    Custom BRAVE MAXIMUS, complete at long last!

    After a LONG hiatus on this guy, he's finally complete!

    Paints used include Testors Model-Master Acrylics: Dark Blue, Dragon Black, Guard's Red, Gunmetal, Kirkin Yellow, and Steel. Tamiya Acrylics: Chrome Silver and Flat Blue. Citadel Mithril Silver, Sunburst Yellow and Skull White. The Indigo shade was a custom mix of Testors Dark Blue, Dragon Black, and Guard's Red, and I wish to hell I'd made a larger bottle of the mixture than I did.

    Parts used included Cybertron Metroplex as the base figure, a G1 Superion Head with a joint from a Neo-Shifter as the neck, and a part from a Gundam Virtue 1/144 Kit for the visor-guard. G1 First-Aid supplied the calf-cannons, and the ankle/forearm blasters are from a GI Joe Tiger Paw vehicle. The waist-cannons are from Energon Stormcloud's energon-weapon.

    The rifle is made from Energon Bulkhead's powerlinx base-weapon, with the scope from Energon Arcee and Armada Megatron's cannon added on. The handle was taken off Cybertron Metroplex's Spark-Drinker weapon. The tower-cannon is simply a repainted and modified Energon Shockblast Cannon, with an Autobot-insignia added from Robots In Disguise Ultra Magnus.

    The ramps are made from the ramps off Robots In Disguise Ultra Magnus, and the minicon-containers from inside Unicron's legs. The helipad-shield is a modified helipad from G1 Countdown. The radar-dishes are made of Lego radar-discs and Cybertron Metroplex parts.

    There's also a fair amount of Styrene work going on, from the styrene used to make minicon ports on the weapons, to the horns on Brave's head, to the Master-Sword which is constructed almost entirely from styrene sheets and tubes, with detail added via a G1 Scavenger drill-missile, and a bead. Plus a couple of parts from a cheap Gundam knockoff. Aves' Fixit-Sculpt was also crucial in the construction.

    I'm going to do a few minor touch-ups here and there, and then Brave Maximus here is going up on eBay. Comments are welcome :)

    Thanks Solrac! I know this one has been a LONG time coming. Sad thing is, the only things that needed to be done before completion were some very minor things. Ah well :)

    yea thats a great dark blue you got there and I haven't seen anyone use RID magnus mini car tracks yet they work great for almost any city mode I bet. the paint job is just great and that shockblast arm makes a fantastic tower and scale weapon.
