    I don’t think so. I can see them through a couple of connections. Maybe you’re blocking imgur?

    That is shaping up stellar!
    What finish do you intend to use?
    I use Valejo satin, you?

    Looking forward to the finished product a lot!!

    @simonsays Thanks man! I usually use liquitex varnish (satin for this one). I find it goes on a bit more transparent than vallejo, and it's cheaper to boot.

    yeah, i hear you!
    The vallejo also tends to be somewhat foamy when you brush, airbrush works quite well.
    Will try the Liquitex too:) 

    Do (or did) you also intend to change some things here and there on the Jinbao, e.g. some modifications to the mold of the Gestalt?

    But this thing will be a work of beauty, can't wait to see it finished!

    Need a lot of pics in various poses, close ups etc, to drool over lol!

    Keep up the good work!

    hah... I plan on taking tons of pics for sure. Some group shots as well as plenty of gestalt mode. I did do a few things, like I reversed the combiner port on swindle, puttied over greebles on most of the bots for faction symbols, and then I actually removed the raised area on the chestplate for a larger faction symbol. I was planning on modding brawl's shoulders to give it more articulation, but jinbao "improved" the friction joints to ratchet, so that mod wouldn't work any more. I considered heavily modifying blast off so it's combiner port was reversed, too, but i couldn't figure out a way to do it that wouldn't jack up one of the modes too much. I also modified his gestalt rifle so that he could actually hold it :)  The default stock had too much crap hanging off the back so it wouldn't fit properly.
