    Remember my old Vector Prime LoC repaint?
    http://www.tfw2005.com/radicons-customs/repaints-and-minor-mods-4/alpha-trion-loc-112077/

    Well, I did the same again, but on a KO Vector Prime I found.
    The KO is based on the LoC, but it's twice his size, and with less detail. However it was good for a customization.
    I used different paints this time: violet and red are Pelikan PLAKA-Lack (metallic red and metallic violet). Silver is still mithril slver from Games Workshop. Purple on the wings it is a mixture of Testors clear red and clear blue.
    A bit of black ink to bring some detail on and sealed with Testors clear.

    I have that KO too, and I've tried some months ago to kitbash it into Jhihaxus... with bad results. :( 

    Those chinese KO are very poor... but you made a nice work :thumbs2:

    I remember your Jihaxus, it's a pity you didn't complete it.

    And, yeah, the plastic it's bad quality. But I paid it only 1,50€.
    The bad point in bad plastic, a part from easy break, it's that the paint don't attach. But I covered it with a coat of white priming (skull white spray), and that was enough :)
