly close to the original color so they would not look too much out of place. I tried to keep the stone color warm, and to add a little more "aging" to the final look. When the parts were painted at the factory, only one color was used. You had the color of the plastic, and some detail color in the indentations of the plastic. I lay down an uneven base color first, followed by a thinned down paint to fill in the detail. I then drybrush different colors in a few stages, for a final effect that has a wider range of colors and looks much more natural. The owner of the machine agreed with me that some foliage would compliment the stone color while adding some contrast with a little bit of realism. Lichen was applied to the parts and now look much more like they would appear in a jungle. All the detail is implied rather than being exact. I can not hand paint each and every crack. The tough part was coming up with a paint scheme and to try not to go overboard.

The Idol had some dust and grime added to it along with some "jewels" for eyes. Now there is more of a contrast in the face because it is more visual of whether the eyes are closed or not. This was all pretty much straightfoward with some dark paint applied and then wiped off to see the metallic finish underneath.

The Biplane was a a little bit weathered in the movie so I just added a little bit of dirt and added the black on the rudder to make it more movie accurate. Not much could be done with this part.

The German plane had more potential. The model used for the movie had a srange camo pattern. Is was all geometric type shapes with all straight lines. After discussing the paint scheme with the owner, we decided to go with a generic type camo pattern, similar to planes of that era. It is actually my own design. Once the basic color was down, I applied some exaust and dirt streaks along with some chipped paint on the leading edges. Those old war birds had a lot of power, and the props threw a lot of stuff onto and through the paint on the plane. The decals were hand made.

Any comments or suggestions would be welcomed. I will post some pictures along with some of the original parts for comparison.

Very nice. Agree that the subtlety works well.
Only thing I'm concerned about is the flocking(?), will that break apart and dance around the machine? Looks sturdy mind.

It is actually very flexible and rubbery. It should not come apart. Of course if it was tugged on, or if something hard brushed up against it I'm sure that it would break free.

Creativity knows no bounds. Outstanding!

#17 9 years ago

Hey everyone, I am actually the owner of this tester set of IJ parts that Roland has done. I have not yet received the parts, but from what I see so far, I am extremely pleased. I can tell you guys one thing, Roland is a class act to deal with and always wants to achieve the highest level of detail for your modifications to please you. Can't say enough good things about him and really cant wait to get these in and install them. I will actually be doing a full restore on my machine soon, but figured I would go ahead and let Roland work his magic on his first IJ!

I hope that you did not mind that I posted this thread about the IJ parts. As far as a class act, I could learn a lot from you. Thanks for the kind words. Just hope that you are as happy with them when you receive them in person. If you could post a few pics when they are installed I would love to see them in the machine. Thanks for posting on this thread. : )
