    Other than a little more paint on the ball joints to stiffen him up a little more, I think he's done. here's my take on Dustup and awesome little guy from Ramrider - I dubbed him Range Finder. He is now Hounds new Target Master...

    Not that I'm biased or anything, but he looks rather awesome. :D 
    The paintjob is brilliant, and makes him look like he belongs with Hound without being a straight transfer of his deco.
    Love the name, too! :thumb

    That's really, really nice!

    Thinking of getting one of these myself for Scourge. How much prep does it need before painting, out of interest?

    almost zero prep. just trim the part connectors off, blow any remaining particles out of the deep areas (there was hardly any, but it did find it's way into my paintbrush) and paint

    Ten years? Blimey. Glad I could contribute to getting you painting again. We'll make a kitbasher of you yet! ;)
