    Painted this guy up the same weekend as Scourge, but the gloss black took ALOT longer to dry, and then I got lazy about taking the pics.

    Anyway....


    Mostly a straight repaint of RTS Perceptor. I added a styrene faceplate to better differentiate him from Perceptor.

    According to his Bio, Magnificus is/was gladiator with an arsenal of weapons, so I figured I'd arm him up a bit.

    I gave him a set of Gen Blurr's pistols, and added some "c-clips" so they could store on his arms. I figured he should have some gladiator type weapons too, and built him a small sword and flail type weapon from some Gundam leftovers. The new weapons unfortunately do not store anywhere in vehicle mode.

    Magnificus' vehicle mode parts were painted with Model Master Gloss Black for a nice high-gloss finish, while the robot mode parts were painted with Semi-gloss Black. Tamiya Clear Red and Krylon Silver were also used.
