    So here is my first TF custom. I decided to sort my mismatching Bruticus bits while waiting on parts for my g1 Shackwave scratch-build of doom.
    Vortex is the first, with Brawl and Onslaught to follow.
    The hardest part was those ball joints, Big Thanks to SonOfNemesis for the guidance (though I couldn't get his results). Finally got something near what I wanted using RIT and acetone and 48hours. Still some rub points to sort and touch ups.
    Took some pictures with an original I had (sorry, no other originals for the other two coming).

    Nice man, I have this little guy on a waiting list to do as well since I replaced him with the FP figures. I like the color choices you have here, cool!

    Thanks alot! I wanted to make him close to G1 coloring, but the grey was too light and wasnt going to fit the rest of the Bruticus team, so I brushed a GW armor wash over it and I think it turned out nicely. I also used GW black under the Testors Model Master blue for the head and limbs and it came out with this neat shifting effect as you look from different angles (which doesnt come out as nice in the photos).
