    Pretender number 3!

    To keep the scout-sized theme going I started with Lander and Diver, I used an energon Windrazor. Paints used were citadel blood red, regal blue and ice blue, and revell gold.

    The face didnt come out quite aswell as I hoped due to it being so small and me not being such a great painter (yet) but otherwise I'm really proud of this one. I'm glad I opted for gold rather than the yellowey colour in the series.

    Just Phoenix/Cloudburst left to go and I'll have a complete set of Autobot Pretenders!

    (note: I'm aware the legs are on the wrong way in the bot mode pics, I didn't realise until I was transforming it and couldn't be bothered to take the photos again :p )

    Aside from a few areas you could touch up and such, this piece looks really fantastic! Gold can sometimes be hard to pull off, but you did a nice job. Excellent character-to-mold choice as well. I hope we see more from ya :thumb

    I was JUST thinking about who would make a good Metalhawk base. I'm not sure I'd go with your choice, but it works very well here. Great work! Always fun to see Masterforce get it's much-deserved love.

    I was waiting for the next repaint in your line of Masterforce characters :) 
    I think it came out great, except for some sloppy lines in the paint, but practice makes perfect. Looking forward to Phoenix/Cloudburst!

    Eventually, I have most of the characters planned out and then I do them as I can get a hold of the figures. I'll probably start the Decepticon Pretenders once Ive done Phoenix.
