    Picked up a movie Air Raid and finally got around to painting him into a Swoop.

    It was a simple repaint done into his Classic colors. Tons and tons of details went into this guy to make all the detailing pop on this guy.

    I drilled a hole into the dish that a plug can be inserted into to hold it into the gun position.

    I have been PMed and asked many of times what paint colors I use on my figures. Some people think that its maybe 4 or 5 colors but in fact tons of colors goes into one of these pieces. I present to you the complete list of colors used on Swoop.

    Krylon: Camo Ultra Flat Black
    Testors: Gloss Black, Flat Black, Insignia Red
    Vallejo: Transparent Yellow, Transparent Blue, Matte Finish
    Citadel: Mechanicus Grey, Codex Grey, Mordian Blue, Necron Abyss, Altdorf Guard Blue, Averland Sunset, Dwarf Bronze, Mechrite Red, Mephiston Red, Blood Red, Chainmail Silver, Runefang Steel.

    Thanks for looking,
    Shinobi

    Very nice!

    I'm kind of shock this wasn't done in the toy line like that.
