    I think this was the fourth custom I ever started, and he was a bugger along the way. This was the first custom I really had problems with...paint rubbing issues, couldn't get a pin back in to hold the head and dropped a part during spraying and it picked up dirt, had to wipe it down and start again but it did affect the finish. Overall, fairly happy with this but as soon as I can pick up another version of this mold I will have another crack at this one.
    If anyone cares, I used Movie Fracture for this mold as I preferred the black limb attachments to the gray, however in hindsight I will go with a Mirage figure for future attempts to help issues with white spraying and rubbing.
    And yes, photo 4 is rubbish. Tried to delete it but it has stayed.

    Excellent. I like it.

    Of course, there already is a Shattered Glass Mirage so it probably would've made more sense just calling it 'Diaclone Mirage'.

    Look nice! I did this guy too, I think I used the same character you used but I turned him into a battle damaged Mirage. Just really spend good quality time with those rub spots and you'll knock em down. Overall, it looks great, good job!

    I always like seeing this mold in new colors. Well done!
