    And the Brawls keep on coming!
    This is the first Brawl custom I ever did, over five years ago, and what a pain it was! Using deluxe Brawl, I tried to get rid of as much of the Bayverse detailing as possible by covering them with tank panels, and remade the arms pretty much from scratch to try and look like those of G1 Brawl with the treads on the arms.
    His head is from Classics Starscream with some sanding away of the features.
    I also engineered the side pânels on his legs to swivel back behind them rather than to the side.

    It was one of my first serious customs, so he`s pretty fragile and loose; I even lost one of the hands somewhere along the way! Also, the paint job is a bit bland now that I look at him; too flat and boring.
    I often think of redoing this version from scratch, but...
    Oh well, live and learn!
    Maybe I`ll try again using the Leader class Brawl...oh, that`s an idea.....:D

    Nice piece for your first shot out the gate. Love how the pannels rotate behind the legs. Any detail shots to share?

    I like the look, but do you think some metallic drybrushing would be possible?
