    Revisited this guy and changed a few things.

    The dragon heads are more streamlined
    The lower legs are different and offer more articulation and height and a different transformation
    The head is different
    Alclad paint used on the metal bits, highlights and different tones
    Different shading and rust streaks
    This one has a semi gloss (satin? but for tough autobots...) finish

    I really like this guy and wish I could take better photos, they really dont encapsulate how good he looks when you have him in front of you.

    He will be for sale and will be on eBay at the weekend.

    Thanks all

    Pretty good, but the lack of tail makes him look all wonky in alt mode. Nice use of the scattorshot mold. Are those Hun-grr's legs I see as well?

    this is quite cool - as someone that repainted this mold into cindersaur, I know what an arse the rub points are and is bloody annoying to put back together!

    Point taken, maybe for version 3???

    Cheers guys

    Yes it was a red dragon toy, didnt know it was a power ranger though.
    The torso is from universe dropshot, the centre of the chest filled and sanded and the autobot symbol placed on top.

    I rarely dismantle figs before painting, I figure if i cant see it it doesnt need painting.
    Thanks for the comments

    He looks awesome in bot mode. I love Doublecross, and this really does have a lot of his character! I'd have preferred to see a leg transformation more like the original though. And I'm a little surprised that you didn't use the way that Dropshot' arms fold onto his back in the dragon mode. All together is does look really good.

    Thanks!

    The first version I did had the Gen 1 figures lower legs and head, I just opted for this as I had different parts this time around. I like both versions, this one I like as the bot mode I feel is a bit better.

    The arms can be folded all the way back but this limits the posability of the arms and also, to a lesser extent, the wings.
    Thanks for the input, maybe if I ever do a version 3 it would amalgamate the best of the first 2 versions .
