    oh yeah ...theres going to be some bronze highlights in there as well...this was my first attempt today at drybrushing.....im just happy the base is down without too much issues...there will be some more green and other colors to hopefully make the robotics 'pop'

    It looks really nice, but maybe add something to break the gray up a bit.

    Other than that it scored an 11.

    This just confirms my suspicion that Stratosphere is a decent mold, destroyed by a god-awful paint job.

    This looks awesome, I agree that some lighter green will be nice.

    I saw this over in the Cool Stuff thread. I personally love this figure, because it's very unique, and your paint apps have really given it a more real feel.

    I only wish that a third party would come out with a shuttle/gun that's supposed to go on top of the alt mode as what was originally planned...for a reasonable price. I've thought of modeling one myself from styrene and a Classics weapon (ie: Rodimus' gun), but can't seem to part with it. For now, I gave my Stratosphere twin scythe blades that fit the hands.
