    another project that sat in black enamel primer for almost a year now finally finished.
    basically a straight up repaint of stealthforce hound into the m.a.s.k. gator.
    the only addition was the custom dusty hayes figure that rides in it.he was some kind of matchbox spaceman thing.his legs have been chopped off at the ankles in order to be able to sit in the chairs.
    the orange is all hand painted with tamiya acrylic orange.the silver is drybrushed tamiya also.
    the fog lights and hood decals are all hand cut vinyl.(cutting them by hand and making them actually symmetrical took longer than the rest of the whole repaint)


    attached are pics from the net of the original toy.(i only have the outer shell of the original gator,but no boat, so no cockpit either.)

    be nice to see hasbro repaint and rerelease the stealthforce figures as a bunch of new characters who just happen to look like certain M.A.S.K. and V.E.N.O.M. vehicles

    Perhaps the best use of the worst toys of my least favorite portion of the Transformers franchise. Congratulations, my friend, you win the forums. All of them. Forever.
