    I agree, ckhtiger. He did a great job on this and it certainly is one of the best ones I've seen.

    If I'm not mistaken, the head is from Classics Astrotrain. As a matter of fact, I also have one of these about 2/3 of the way complete, using that very head (with a few slight mods to it).

    Keep up the great work, bro!

    I DID have one of these WIP ages ago, but I melted the sled part in a fit of impatience during a tough dye bath *heh* oh well, now that we're getting a real one, I don't feel so bad anymore :lol

    Thanks guys!! The head is a slightly moded Classics Astrotrain. The thingy on the shoulder I was going to use it as a possible shoulder mount for a gun, but never panned out and I forgot to remove it. :D

    Thanks for the kind words guys! :) 

    The paint I used was Krylon Red Pepper and the the other paints were a variety of Ral Partha, Testors and Games Workshop paint.
    Wombat King...feel free to use it. The color I used on the bumpers was Ral Partha Steel. Happy I could help :)

    The interior of the sled detail is particularly well done. Great work.
