    I thought the Frenzy figure that came with Barricade could use some more posability. So I started cutting him apart.

    In the top of the picture is the drill I used to drill holes in Frenzy for pieces of wire that stick out of the body. I couldn't find the right wire so I used a couple of staples and cut those apart. I also cut away a lot of plastic that shouldn't be there in the first place. Should've cut away some more. I might try this a second time.

    I used a flat black enamel basecoat (Revell Matt 8)

    [​IMG]
    Then I dry-brushed the pieces with enamel silver (Revell 99/66). A couple of coats, because Frenzy looks pretty new. All decepticons (except Megatron) do. The Autobots look old and worn.

    [​IMG]
    I put in some gold details and the signature blue eyes. The gold was Enamel (Revell 94) and I used acrylic blues for the eyes (Citadel, Storm blue then ultra marines blue, and then a mixture of ultra marines blue and ghostly grey)

    Finished!

    In his regular position. It still transforms and fits into Barricade too.

    Wow, that's not just some improvement. It's a 500% improvement!

    Great minds think alike I suppose! This is really nice, I wish I thought of dry brushing when I did mine.


    Excellent!:thumb

    It's a couple of hours work. + a barricade figure.
