    ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooootaaaayy, firstly MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLLIDAYS!!! HOLLY CRAP, ITS A WHITE ONE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE LAST 3 OR 4 YEARS!!! Now, onto the topic. So got my hands on Uni. Cyclonus. Such a great figure, damn near perfect representation of the character.. out side of the paint... lol, incase you guys havent knoticed this about me, im a paint nut, I likey the painting. Anyway, I didnt like how the light gray plastic contrasted on the chest and the shoulders. so first I started out by painting his face with Game workshop's gunmetal. made a big difference, then I figured, hmmmmm, gunmetal on those outta place light grey chest pieces.. Looked a lot better, but..... still wasnt right in my mind... took the arms off, and out of the shoulders, and stripped 'em back to their light grey. Started mixin up some paint and WHALLA! Almost perfest Cyclonus purple with just 2 colors! Im happy now. Then I start to look at the rest of the light grey plastic on his arms... and his wings... then his legs....Then his ears... They didnt look bad, just not.... shiney.. I like shiney things, im simple minded like that though. So I broke out Model Masters custom laqure Chrome Silver, thinned it out and sprayed all those parts, re-painted the for amrs where they should be purpley. NOOOOOOOOOOOOWWW IM HAPPY!!! here some pics.
    Im very proud of him, he still need just a FFFEWW very minor touch ups, that Im not sure you can even see in the pictures, but they are there and tehy will bug me when I look at him. But, hes done for now, thanks for looking!!

    Wow, thanks for the posted Christmas present. I'm floored that you think that about my work.

    I'm going to be adding/modifying a Nightstick for my Alt Ricochet here soon, so I'll have an extra Universe Cyclonus. He just may come your way, despite what you think! :lol

    Well sQ7 (posted your initials wrong last time), if u want me to repaint him for you I will. I'd do a commission for ya. I'd even do commission trade of sorts, if I like ur mod, which I'm sure we all will.

    Gee, I'm starting to think that I could do some commissions with this guy... I didn't think he was that good. But thank you all for liking my work with him. I'm hoping that I can find a proper green for hound as my next project.
    F_R's hound really inspired me to make one. With out the gundam hands, but I might take and try the whole rubber wheel thing though. Thanks again all!!
