    A collab with Chocboa. I did the designs, he sculpted it.
    This is just a print and paint test. I'm just awaiting for my new prints and give em better cleaner paint. The face here is handbrushed, I'll spray paint it next time.
    Brawn head available here.
    Studio Series Brawn G1 Head and Neck Plate

    Resin print recommended.
    Use ABS- like Resin for durability.
    Recommended paint for the helmet is Tamiya Metallic light gray, Gloss aluminum or Mica Silver for the face.

    Think you could modify the neck armature to rotate the head panel upside down too?
    You know, for vehicle mode.

    What do you mean? It works like the original head panel.

    Thought the original head was too detailed. This, is perfect. Great job!

    I think he means have the neck plate rotate upside-down so the bottom of it is visible in vehicle mode, thus hiding the head better. It's a good idea and it might work. I'll have to see if it's possible.

    Thank you! I had fun modeling this head and it took a lot of iterating on my part to get the shape just right for the helmet. neurowing had some great reference art and input to get everything just right.

    This is incredible. I love SS Brawn but like you said the face is ever so slightly overdesigned and complex
