Browning took me forever to finish. It's not that he's particularly complex or anything; rather, it's because I couldn't decide what parts to make him out of! He started out as a straight repaint of Treadshot, just for fun, but I always put him off and put him off. Then one day I noticed Devastator's head, and it immediately reminded me of Browning!|
After a while, I decided that Treadshot's legs looked too much like a gun, if that makes sense. So I used legs from a Shockwave.
Still not satisfied, I noticed that I had an extra Rollout torso. So I filled in the ridges on what would have been his shovel (I guess, if he could transform) and sanded down the shoulders (which I wish I hadn't done in retrospect).
Well, at least Treadshot's arms made it to the final model!
These were the colors I used on the Toy Version of Browning:
The Browning toy had a mostly silvery-grey color scheme. However, on the cartoon, I guess they thought it would be cute to make Browning brown (if you're wondering, that's someone's ear in the background):
Unlike the Browning Toy custom, I left Rollout's shoulder pieces on this time. Interesting note: only two Transformers on the cartoon have ever been built to human scale (i.e., the toy would be the same size as a real Transformer): Browning and Armada Laserbeak. From what I understand, though, there are life-size Transformers in the live-action movie.
Anyway, here are the colors I used for the Cartoon Version of Browning:
