    I hated the blandness of PRID Magnus.
    I'm sure there is something with the art that could define the colors for me better. But I decided to ignore whatever might be out there and just kind of work to make it how I liked it.

    I've still got a little touching up to do, but he's 99% done, and I just wanted to share!! Once the Red Taillights have a day or so to cure I'm going to do the line between the lights in black.

    If I can find something I really want to find a car carrier thing that I can modify and get to peg into his gun rails.. That's the next project.. Just for fun!

    I like the highlighting on the rear side panels. Looking good.

    That looks great!! Nicely done! What paints did you use?

    I've been trying to decide if I should do something like this or just wait for some Reprolabels. Great job again.

    Yeah I suspect that some reprolabels are going to be in the works for this guy.

    I used Tamiya Color paints for the silver (chrome silver) and Red (Just red), and then for the white detailing I used Formula P3's white, since it tends to cover a bit nicer than Tamiya color.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!
