    This is the nth fake kabaya model kit I assembled and painted.

    The plastic is, as always, cheap, but I am becoming expert on this :) 
    I choose metallic colors, and keeping in mind the anime version, not the original toy one.

    I panel lined him a bit, and dirtened his face to look more "bad".
    A decepticon symbol on it and that's all!

    Well, not "all". I had some problems with an half fist it was missing in the kit, and also a pivot where to attach a foot was missing. Bad quality mold :-(
    I reconstructed the fist with green matter, and replaced the pivot with the same plastic of the mold. Now it's full working and still transformable.

    He is fully transformable, although I wait for paint to cure and then add some super glue to prevent scratching, before transforming.
    He just miss the electronics :)

    Ebay:
    I find it oddly amusing how your Galvatron, which is about 1/3rd the size of the actual toy, still has loads more detail. Great job! :) 

    Where do you get this model kit, by the way?

    Those Kabaya kits resist paint like there is no tomorrow. It's almost impossible to prevent chippng. Be very careful when transforming it.

    Awesome Work. It's incredible and depressing at the same time... 1/3 knock off model kit ends up looking 10x better than the orginal toy!
