    So this started as a random drift into space ship build. Got suggestions to make it Divebomb the whole team followed. I sign off on the build tonight, time to paint. There's a more extensive build thread over at sector 70...

    So I need some recommendations for a good airbrush.

    Base figures are a Prime=Rampage. Drift=Divebomb. Landmine=Razorclaw.
    Snowcat+the other landmine= Headstrong and Tantrum.

    I'm really pleased with how they turned out.

    Build is 99% done, even though Tantrum is in pieces, easy stuff left to do on him. Paint is 95%. Then I have some foil apps to put on, stickers, and seal.

    I was really worried about the paint, but I've got a good mix, and once the drybrushing went on things started looking good. All in all it's been a good project. A long project. Looking forward to posting finished pieces.

    Knoom842...I primed them mostly whole, took them apart where it made sense. So much scratch building that a lot of the screws/connectors cannot be undone.

    Yeah, I bought that toy twice because of all of his equipment, all those guns, the rotor saw, hell, his face is Predakings face now. I have a bunch of joints left over, some armour bits. The other four in the line were stupid, but that one guy was great.

    Some Takara 8 inch action figure line that got released in the U.S. for those that don;t know.

    Very little painting left. Need to put some insignias on them and then take some proper photos. Been a long project but fun. Looking forward to getting them merged together. Soon...so soon.
