    Did some washes of neon orange for more added flame detail, Most of the mod was fixing the head, the crest being almost horizontal drove me nuts, so i chopped it off and reglued along with the rubber forehead pieces to be more vertical like it should be.

    I like what you have done man.
    Paint looks great.
    It also has an Egyptian feel to it. Maybe Transformers ROF VS Night at the Museum
    at the box office:)

    thanks!

    Yeah i just dont understand why they did the head the way they did, its supposed to be like an egyptian head dress, vertical, but they pointed it back, its not like it would have gotten away in vehicle mode.

    Your welcome my friend.
    It really does look killer and the cartoon "Mummies Alive" came to mind when I saw it:)

    ill be doing a proper photoshoot this weekend. The weathering looks alot better without the flash and nice lighting.

    I didnt want to go for uber-realistic, just what it might look like if Hasbro did a few more paintapps.

    I feel you overdid the wash, but it still looks good.

    again, the flash shows more of the wash than you can see with the naked eye, better pictures will help.

    I like it as it is shown in the pics.
    But a camera flash can really distort how a custom paint job comes out.
    Still I'm looking forward to more pics:)

    hard to do a tutorial, didnt take pics as i did it. i basically just chopped off the head crest at a seam, and reglued it and a higher angle, and glued the rubber forehead pieces to it for accuracy and support.
