    Ok, finally finished my Classics Browning that was made from a generic PistolBot from German toy company Simba. Replaced the face with a face from one of the power-up heads from Super Guardion (Yuusha toy), added a bit more movement in the arms, drilled holes in the hands for weapons, and repainted everything, and then did a lot of drybrushing to highlight the face, add rust on the legs, tarnish the silver, etc.

    Not too happy about the gunmode, but I like the 'botmode. Some of the original paint might bleed through on some of the pics due to the camera flash, but I assure you that the original paint is not visible IRL :)  Some minor paint errors that I will take care of eventually, but my focus is now on creating a custom box for this toy. This guy doesn't have a lot of movement, but I wanted it that way, like a G1 block homage :) 

    Paints used: Humbrol Enamel paints: Satin Black, Metallic Blue, Metallic Silver, Scarlet Red, Gunmetal, Matte Tan, Matte Kahki, and I covered the paint with gloss cote for protection.

    I like that old, rusty look to it. It makes it look real, so great job on it, bigpete.

    thanks guys :)  I've started designing the box. If it turns out the way I want, it'll be kick@$$! ^^ I won't have to worry about a nice insert either; the PistolBot had a nice transparent tray that I'll put to good use :)
