    My version of the red lambo twin for my classics collection. Just a little fun here re-painting the Gen. Red Alert fig. a beautiful Candy Apple Red. 2-step process using a Diamond dust base coat (metallic flake) and over coating that with a transparent candy apple red. Also got one one of the first edition kits by Nemesisred for the head/gun/rocket launcher. Modded the lightbar from the orig. figure to make his jetpack from the show using a Halo Jumper figure backpack repainted. Topped off with some good ol' fashioned shiny metallic reprolabels for his chest emblem and liscense plate. Enjoy Folks!

    Thanks man! That's an amazing compliment. Hangin' with Sabby (on a custom quality level, of course:)  )is great company!
    She is at that. Her mettallics rule! Thanks for the kind words!
    Thanks! The add-on kit was pretty darn good for the price. I want to say that it was around $20 (this is ver. 1, so the missile is different and molded into the launcher, unlike his new version). The only things I had to do to it besides paint it was sand down the missile launcher peg a little to fit, Dullcote the gun then paint it(arrived a little tacky from the paint overcoat he gave it), and drill the hole a little bigger for the head. Mine came just casted in red and he base coated them black for me, but now it looks like you can get them so they're painted mostly from him (I'm sure all i had to do is request it as well). Hope this helps! thanks again!
    Thanks for the Bay Rodi!

    As a huge fan of the lambo twins I have to say these are gorgeous. Very nice work on the paint jobs.
