Couldn't stand how plain the new 6 inch Thor's Helmet was so I decided to paint it a shiny silver. The dull pencil lead grey they used was a bad choice.

The only paint I had to use was Acrylic paint and it was called Metallic Silver Sterling. It was paint my girlfriend's brother had and he gave it to me because I said I had to run and get some paint to paint the helmet. It worked wonders and it has a metal look to it after applying a couple good coats. I'd say most other painters wouldn't use Acrylic paint but for something like his helmet it worked for me.

It's just the angle and the helmet that make him appear cross eyed. It actually isn't in person.

Onyx you're right but I don't think you can really tell unless you have it on close inspection. I think the 275 wolverine may have the best xbelt for molds but it's a pretty big symbol. Colossus's symbol I think is a good size not too big or small but may be a bit hard to mold. I went ahead and made a mold from the cyclops belt but have yet to try it out.

Onyx. I actually and working on turning MU Astonishing Wolverine into his current outfit and I took the X from the Warpath belt from the X-Force pack Warpath (using him for parts since I already have X-Force Warpath). It fits and looks perfect scale wise. And it's round. How about that one? It would be a perfect fit for anyone trying to do any current X-Men uniforms with the X on the left chest/shoulder region of the characters.

I bought a Invaders Red Skull and X-Force Archangel on Ebay, but they came without accesories.

Having read about Shapeways on other forums, I decided to give it a try and make some replacement accesories for the figures:

 

For Red Skull, I made a cosmic cube and luger pistol.

I ordered 2 of the cubes and painted one translucent blue:

I gave my regular Archangel's wings to the X-Force, and made folded ones for the regular:

I also made some guns with silencers for Black Widow, because I think the gun she came with, isn't spy enough
