    Hello all. This is a custom that I decided to repaint after feedback from the last time I did him. I mainly went and re did his upper half. I airbrushed everything in Model Masters Chrome sliver and then airbrushed over that in Clear Red. I removed the swivel parts from his gun and then joined the 2 remaining parts together with epoxy and the gave it a black base coat and dry brushed it it Aluminum. It was highlighted in spots with Florescent Red/Orange. For added detail I painted around the windows in chrome silver. Unfortunately when it got clear coated, it dulled the chrome. The Windshield was also removed and repainted in light blue. You can see from the old pic I put up, what I changed. C&C Welcome and wanted. He'll be going up on ebay very soon.

    Thanks for looking.

    Well, I'll be honest. I've never liked this figure. I dislike pushbutton gimmicks immensely.

    Your paintjob of it, however, is pretty good. Lends a very 'cartoon' look to it. :)

    Looks good man, I've done this one several times and it's so much better when it's been painted. Your paint apps are pretty clean man but you should try to pick up a fine detail brush and just touch up some of those bleed parts like the 2 square yellow parts in his waist and just around the silver parts on his shoulders around the exhaust. After that, it'll be A1 man! Nice. Any other 'classics' customs??

    There's no more gimmik. I got rid of it all together. I didn't like it either.
