    For my 1st kitbash ever, I wanted to make an homage to one of my favorite 80's figures, Voltar. Here you see the Iron grenadier I started with, and the Voltar figure I referenced:

    I didn't want to use as bright a magenta, so I went with a metallic purple. I think I might want to paint the tubing either gold or purple...any ideas? I did paint the Shoulder pads but I think the homage works better if I leave them off. Now I just need to find a Vulture for my S6 Voltar. :D  Please leave your comments!

    I like it. Everything works well, and the color choice is excellent. Very clean lines, too.

    Keep up the good work. :thumb

    Man, those paint apps are SLICK! I think you should paint the red parts a dark, metallic purple. GREAT work man! :thumb
