    Just finished a repaint of Onslaught in a similar style to the Jetfire I posted a while back. Again, I used Testors acrylic military flats for the base and accent colors, and flat enamel for the black wash.

    I wanted to make him look like a tough and battle hardened old soldier, so I put Decepticon "badges" on his shoulders and a big "tattoo" across his back. I also stuck on a few stickers I had left from a Zoid kit.

    That's a real different look and, again, a neat reinterpretation of the dude's color scheme. Excellent work.

    Thanks! I'd love to do the entire Bruticus set, but I can't justify dropping the $$ on the rest of him just to do a repaint, and the KOs just aren't the same. Maybe I can find a Ruination for cheap.

    Buticus would look fantastic in that scheme. Well done. Very professional looking.

    Thanks for the compliments, all. The next project will either be G1 Scattershot or G1 Silverbolt, since I have a couple quasi-junkers sitting around. I thought about doing up Scattershot in an Autobot Ark motif or maybe an Imperial Star Destroyer flavor; not sure yet.

    Speak of the devil, I was thinking of doing up an old loose G1 Hound I have around. An alternator could be much more evil, though.....good idea.

    I too like the color scheme. It looks very good. I would love to see the complete Bruticus set look like that.

    Thanks! I'm glad you liked my Idea! I would really love to see it once you get it done!

    I wanna do tha combaticons as well, but I wanna ditch the Shuttle and replace him with a aerialbot. For some reason a space shuttle doesn't scream military to me. I alway wondered why they did that.
