Fresh from last weeks LPL here's the start of my X-wing Scum and Villainy repaints, if you're a fan of 80's cartoons you might recognize some of the paintschemes, and otherwise the title of the thread might give you a hint  ;)




And some more detailed individual shots:

Handsome work, but a bit confused by the Amanita R2 unit...  >:D

Yeah, I wasn't making the connections, but didn't stop from being damn handsome!

I will say, while I didn't see the origin, I think Venom captured my fancy the most.

Did you see the images on TMP of the "SW armada ships with VSD modification" topic? Fellow going by Atropos907 put up images I was hoping someone would bust as mere photoshop.

Truth be told, the PJ impressed me so I'd give props if it WAS just photoshop!

Very clever - I especially like the resemblances between the characters and your models, as well as the great paint work.

yeah thanks, I guess it's not THAT obvious unless you're a die hard G1 transformers fan  :D

For me it was the obvious choice though, I got those headhunters first and needed a paintscheme and since I'm a big fan of the old cartoon the Seekers were the obvious choice, after that I just started looking at decepticons that fit

I wish, but they're all recent reissues not originals, although they are all near mint with the accessories still on the sprues and I usually keep them in their boxes

The key is darkness and a pure nitrogen gas atmosphere.

Amazing flyers, nice to see the other two Decepticon jets get some love.  Starscream with his sneaky ways somehow became an A lister on his own.
