    Straightforward repaint of MP Ramjet. Only mod done was to permanently glue the rotating engines with the engines exposed. Client wanted them always visible, and the decals went right over the hinges anyway.

    Decals were all custom made. G2 'Con logos are the same as the G1 styled ones I made for the other seekers: Silver painted decal paper, topped with a 'Con logo printed on clear decal paper.

    Purple and turquoise are custom mixes of Tamiya and Model Master. Both have a slight metallic flake, the purple more so. Semi-gloss black was used for the wings and torso, with some Silver highlights.

    I swore I was done with the MP11 mold but if Takara puts out anything close to what you pulled off @Jarrod I'm in.

    Thanks everyone!

    Can't say as I blame you. They're not the easiest figure to work with. Still, I hope Takara milks the mold and gives us their version soon.

    Hey can you describe your painting process. Did you have to completely disassemble him? Any sanding involved, primer and paint. Air brush or hand painted? Thanks
