    Well it has been a really long time since my last post showing an actual finished custom. I didnt have much time to customize unfortunately.
    Sideways was going on forever, the original looked quite bad colorwise although the detailing was quite high on the model itself... well I'm sure everyone knows that :wink: 

    The chest pieces really did not make much sense. Immediatly I looked for solutions. Originally I fixed the chest pieces in a way they look more like shoulder pads but with balljoints. Unfortunately they kept breaking off, so after a lot of trying to make this work I opted for the Ball magnet option (a magnet that holds everyhing togeter by rotating around so it points into the right direction and also allows more precise positioning.)

    His hands I hated so much, that I gave him some new ones.

    This repaint was based on the awesome white Audi R8, used colors were. White, a lot of greys and blacks for the internal parts, silver and gold

    Glad this one is finished and even more glad it all worked out.

    Wow, that's beautiful! That mold had amazing detail but the factory paint apps were a joke. You really brought it out of the dark dude. Great job!

    thanks for the great comments, to be honest I was very unsure about making him white, I wanted something different for this one and knew for the car it would work, but didn't know what the final result would be on the robot. Reading these comments, I guess it was good to stick with the original plan. thx

    Awesome! Your paint-job on him is very sleek.
    What did you use for the articulated hands? Gundam's?
    And how about the Audi logo? Is it decal also? Very nice and neat.
