Impressive, I like that you went your own way with the Nightbeat character.

Are you using the ebay KO's for the Viper frames?

nice job, except for the metalic gold and blueish/silver paint. you didnt use the citedel paints for those did you? they look like heavy brush marks.

its kindof a tricky thing to do, but i found the best way to do that kinda paint, is to put a layer on, and light sand it after its drythen another layer, and light sand, hen clear coat. may need to do a couple more layers, depending on how much brush work still shows. comes out smooth and glossy in the end

but other then that, very nice. ide buy these off ebay if they were posted :grin:

They most definately are the KO vipers, and the heads are the viper with the antennea removed & hound, both with faceplates molded from blu-tac, hardened with nail polish & painted.
The brush strokes are a bit rough Ill admit, but had no idea how to fix it. will take the advice on board for next time.
AK - it actually was your Nightbeat that gave me the idea to toy with this one, but with the glaring yellow on BT hotrods hands, I was not too keen. may add gold paint instead yet, but still on the drawing board.

I've seen it in person. AK is a frickin' God. Damn him. I have more or less decided to copy his Nightbeat conversion. Got the Lambor head mould ready to go too.
