    Okay lets keep all talk about who made the kit and your opinions on him out of this discussion, I've heard it before, I got this off of ebay and not from him any way. It's not done yet, I still have a lot of work to do on the painting. I'd like opinions on my paint job so I can make adjustments.

    I never was a big fan of daniel as a headmaster so I used the human arcee from "Only human"

    I really like the paintjob you did. Looks pretty much totally G1 accurate. A do agree about the nipples, tho. :) 

    My only crit is that I think you need to take a bit more time with the prep. That mold is pretty old from what I recall. An evening of bondo and wetsanding with 2000 and 4000 grit paper would have made a HUGE difference in the completed smoothness and finish of the piece. Oh well, save it for next time.

    nice job on the paint. I've got one myself and I've only touched it up here and there. It looks great within a collection!

    Yes I agree...looks like boobies. Question...does this mold actually stand up on its own?

    Looking good. Although the face mold is a little distorted it still looks very cool painted as you have it.

    Your comparison pic with Springer and HotRod made me laugh!

    Wow, I never realized that these A.R.C. figures were so tall!
