    I knew I wanted to redo hasbro crosshairs as soon as I got him. What started with his 3d glasses turned into a complete facelift. I used all tamiya paints. Park green is a perfect match to the green hasbro used. He's full of detail hidden in all the black.

    Thanks everyone. He was fun to do and looks worlds better. Alt mode is no different from stock. I'm just going to do the lights tailpipes and corvette emblem.

    I've started doing this to mine. It's really surprising just how much of a difference the extra green makes.

    The green adds a world of difference on this guy. Before I painted him he was so so. Once I finished him he became one of the best of all of wave 1. My opinion of course. Love to see yours when it's done.

    Good job :thumb  . What a world of difference it made just by adding on a little more paint (Hasbro/TakaraTomy please take note). I just love it when someone is able to take an existing figure and made it to look better than the original stock photos. It really shows our love and appreciation for the Transformers line. Might I suggest adding a layer of translucent black at the inner parts of his coat (the hood & side skirts) ? I bet it will make him look even better + add some cool tinted windows in the vehicle mode. :wink:

    Thanks for the compliment. If I do paint inside his coat it will be a gold/rust color like his cgi, but that's up in the air still.

    Really great work here. Now Crosshairs looks like he stepped off the screen and less like a member of the Green Lantern Corps. Not that I have any problem with the Green lantern Corps.
