I just painted the 1st skull with simple hobby paint and it looks incredible. the chrome plating makes for a very seemless smooth finish. The head looks just like it an original 1974 Mego. I could not be happier. Now I just need to get a green jump suit and some black army boots. Currently tapped for money as I bought a very nice Riddler from a kind guest in here. I will post pictures when Red Skull is finished. Anyone have any ideas for the arm bands?
