Hey everyone, this is my first custom tank, it's not GI-Joe, but it's still 3 3/4s scale, it's from "Power Team Elite" and it's the "World Peacekeepers Combat Tank" originally, now I've customized it for my Cobra Forces. It's almost the same color as the Cobra Maggot, I mixed the paint myself, so there is no color quite like it. This is my very first custom paint job on anything plastic. I think it turned out okay in the end though. What are your thoughts?? I'm thinking about painting camofluage on it next week. I'm good on it for now. I spent about 3 hours on it.

Wow man, that came out BAD @SS!

Dude, check out G.I.Joe Heaven (http://www.gijoeheaven.com), they have a TON of repro decals that you can spice that tank up with!

Great Job, man...that paint job looks FLAWLESS!

Hey thanks everyone for the nice comments on my first custom. I am almost finished painting the crew of three.. the original tank came with 3 troopers (non joe, but 3 3/4 scale).. and I have already painted 2 of them viper blue, but lighter (i mixed more colors to get the tone of blue I wanted for there uniform) I have decided to keep the tank the way it is, but I will put "red" cobra insignias on it's sides, and front by the turret. Thanks everyone, more pics will be added shortly this week. :)
