    Battled up with a removable back section. No transformation here guys, just hard core bot mode. I do like the arm flaps on so I don't plan on removing them though it did cross my mind.

    Some of the battle damage is less obvious then other spots and some even less obvious then the 'less obvious'. It's really cool in hand to notice that :) 

    Gave him a set of custom smoke stacks too.

    Amazing paint work! I went to town on a Leader Prime with a saw, soldering iron, drill, etc. Really beat him up, but I can't paint battle damage to save my life. Your paint really sells it, well done.

    I absolutely love the depth of the drybrushing. This piece is the best representation (in terms of drybrushing) of the movie-style CG-rendered silver/metal robot mode parts I've seen yet. Kudos! :thumb

    I still think you are a Battle Damage master. You strike the perfect balance of scuffs and blackening/griming. Very nicely done here, SoN!

    Thanks Alex! I might hang onto this one but if I did sell it, I have a buyer interested in this one :) 

    Thanks guys! Damage apps are among my favorite thing to do :) , the paintwork wasn't as fun.

    Thanks Jason, I look forward to your feedback man, especially on these types of customs!!

    WOW, thanks Mampy! That's a BIG compliment for me man!

    Thanks Janeail, I appreciate that!! By the way, good to see updates on your Devy custom!!
