Ⓗ WORLD WAR 2 - TROUBLE BOY (Steel & Glow)

Post  the-Magpie on Wed Jan 31, 2018 12:23 am

Hey fellows,

It took a long time to finish my latest project - World War 2 Trouble Boy (Steel & Glow).
So I am more than happy to share this jewel with you.

The story behind:
Since Ferg announced that he will end the Project Squadt I was focusing on new topics for my customs.
Finally I decided to go back in time and create a german ww2 soldier type.

Focussing this I had to create a unique style and a lot of accesoires like water bottles, regular grenades, german stick grenades and the legendary Luger.
It was not my point to make a glorification on the german past.
Regarding my point of view, Squadts are still pieces of art with a aesthetic focus, therefore I decided to do a break in style at the paintjob.

This World War 2 Trouble Boy has become a monochrome paintjob with a minimal touch of color.
The colorcode is very strict and has hard contrasts of white, black and neon yellow.
As a special gimmick there are two premium refinements.
The skull of the Trouble Boy and the ammunition box of Boomer is coated with real silver with a slightly darker polished steel finish.
Completly new (and possibly never seen before) is the fact that all white pieces come with mystical aura cause of a powerful blue GID effect at night.
Guess you would never assume this when the lights are on.  blueGID

But now talked enough.
The final result is a german soldier trouble boy and boomer with a amazing explosive force!
Itīs time to throw the grenade!!
„Feuer frei“!

Awesome build as always Mag. The GID shines nicely. blueGID
A Tiger tank would compliment it nicely.  Very Happy
Just a personal preference, I could do without the insignias.

Thanks a lot guys. I really feel gentled.  bow

@ charly: Was also unsure if I should do it with or without insignias.
I am aware for what it stood, but finally I decided to go with and blur the context with color and the squadt as a arttoy.
Hope I donīt hurt anybodys feeling with my interpretation.
About the Tiger Tank... hmmm.. will try if I find time later this year. ;-)

Received 2 PMīs regarding the white/blue GID refinement.
Itīs the same mixture and refinement as the upcoming Vitra Panton Glow is coated with.
Here are two links:

https://www.vitra.com/en-us/living/product/details/panton-glow
https://qvest.de/panton-glow-limited-edition?sPartner=google&gclid=CjwKCAiA78XTBRBiEiwAGv7EKjlQfThUj0YxmBfaA88FcSMYyvaodhx1qCdXrI4d3l4ckIhHfFu3-hoCXNAQAvD_BwE


If some of you are interested in the developement-process of this project, I can try to post a few pics soon.

I'm sure nobody got their feelings hurt. I only meant it purely for aesthetics.  bow

After looking at the pics again, the chrome/silver paint combo was a great idea since it reflects the glow nicely.  clap

Design process pics would be awesome, it seems to be very tedious.

Is this refinement a service we'll be able to get done like the silver refinements awhile back? bounce

Do you have anymore customs in the works?

Awesome, clean as fuck ! Really love the contrast between the simple monochrome and the more sophisticated stuff clap

The GID is a great bonus and the color is killer.

Thanks a lot Thierry. And also a special thank for the stick grenade and posing hint during my modelling process bro!
This was just a awesome idea from your side and matched perfect on the final figure. Really glad to get support of such a professional co-director.  bow
(I am so incredibly currious regarding your upcomming projects!)

@ Marco, Patrick, Charly, Jason, Max... appreciate your feedback and kind words very much. *blushing*

As always in doing customs... the journey is the reward.
I assembled some insights of the last months.

Regarding the current situation I woulīnt be able to offer the glow refinement to others. Guess this was really just a single oppurtunity.
Mixture and Production is top secret and contratually very strict.
About my upcomming customs.. I included a first teaser in my last process picture.  Suspect

Wow, what a process. Thanks for the insight. I wasn't aware you 3D printed those accessories, I thought it came from 1/6 scale stuff, very impressive.

Bummer to hear the service won't be available but totally understandable, looking forward to your next custom. bow

bow

yes I decided to use the 3d-printer at the agency also for squadt customicing.
Itīs a perfect opportunity to design and create new and also more complex weapons and accessoires.

Regarding the Blue Glow paintjob I can fully understand your disappointment.
Word of honour that I will keep it in mind and send you a PM when ever there will be a possiblity.

We're not worthy, we're not worthy....
Really Kick Ass Magpie... your production standards, research & refinement are killer! Associated Squadt sized combat vehicles.... tanks, subs, jet fighters, choppers or Hummvers.... sounds like a goldmine to me lol.

You are keeping the Squadt spirit alive! Outstanding work & I look forward to your next release! cheers bom
