    this is a Lugnut prototype i redid into BoltBox
    the head was not gray like the body when i got it that's why the color is off
    when the paint was wet it was a 100% mach but damn it when it was dry it was all off but i like it *after 3hrs of mixing paint you would to! lol*
    last 2 pix are of him before i redid him and i left one pic up of him still with green windows but i like the red better thanks to Redline for the help with that!
    hope you like:)

    Nice. I saw your post in Nemy's thread about disassembling this guy. So, he wasn't to difficult? I wonder if it was becuase it was a proto. Hmm. Nice job, though. :thumb

    I have just one complaint. The ugly green windows look out of place within the confines of a grey bot with red highlights. Might I suggest you use either clear paint, or sharpies to change it? Red sharpie would turn them pure raw red (if you need an example, go look in the gallery and click on Revlimiter's name in the artist list and look at his beautiful Wildrider's windows) and that'd go nicely with those modest red highlights. You could also go with a black sharpie if you wanted it more subdued, but the detailing wouldn't stand out against all his black aps at all.

    the only trick with using a sharpie versus clear red paint is that its a little trickier to avoid having strokes show up, and having good solid even coverage.

    Why would you kitbash a prototype? Arent they already rarer and harder to find than the actual figure? As much fun as it was modding my Barricade to have strobing lights I would never do it to the prototype. It looks good, yeah, but why?
