Looks really good. It'll definitely be awesome once you get those leds in there.

Night 2. I concentrated on the side mechanics and a bit of the exterior stuff on the body. First thing was to cut the mechanics piece apart so I could trim off the part that connects the main pipes from the grappling hook part. I then finished the hook part off by sanding etc. I removed some of the parting lines from the pipes and tried to cut the casting a bit to make the parts look separate. I ended up cutting off the base part of the big pipe and making new bases from styrene. I repainted a lot of it and then added some more detail using fine guitar string wire (high E). I added a few "bolts" that werent there and then painted on screws and bolts as well.
(here are the parts after they've been cut up and sanded down. You can see where the chrome is gone.)

Finished side mechanics. I added some color as appropriate and added the labels on the main metal box thing. The chain is brass.

The muffler looking part is actually tin foil on the matte side cut to size and perforated.

I also painted the silver piece on the body and painted a few of the screws on the speaker cover lightly. I dry brushed the speaker "wire" to look a bit silvery as well.

I dry brushed the air intake grills with a bit of silver too. Under the right light they look pretty metallic.

Just for kicks I reinstalled the interior and took a few pics.

I added some light chalk to the treads to bring them out a bit.

One last shot looking in:

Now maybe I'll tackle those LED's... maybe.

Thanks for the comments. I am definitely palnning on painting the guns black. I was watching the DVD in freeze frame tonight and that was definitley something I noticed. If you watch the axis scene where the guns are blazing you'll see the guns violently jerking back and forth fron the recoil. I never noticed that before... Let me know of any other things I can do - I may not have thought of a few things!

Its looking good Matt. I just purchased a 1/18 scale on ebay yesterday. I want to start modding it just as you did. What did you use for the cross pattern in the head rests?
