As per usual, larger photos and comments can be made / viewed over at the MAC Forums – HERE
Ok, well lots of progress was made last night. This kit is turning out a lot better than I had envisioned. When I started modding it, I really had no idea / direction so I figured it would be very close to a OOB build. But I have seen the light! and been injected with some inspiration.
Just a word of warning of sorts, if you read all the text from this post and decide you want to check out the larger pictures at the MAC forums, the text over there is just copied and pasted So ignore what I have to say, is what I am saying.
I have painted the, um long large pointy thing on his back. The original plan was to paint it white, but i’m all outta white. I had also planned to paint quite a few other parts white, but as I am outta white, thats not gonna happen.
I still need to paint in more details on this thing. So look out for more photos soon.
I have added more of that metal mesh looking stickers. They are actually chrome and are only red because of the red paint reflecting off them.
As you may be able to see the hip mounted weapons have been added, I was kinda hoping to turn them into thruster of some sort, maybe I still will.
On the left and right of the photo are those mega booster packs and instead of two of those upward facing beam weapons per booster I have replaced half of them with a set of twin launchers. Also loads of bolts have been added to the boosters.
Attached to his buttocks is a part I salvaged from my strike freedom (the backpack). I plan on using it to add those two large cylinder looking parts (fuels tanks of some sort). One tank will be on the back surface and the other one will be on the lower angled surface.
I will need to add some details to those fuel tanks. These were some of the parts that I wanted to paint white..
There are the arms with all the bolts added and my Red astray helping out with the photo shoot.
One of the major standouts of this kit is its size! it is a really big kit, look at the size of the arms compared to the astray. They are half as long as the Astray is tall.
‘Good boy’ says the Astray.

That is it for now, I will be working on it some more real soon!
