    First of all i have to say major kudos to Tinfoil Turkey,Warmachine & Moonstreaker for thier great versions of Brawn from this mold.
    I always felt brawn got a pretty rough deal since G1,i mean has he even appeared in any other range?

    I decided to go with a few minor alterations to the head & Having done more than my fair share of (light) demolitions at work i decided to give the tough-bot a FUBAR

    which is attached using rare earth magnets.

    He was painted with Games Workshop paints (Mainly Catachan green & Brazen Brass)

    Update 21/06.
    I recently added a new demolition weapon to Brawn,a Jackhammer ideal for destroying those stuborn fortifications.

    Also i took a pic of Brawn with his former mold brother Outback.

    Great idea incorporating the fubar as an homage to the original Brawn's hands. Outstanding kitbash.

    Thanks :thumb 
    I did mean to mention that in the description.
    I also should have mentioned that it was made from a bunch of plastic kitchen
    fittings attached to an old 40k tank part.

    Heh. He FUBARs with his fubar... :lolol 
    Nice touch, and nice repaint. I can't quite tell from the lighting, what colour is the chest? At first I thought it was the same green as the rest of him, but on second look it looks more like a sort of antique gold colour.

    Once I've finished my current repaint, I'll have to get back to my version of this...

    Cheers guys.
    Alt mode pics now added.
    Only a few minor changes,meshed up the windows,added a tow hook,put a vent in the bonnet
    And carved away a small area on the underneath for the Fubar to fit in.
