    Hello!

    Just thought I'd share a commission someone had me do. I"m just waiting on the oversized sticker sheet from Repro Labels. I'm pretty happy with the results. This turned out better than my first one.

    This particular oversized Superion is the second version. The first version had a better color scheme, especially on Silverbolt. The first version of Silverbolt was way closer to the G1 colors. This new version was totally different. I had to repaint every single piece! That was a pain.

    Anyways enough rambling. Hope you like him.

    How oversized is oversized? As in, how tall is he in combined mode?

    Thanks Red,

    I hardly have any time to do this stuff anymore. But it's always satisfying after completing a project. :) 

    Bigbot3030 this is a pic of my last Superion. It's the same scale:

    Thanks everyone. Repro Labels applied. ALL DONE. Check out the new pics :) 

    TronCity: For the red, whites and blacks I used Krylon Fusion. The grey on Skydive is from Tamiya Spray can (haze grey). The gold is from Tamiya as well.

    looks far better with the repro labels even though your painting is always really clean and neat, nice work on the big bastard.

    back in the day on macross customs we used to fill some of the bootleg cavities with epoxy putty to make them feel heavier :) 

    i'm sure the buyer is going to be very happy :0

    Oooh..filling the cavities is an awesome tip. I'll have to try that on my next one.

    Thanks again for hooking me up with this bot. :)

    Lookin sharp! Are you going to throw any added articulation his way? Even a new pair or hands would make a big difference.
