    Let me start off by saying that this figure is absoluty LOADED with details. Not just the panels and what some call "greebles", but more than that. It has details within details, and detailing even where it technically isn't necessary, like inside pieces and connection points.

    I kept looking at the stock figure and thinking that the tracks kind of looked bland, even though there was obviously a lot going on. So, I decided to do a little panel lining and highlighting.

    I used an ink specifically for creating weathering and grime that flows through panels on it's own to create a more natural look. I also refuse to use black for paneling because I just don't think it looks good, so I'm using a warm, dark brown for Omega.

    Anyway, after getting the tracks done, naturally the rest of the figure looked stark by comparison, so I said "to heck with it" and went to town. Some regret, due to just how much work is involved, but it's worth it.
    Been working on this for about four days and still don't have half the body done, just the tracks, rocket and the tank.

    After I finish the washes, I'll go back and add actual detailing, like colored panels and other small stuff. I don't want to distract from the overall figure, so the detailing will be small and unobtrusive.

    Anyway, here are a few pics of where I'm at:

    I'm planning on going back over a few areas and softening up some of the washes and maybe darkening a few other points. I just can't stand heavy panel lining, so I need to concentrate with this one.

    Looks really great. Nice job.
    I think your brown wash choice is good fit.

    Count me as a fan of the brown instead of black paneling too. I like the weathering and the subtle coloring job. You bring out depth more naturally so it all works together better.

    This is about as tasteful as weathering can get. I love it.

    Did I see somewhere in one of yours posts that you painted the inside of the rocket console orange? It looked great.

    Any more photos of that?

    I love the orange.
    I just bought the Toyhax set for the stickers for in there, but I might still give a coat of orange first.

    What brand paint, and color name?

    Krylon Fusion. Can't remember the name, but they only have a couple of shades of orange and this one is the richest.

    Yeah, additional tracks would be nice. As long as they aren't like some of the other stuff they've made that is obviously 3D printed and doesn't take to paint whatsoever* I'd order some as well.

    Perhaps, but I'd rather something over nothing in this case.
    There are just waaaaay too many cool base mode configurations that can be made, we just need more tracks.
