    I got a Target BB two pack a wile back and decided to go nuts...

    Car mode:

    In addition to weathering I also painted the splashguard, the turn signals, and the rear view mirrors, I also painted the tires flat black to make them look more like rubber.

    Very awesome work, dude. I like weathering it makes it look real without making look phony. Nice!

    Sick. Do those missle pods come with the toy, or are they custom? I don't have the 76' (correct year?) version, so I have no idea.

    They come with the toy but are originally all black and have a firing projectile (that looks silly) in them.

    he's in a boxing stance.


    DC nice job man. Can't help but notice you painted his crotch-cap :lol . You found a pretty good color match for those guns, cool. Like the launchers a lot better with the paint on the end like that.
