    I drilled the holes of the weapons to make them look more real, and then cover him with acrilics. Not much can be done with the vehicle mode, though.

    Hope you like it.

    nice painting. the holes also add a nice touch. I don't really have a problem with the alt-mode, as not only is he small, but it just looks like he has some big tanks of some sort lyin' in the truck bed.

    That's a lot of detail for such a small custom. Good work.

    I feel happy, some of the gods of kitbash saying nice words to something I made. Thank you very much, guys. You rock. :bowdown: :thumbs2: 

    Regarding the figure, I still don't like the fists that appear through the rear window in vehicle mode, and yes, it was a pain to paint that yellow over the black (I had to apply more than 6 hands).

    Oh, I have a little update. I will take a pic later. I found a little fire piece of Megablocks that fits perfectly at the end of right gun. It looks like a flamethrower or something, it's cool in its "tininess" (does that word exists?).

    Thank you again for your comments. I have a job and a wife and not a lot of time (or money) to make customs, that's why I make this little pieces. But I can see a new job in the near future, with more free time (and more income) to spend in my hobbie. Your words and work inspire me, so I will make big customs soon.

    See you.

    You do good work Paul, I've always liked your customs :D 

    Its not how big or how small the custom that makes it, its the workmanship that counts :thumb

    Nemesis, I use a very small pencil. Everybody can paint, you just need the right tools.

    Plowking, I've always loved your customs too.

    EDIT: Added two pics, showing the fire piece attached to the gun, and the original and painted piece of Megablocks.
