    as shawdy as the universe leader 2 pack was i didnt have many G1 themed megatrons at the time so i loped off his helicopter rottor canon/flap claw. i used a joint from an enrgon yellow scout jeep guy whos name escapes me.

    also what seems a bit astounding to me is that all his colouring was done with a silver sharpie and black fine tip marker

    That looks pretty good for a silver sharpie. I originally thought maybe you drybrushed it on or something.

    See if there is a macro setting on your camera, should help with the focus on the "close up" pictures.

    Other than that, good job. It always bugged me he didn't have a second hand. Nice to see you gave him one.

    It is all silver sharpie and i does stay on GREAT but ALL the oil has to dry off and when i did it the colour smudged off and edges would where off easily but after he has sat on a shelf for like.. a year, the colour is now set. one thing i now thoroughly enjoy about sharpies and detail work (even tho the black has a purple tinge) oh also cuz i have zero painting skills.

    my warthog custom already has silver sharpie on his left shoulder and chest where the silver finish is not. works great.
