    not much more to say that the title doesnt already lol not as good as the botcon one, but then i was almost done with this when they made their announcement lol still kinda amazing how close our matched each others (i tried to make mine match the cartoon. hence the baby blue and white)

    i also did thrust and dirge, but havent taken pics of them yet

    Very nice; possibly a little pale for my personal tastes, but since you were going for a 'toon look, I think you've done a bang-up job. :D 
    Only thing I might point out is that your wing stripes might like to be retouched a bit, as they look a little rough. You might try masking tape, or as I do, just take it really slowly and use existing panel lines as a guide.

    Out of curiosity, what paints did you use?

    yeah, the wing stripes gave me some trouble. thought about tape but decided not to use it. i think they look good considering lol looking at the bigger pics here on my puter, may want to give it another coat of blue. im seeing alot of the gray underneath trying to bleed through

    as for paints, i used testors enamle (or however its spelled). doesnt stay on as well and tends to scrape off against other parts (the thrust i did is bad at this, specially the wings swinging down over the arms), but its bout what i can afford. which is good considering i dont do much repainting anymore

    and im not trading him :p  lol

    Looks cool. I hadn't seen one with the canopy painted yellow or the face painted white before. Those little touches really make him look like he's right out of the cartoon, which is great.
