    That is an understatement. For a voyager figure it is SERIOUSLY complicated!

    I've removed every pin on him and it was not fun.Rub is a serious issue with that mold.

    The red and blue wiring detail on the back and gun is a really nice touch. The 'copter mode looks stunning!

    Beautiful. Always love your work. Precise paintwork, that panel lining, and the back side with all the wires is just awesome.

    Sorry to hear about the name issue.

    Nope.... I use a custom mixed wash and a really, really fine paint brush. The trick is to get the wash very watery, and let it seep into the crevices.

    Z, this looks really nice! It's very clean work. I'm not to keen on the bright yellow windshield but that's just my opinion. Still kicks total a$$ !!

    Man, this thing looks super clean. Awesome work there!

    Do you have to do anything special to get the cockpit and fans above it to fit together so well in alt mode? Mine just won't stay together well but it's hard to tell what's causing the problem.

    Customer request, thanks though!

    I did have to shave about 1/16" from the inside surfaces between the cockpit and fans. They were almost as frustrating as the legs.

    Kind of a trial and error with the inner surfaces? I gotta do something about mine. It's the only thing that bugs me about that figure.

    Wow, I love Skyhammer out of the box, but this is great work. My only sticking point is the solid windows, I'd have left those transparent. I can't believe you disassembled the whole thing down to the pins, that must have taken forever.
