    This is agreat looking custom. The paint is fantastic. My only gripe is that it just doesn't scream "Kup" to me without a new head sculpt.

    Definitely an awesome detailing job!! Looks like he intended it to be an evil Kup hence the red eyes too, that's cool. Wow, that hood really has a shine to it!

    Nice. I never thought that mold was the greatest but you made it look ten times better. Well done!

    I'd suggest replacing the license plate and adding some sort of detailing to the body, like stickers or paints.

    I always wanted to see one of these painted up like Kup...now I have. It works well for a TFM version...I agree with the comments on the paint apps, nice work.

    I agree, the paint work does look good....nice job there.

    I too would like to see a more "Kup" looking head though.

    Thanks everyone for your constructive comments. I will try to work on a more "Kup-like" head on my next project - just for fun!

    Cheers,
