Hello, Its been awhile since I have posted a new custom. I have been working on lots of stuff doing at least a custom or two a week. I'll start my upcoming string of Radicon posts with Universe Powerglide. He started off as a Target Clearance Stormcloud (Purple translucents) but I needed a Powerglide since I missed the Universe release. I wanted to Go with a realistic A-10 as the base. I don't know about anyone else but I have never seen a maroon A-10 warthog or thunderbolt. I started by masking the translucent parts and giving a flat black primer coat. next for the Aircraft parts I dry brushed on some Aircraft gray so I could preserve the rivet holes and panel lines. But wait, Powerglide is a maroon color and its his signature color. To get him to resemble his G-1 likeness I painted his robot parts a custom dark red. Next I did t some detail work and glued some painted GI JOE CLAW missiles to his forearms/landing gear. If I had 2 more I'd ad them to. The final touch was getting my wife to add the Autobot reprolabels to the rear stabilizers. And there he is, G-1 inspired, Real-life resembling Universe Powerglide. I have thought about getting an A-10 model for the decals but I haven't brought myself to do it. I think 1:72 or 1:64 would be the closest scales. Enjoy and Comment.
