    Can't afford the 3d party Megs and don't like the one handed G2 tank version. So, went for a blend of the two.
    Replaced the arms with the two pack Optimus (obviously) and the "cannon" is from the Energon Battle Ravage. I know it was an homage to the G1 cannon, but with a little paint, I think it works pretty well.

    As for paint, I tried somethin I've never done. Hit and miss here, with the washing. Mostly for the red on the inside of the legs. Painted the silver on then wiped/scraped some off to try and give it a worn look. Tried for a new form with a little dammage look to it.

    Trying to improve my paint skills.

    So, what do y'all think? Good, bad, ugly? Lemme have it.

    good concept, I'd go with painting the waist section black to break up the white/chrome. Maybe a little color in the midsection to simulate the G1 homage.

    Hi,
    Good project but maybe using some styrene tube you could elongate his cannon barrel. At the moment it looks a little too small and with Megs size sort of does matter....
    Look forward to his finish.
