    Just a straightforward quick repaint here. The commissioner wanted a slightly more G1 look to replace the somewhat slapdash paint job on the factory figure.
    I painted the inside of the cockpit silver to bring out the blue of the glass. Painted the framework of the canopy grey to match the rest of the figure. Uniformed the legs instead of green grey AND black and did the same for the arms. Painted the back of the head to match the front and added darker green around the base. Painted all the ordnance silver and got rid of the blue and gold stripes on the wings. Nothing new or too exciting, just a repaint.

    I love it. Has a Live Action feel to it.. But that's not bad.

    Allen, this repaint is very nice (good work on you) but does help emphasize in my mind why this mold doesn't work for springer.. Maybe if it had a more movie style head or something.. hrm...

    Yeah, I don't get "Springer" from this mold at all either. But thanks!
