    Made from a KO Chinese Police Prowl.

    1. Painted the sideboards under the doors from black to white.
    2. Painted the crest on his head from red to gold
    3. Painted his eyes from blue to red.
    4. Covered up the Japanese Prefecture badge on the grill with black.
    5. Removed the KO badges on the vanity plate and shoulders and added the 'Con badges.
    6. Removed the red translucent cover from left rear tail light because the right one was missing.

    I like the color tweaks you gave it. And you're right, it doesn't look bad without the tail light covers. You could consider a want thread asking for covers though.. in fact, Allen might be able to hook you up with one, too... he has a ton of Alternator parts!

    I put gold on his helmet crests because of the gold on the Great Wall from the badge on the doors. Forgot to mention that.

    I'm thinking about taking off the blue from the three stripes between the crests and doing them in red instead but haven't fully decided yet.

    I also need to tighten the fingers on his hands as well as the door hinges, rear bumpers, and right elbow. Most of that requires some form of pin readjustment. :(

    If you take the head apart the crest comes off leaving a hole. You could replace the crest with something or just fill it in to give the head a different look... OR you could just turn the crest upside down

    Hmmm. I might have to give that a try. Although I think he may look like he has some freakishly big eyebrows. :lol 

    ***EDIT***

    Just tried it. And yes it was freakishly large eyebrows. Like Pai Mei from Kill Bill. :lol

    Definitely needs a new head to make him stand out from Prowl, but otherwise great!
