    This is a full repaint but since my last post I just added a few more color scheme details. I still need to add some more details here and there and then I'll be completed with this one.

    The most detailed one is the finished product.

    I approve. The only thing is I like the darker red on the arms than the lighter red on the wings. Was that on purpose?

    Yeah, I wanted the armor to look worn out and battle hard. The red on the wings is only new looking because it was still a WIP. I hope these updated pics make it look a bit better.

    * After I posted the pics, the stripes still look brighter. It's prolly because I painted them over white wings and the armor was painted the same red over black primed. Good eye!

    Wow, those new ones look sick. I really like you're style, the worn out greased up kinda look.

    I think it would look better if you added some black, not to his face but to his head, I think it would balance the colors out more and maybe the jetpack too.

    Awesome job though, I wonder how much better it looks in person.

    Good point Iron, I'll have to add some jet pack 'dirt' and a bit more to the head. I wish you could see my stuff in person man ESPECIALLY this one, the camera does it no good and I don't have 'macro' abilities for real close ups.

    I noticed because the same thing happened to me too :)  I painted the armor over the silver and the wings over the white.

    I wish someone would make fastpacks for his legs - that would be cool and perhaps a large gun that pegs underneath (like the macross jets have).

    Yeah, I hear you on that! I wish they had leg armor too.
