    I like constructicons, they are so full of character!

    I have here is the repaint of Long Haul. I like this toy, its so mecha yet strangely alien looking (could be his face). Reminds me of Gundam's ZAKU.
    As with other customs I've given him a fresh coat of metallic paint and weathered him down, but this time i tried holding back so as not to overshadow all those beautiful details built into this toy.

    Comments are most welcome!

    Great Paint job! my only thing and it is just my personal preference is I would have done it in a matte finish and not as glossy.

    but hells yes it looks awesome! I was contemplating repainting the extra one I have... done deal now!

    Wow, man. looks incredible. Improved SO much on the original monochromatic turtle =p..Those molded details really needed the treatment you gave 'em. I like the glossy finish, it looks like a clear green over drybrushed gunmetal/dark metallic.

    How did you do that GREAT weathering? Is it all drybrush? This is exactly what I want to do with so many of my figures!

    Thanks! I like to take photos of my customs the way i take people :) 

    i may want to do one in matt in the future! Thanks for your comments!

    No mods, i hadn't got the tools to do so for now, but thanks !

    Yes! There is alot of drybrush involve in this piece :) 

    I brushed the metals then finished with a top clear coat, and repeat with more dry brushing :)
