    Inspired by the custom photos shared by Type-R over in the "Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Grand Maximus and Greatshot" thread.

    Like everything I paint, this is painted with enamel paints, brushed on by hand. The silver on the backpack/gun barrels was sprayed on using a spray can.

    I don't plan on buying a Grand Maximus, I just made the shell out of a PotP Cloudburst for the fun of it.

    What do you think? Should I repaint the Cloudburst inner robot (Micronus) into a tiny little Grand?
    The chest details look enough like Cerebros and the head might be pasable as the Headmasters version of Cerebros (Fortress).

    Thanks for taking a look.

    Yep, the green is custom.

    I mixed olive green and primary blue Humbrol enamel to get the exact colour I wanted. I mixed my own pale gray too.

    Only the yellow is straight from the tin. And the silver is Australian Export chrome spray paint.

    I'm going to do Waverider next.

    I needed to find a store that had a Cloudburst in stock. PotP stuff is pretty scarce around me, so I had to go a little out of my way to get the base figure.

    Expect an thread with photos to pop up sometime next week. :)
