    Hi all.

    Here is a repaint and slight mod of WfC Megatron, into his pre-war, mining/driller mode. I definitely took liberties with the color scheme, the original is more of a warm gray base with brown/red highlights, but I liked how the tan looked and differentiated him more from the original color scheme. I'll probably add some more accents and panel lining after I live with him for a bit.

    Painted with Testors Model Master Acrylics, and the drill is a Kotobukiya kit. Excuse the iPhone photos, but that's all I have handy and was anxious to post.

    Looks really good! I like the slightly altered transformation to set them appart

    That looks amazing! I especially like the foreshadowing of the back of the drill mode...

    I already love this mold, but I must say that this is absolutely gorgeous...taking it to the next tier for sure in my books.

    I love what you've done here.

    Purposeful or not, I lam diggin' the fact that he is sans any 'Con symbols, except for the one molded into his back.

    The new drill attachment, the paint work...all top shelf stuff sir.

    glad to see more work from you!

    Well, I think that represents the transformation from Miner to "Peace through Tyranny" quite well!
