    I'd been meaning to paint up my Windblade for ages, going for a more comic accurate paintjob; then took about a month to take initial pictures, and another before I transformed her to finish the photoshoot.

    All the color changed parts were primed and painted by hand (vallejo primer thinned with alcohol and Tamiya paints), finished with Pledge for a glossy finish.

    Thanks! It's technically from Blitzwing, but since they're the same all around, it works !

    It kinda felt like they got in the way. I could always pop them back on later, but I like her without em for now :)

    Most definitely before :D  Nevermind that she hangs out in my display case with Arcee, Chromia, and PRiD OP, away from the combiners...it just worked out that way, I swear!

    Lol, Strongarm is going to join them when I finally get around to painting her, and there's also an SD Winning and SD Star Winning gundams hanging out at the party.

    Happy Windblade is best Windblade :D
