    Surprised I couldn't find anyone having done this yet. So i gave it a shot taking a long time with mediocre results but you get the idea.
    Someone else would have had a smoother finish.
    (I have now invested in an airbrush)

    My first fully painted by hand figure.
    Repaired his helmet with putty, knocked pin out to remove goofy eyes, cliped solid handle bars.

    Had the same thought to do this, but never did. Your version looks awesome!

    That is so F'n awesome! I have to say, I think the eyes are the best part, they make me laugh :D . I hope you don't mind, but I have to do this too. (adding to my ever growing customs list)

    Yeh The goofy giant eyes weren't gonna cut it ofcourse. The pupils I have here are actually black sharpie on Cello tape cut into tiny squares, because I can't cut tiny circles and this gives a subtle Futurama Bender vibe. I also doubted my skill in painting eyes looking straight so went with a less permanent solution which also can work well if you want to call that articulation. Then I realised that in more common scenes his eyes are red?

    Please do a better job!
