    Pretty happy with this one so I'm whoring it out a little bit. So if you're sick of seeing it by now, sorry.

    Very nice paint job, smooth. And the head sculpt is nice too, how does the cannon fit in transformation?

    VERY cool! That's a great color scheme and paintjob. Is that an Evac head on there? That's clever, I never would have thought of that head for Galvatron, but it works pretty well! And I love the detailing on the belly area.

    i think the head and the paint quality are what make a good kitbash and you nailed it w/ this one

    Yep, its an Evac head.
    Yeah, it'll transform still, the barrel of the cannon can be removed leaving only a small post on the outter wrist. Of course, I rushed slipping the barrel over the post and the paint kinda fused the two. So yes the barrel can be removed but it breaks the seal of the glue used to hold the post to the forearm. I'll need to go back and fix that at some point.

    As of now, this barrel is more of a place holder, should I ever find a suitable blower scoop, I'd like to incorporate it into the hood and take advantage of the flap the Mustang has. That way the hood scoop can be used as the barrel of the cannon. It'll be more in line with the BT/Kiss idea of using every part in both modes and give Galvatron more of a throw back feel to the G1 figure. That is, he'd be able to fire the cannon in alt mode as well.

    As for the paint, its Testors Model Masters brand, Ford's Ultraviolet Purple. It would've been more of a fade from Purple to Silver but an unfortunate gust of wind changed that plan. I'm still debating buying a set of the Boss Reprolabels in Silver.

    For what it's worth you did an incredible job! I never would've expected that to turn out so well. The head especially works quite well. :thumb 

    Don't worry, the hard lines work in favor of him.

    Tempting... Let me think it over.

    Ah shucks... But it ain't perfect, The cannons giving me hassle still and the Alt Modes a little bland still.
