    Terminator: "I'll be back..."

    The single piece terminator skull from Thingiverse worked out fairly well.
    I couldn't print it full sized but it still looks pretty good at 75% scale.

    There was a lot of clean up needed along the under side of the jaw.

    As an experiment I used some clear nail polish from the dollar store to fill the print lines.
    That seemed to work well but took a lot of coats. The top of the skull has a lot of banding from
    the printed layers that's very difficult to cover. I've ordered some zpoxy two part adhesive
    that's supposed to fill gaps much better.

    I then primed the print with black Duplicolor sandable primer. A metallic paint always looks
    better when it overlays black.

    A zenithal coat of metallic spray paint got the model most of the way.

    The teeth were hand painted with "aged bone" and "white" from Reaper miniatures company.
    The eyes were painted with Reaper "big top red" and "white". I think they could be improved but
    for a first try it came out well enough.
