    updated: sergeant kup prime

    Final update with alt mode too. I'm really happy with the hood/bonnet mod, it really tidied up the robot mode loads in my mind - always hated that big wing sticking out behind his head :) 

    Hope you like it....

    I did a custom of my own using that mold. I turned him into Swindle but the paint job was rubbish so I will never upload pictures of him...

    HOWEVER, this custom is awesome. Simply awesome.

    Thank you Kowbot, I really appreciate the kind comments. Good to know I'm on the right track with this.

    The paints are all Tamiya acrylics, mostly flat black, gun metal, flat blue, sky blue and a touch of white and yellow. The main body was built up with various layers of blues, starting with a flat blue with a dash of black, then a bit less black, then none, then a final of sky blue with black, which I think was 10 blobs of blue to 1 blob of black :)

    Mate, there is no such thing as a rubbish radicon, there are no right or wrongs. You should post some pics of your swindle, I know I'd love to see your take on it :)

    This looks great!

    I wasn't fond of the Sergeant Kup figure, since it was just a green Ironhide, but this paintjob really makes it work.

    Very nice. :)
