    Great character in the movie, and now he has a more accurate paintjob.

    He has the same problem as ROTF Sideways: Hasbro had too much red plastic, so they gave it to him for no apparent reason. He looks so much better with drybrushed wings.

    I think you should've left the turbines red just a little bit. Do you plan to paint the rest of him? It looks cool, but the wings really stick out now. I also think it would be neat if the veins in the wings were still red. I might do that to my figure.

    I considered doing a red wash on the wings, but it would wreck the drybrushing, or involve me getting a red acrylic paint for one project.

    It's hard to tell because I use my phone's camera (i.e. not great quality), but the rest of him is actually drybrushed too.

    I like the new silver! His turbine blades are a dark red in the movie. Are you going to do that?

    Ah, right. I think I can see it now. It just doesn't pop as much as the silver on the wings.
