Scott Copeland’s Groot and Rocket
Here’s some shots of my Dragon Rocket & Groot kit built up. This is my favorite of Dragon’s “Guardians” line, the likenesses are excellent and the parts fit together very well. They both contain quite a bit of the softer rubber/vinyl material Dragon favors in their figure kits, but fortunately it takes Duplicolor sandable automotive primer well.
Built these pretty much out of the box, I did reposition Rocket to perch him on Groot’s shoulder as seen in the film, and I added some HO scale moss to give Groot’s mossy parts added texture. It was airbrushed with various Vallejo & Badger FF acrylics. I thought it came out pretty nice, it won a Bronze medal in the science fiction category at WonderFest.
