    This is a pretty obvious re-paint,so obvious i cant belive hasbro havent done it themselves,however Apex Prime did a Fantastic Digi-bash of Scorponok a while back wich really inspired me to tackle the big guy.
    Actualy this was a bit of a nightmare project,took way longer than i expected & i managed to scratch my cornea at work,so i couldnt paint for a week[V]
    First of all i tried making Scorponok a headmaster but the head was just too small and i ended up scraping that idea.

    So i went for a few Weapons upgrades instead.
    First of all i took the rather puny looking cannons & extended the barrels using aliminium & plastic tubing.I then attached them with rare earth magnets.

    Next i made Scorponoks shield out of a piece of Zoid i had lying around & added a couple of scythes of a 40k dark eldar vehicle,again this is attached with rare earth magnets.

    Finaly i made his gun,this was made out of Armarda Smokescreens crane gun with a load of aircraft kit & 40k bitz.

    Scorponok was painted with Games workshop paints,mainly Dark angels green,Dwarf Bronze,Burnished gold & a custom mixed purple.

    that is gorgeous! There have been a lot of scorpinok repaints from the armada version, but this is by far the best.

    This piece looks fantastic, man :thumb  It makes me wish I hadn't sold my Energon Scorpy. Paint jobs like this remind me of what kitbashing is all about: taking a mediocre toy and making it into something fantastic. Well done man :thumb
