    Looking great! I had contemplated doing the same to mine but meh....he's so darn fiddly.
    Are you gonna repaint the flames and add pin stripes and chrome?
    BTW just a little thing i thought i should point out is the bands of red on his upper arm under the round bit that forms his shoulder joint should be blue, not red.

    Thanks guys! The arm band has been noted my friend, thanks! I'll have to take care of that. I won't be adding flames on this as I can't get stencils for them for this guy. I am working on making some but I need to be a bit more experienced with photoshop to make them actually accutate and to better fit the dimensions of this figure.

    The shade of red is basically a couple different shades painted over eachother to create this red. Thanks for noticing that Tobuttica!

    I don't think I really understand your question? I think you can just post up your custom work man but by starting a new thread on it, not necessarily in mine though.

    Thanks man, almost done with it! I think the swords will really accent it nicely if my customer decides to make them movie like.

    That's the plate that the trailer would connect to if there were a trailer. It is referred to as a 5th wheel even though it has nothing to do with an actual wheel per se. You can see it in the last 2 pics. Thanks Hakka!
