    I updated my Breakaway http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/249283-rotf-breakaway.html but modding the canopy. To allow for more head articulation, I just took the front of the canopy and glued it to the back part. So now, the entire canopy lifts up giving the head more room. It's no longer accurate to the video game art but I don't care about that. I had to cut a little piece to free the front part. I may cut a little more so that the canopy can rest lower in bot mode.

    I like your mod...but imo, I still feel he could use some camoflage pattern.

    Personally, I like the digital camo patterns like this one :

    Then you'd only have to add dark grey & a bif of lighter grey on top of the base black.

    The camos would be cool, but this figure was a bitch to paint for me for some reason. I am done with this guy.
