Custom Marvel Legends Nemesis/Holocaust BAF clear armor mod

For those of you who picked up the ML Nemesis series you may of noticed he's no longer clear, instead having an icky matte yellow paint app. There is a way to return him to his normal clear orange/yellow goodness but it'll take some work. First take him apart. Snag some quality paper towels like Bounty as these don't leave particles behind like Brawny or Walmart brand ones. Make sure you're out doors or have adequate ventilation because you will be working with Acetone .Dampen the towel with Walmart or Ace's brand of Acetone (I use Kleen-strip) and begin to wipe off the solid yellow paint on his arms and legs. You don't have to be super careful on these parts because the Acetone won't eat away at that plastic very quickly like it will hard plastics parts. Use Q-tips if you have trouble getting any of the red bubble apps out of crevices.

You're going to go through a lot of paper towels and Acetone with this guy, probably needing to go over him twice. The shoulderpads are very Acetone resistant and easy to clean off. But the chest/waist IS NOT! You have to be very careful about how much acetone you put on the paper towel because too much and it'll begin to melt the plastic, the paper towel sticking. Fortunately you can go back over any 'oops' spots with more acetone and knock down any rough spots. Avoid hitting the already clear dome if you can. The plastic will look foggy but this is normal.

Now use Tamiya clear yellow and you will see him start to turn crystal clear when it begins to dry. Make sure to get underneath his shoulder pads to make them clear as well. If you want brighter eyes on the skeleton, paint them silver and then clear yellow over them. Add the red bubbles by using Tamiya clear red in groups centered around the middle of his front and back limb sections to complete the look. Dab them on the the rounded back end of the paint brush instead of the bristles to get perfect circles. In addition to the clear modifications I also separated his shoulder armor and cockpit using clear ball joints to articulate them so Holocaust could raise his arms properly.
