    Reshelled over the Universe Hound using various model kits. Mainly, a 1/32 scale safari jeep from the 80's, a tamiya oversized 1/32 scale jeep, weaponry from a tamilya 1/35 weapons kit, and tons of scratch building. Decals were rounded up from a 1/35 scale military kit, a 1/48 F-16, and some were home made using the testors Custom Decal System. Paints are Model Master Testors Enamels and sprays. The main color used is Olive Drab.

    The WIP thread is http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/250399-hound-wip.html

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, excellent work, Ninos! I love that animated gif up top and everything about this custom looks super pro. The paint apps are smooth, the colors look great (wasn't sure about 'em at first), but overall this is one beautiful piece of work, bro. And that Ravage looks great along side him.

    What did you use for the custom base/action stand? Something you made or picked up somewhere? It works great with this. Can't wait to see what you do next! (After your Jazz, I mean). ;)

    This Hound could faceroll any other Classics Hound figure. Effing beautiful, man! I with HasTak's Hound was more like this one. You turned a Warthog into a Jeep - I like it!
