    I thought the Headrobots Snake repaint was cool, but lacked a good body to go with. I thought an airplane or jet would be mode appropriate and chose the ROTF Highbrow mold. It has a unique look and the tech spec readout module fit (after some work anyway) into the chest nicely. The area behind where the head fits had to be trimmed off. I made a piece from a bottle cap to fit into the area in plane mode (no one would probably have seen it if I didn't point it out).

    I know others have used Classics Powerglide, but the scales would be off and Classics Darkwing's colors already looks too similar.

    He is painted with an airbrush in metallic colors, inked, and dry-brushed to show as much detail as I could pack in. The mold is very detailed, but it didn't really show on Highbrow. I think the colors make it look more modern than a WWII plane. I used Reprolabels for Decepticon and Cobra symbols.

    I still can't help but admired the hell out of the theory, design, and execution of this peice. I would love to see a retail version of a cobra commander (old snake) head master.
