    Inspired by meister works guzzle from cw Brawl, this guy was made from the ko which was easier than most official figures to disassemble and a bargain from aliexpress. Plastic quality is also very good. Eventually I'll be purchasing the shapeways guzzle head by steamshield but this is him done for now.

    First time I've undercoated in white for yellow and it worked a treat, the yellow is a games workshop "layer" paint applied with brush so reasonably thin as to not clump.

    My only trick with white is multiple thin coats of spray, won't be transforming him due to how easy it chips though.

    Yeh I use GW paints as well, but I still thin them down some. Especially the whites, yellows, and oranges. If I could, I like testors acryl line, and tamiya, but out in the boonies, I get what I can get :)

    Also inspired by the original source. I'm getting around to getting a ko brawl and others for the last few Wreckers I need. Good job

    Too much risk of paint scuffing, specially on the yellow and white :D
