    First time posting in this portion of the forums. I have the Legends versions of two of three of the Decepticon Targetmasters, and I wanted to get this little guy to better match his friends/look closer to the Legends version in the second picture (taken from Siebertron.com). Anyway, something I had been working on ages ago, put off to the side, and then thought to myself maybe I should finish that.

    I haven't finshed yet.

    Just posting a work in progress pic. Needs a few more passes, and the actual gun part is still a ways away from being finished. My eyes could also use one of those 'helping hands' things from Citiadel paints, as I can't quite seem to squint hard enough to get the red on the visor :p :D  (and that blemish on the right shoulder has been wiped off since taking this picture).

    Anyway, thanks for looking.

    Looks good but did you make new mods after the first pic? What’s with the cuts on each side of the chest or is the chest reversed (front/back) in the second pic?

    The second pic isn't his work, it's a picture of the Takara Legends Blowpipe next to Siege Blowpipe. They are different molds. He's painting the Siege Blowpipe to look like the Legends Blowpipe because he has the two other Decepticon Target Masters from the Takara Legends line and wants them to go together. He explains this in his post.
