    Im nearly finished with this project and I'm waiting for a pair of the new mighty fakebusker knuckle hands to arrive for this prime.
    I have repainted the whole figure and applied the water slide decals which came with the kit.

    You know the knuckle busters won't fit this kit, right?? The kit uses a ball joint into the wrist, and the knucklebusters use a balk joint into the hand..

    That looks awesome! The only thing it seems to be missing is the small blue flames on those red pieces that stick out above his abs.

    added more weathering, gold details and added some cracks in the wind shields to give him more of a hard core battle damaged look

    I really disliked how the original windows looked so I used window tint behind the window panels to give a more realistic move look

    When did you order those hands? Can't wait to see them in action on this bad boy...

    My only concern is that the surfaces on the DMK are too clean and nice, that the powdery texture of the hands might be jarring.
