    Hey guys! Flexing my bragging rights! This was my entry for the Headmaster/3Xer repaint contest over at Sector70.com. Had to take any scout class figure and paint him up as a Headmaster or a Triplechanger. He's done up from a Cybertron Lugnutz (in case you couldn't tell). I used Testors Light Blue and Sun Yellow. Both are actually brushed on. Flames on the tank were done by hand and the ones on the rear were blue flame decals that I painted to match. BOTH THIS AND CHROMEDOME ARE EBAY BOUND!!

    I was actually never aware of Armada NB (being somewhat of a G1 purist) until this contest, but I suppose it could be perceived as such. But certainly not my intention.

    This is a great choice for Nightbeat. The altmode, the flames, the head design. Nice job. :)
