    I've recently found a second Armada Highwire and I thought that it was a good opportunity to get back to customization. When I bought Armada Perceptor I was really upset with how stock Highwire looked. The black color scheme, red visor didn't feel right for this cute companion robot I knew from the cartoon. I've made pretty much a full repaint. My copy was missing the seat so I've made a mold and copied it using some epoxy putty. The biggest issue was getting the right color for him since he looks a bit blueish in the cartoon. And of course painting the two tiny dots that were his eyes was a real pain. I was holding my breath the entire time. Hope you guys like it [​IMG]

    Awesome! That saddle looks great so nice job on casting it and the pupils give him life, impressive clean line work on the Mini-Cons insignia too.
