    Inspired by Solrac333, I had to do this myself. I went a different route though and gave it a more worn look. It was quite a nice repaint to do. Unfortunately I have no kitbashing skills so forget the collapsable legs like Solrac333's (which is very cool).

    * UPDATE - Last pic reveals extended Stacks!

    Thanks! I still need to fill the windows in some more and find a better rifle. I'm using a classics silverstreak gun at the moment. I'd love to find a trailer for this guy but my BBTS one is too big.

    Thanks! I think yours looks more diecast then mine though with those shiny colors and all. Yours reminded me of that mini master piece Prime (I think it was THC Convoy).

    You only THINK you don't have any kitbashing skills... You should give it a shot sometime. You might surprise yourself. :) 

    Great paint job! That's the hardest part of kitbashing anyway. :D

    I guess you're right. I should try to kitbash or something, perhaps one of these days in the near future I'll try a classics Jazz or something like that. Thanks!

    Looks good. I did one myself. Still need to post it. I really like the shade of blue you used for him.

    I am absolutely going to do a NP!! I used MM Ford Engine Blue as my blue color, it really works nicely. Thanks guys!! Here's a new update...

    *The stacks are made out of those little paint brush protectors and actually (in my opinion) work out perfectly. They're totally removable and fit rather snugly.

    Thanks Solrac333!! If you're asking if I just did the stacks then yeah! I used those stupid little brush tip protectors and cut and painted them. They slip right on, I think it took about 2 minutes tops.

    By the way, any ideas for a trailer?
