Darkwing by Anthony Appleton

Here's the low-down on Anthony Appletonís Darkwing custom in his own words:

After making Dreadwind, I had to make Darkwing — question was, how? I was flicking through my old comics for inspiration, and noticed Devastator's head looked similar to Darkwing's. Then, I noticed that Devastatorís torso with the chest plate was also similar to Darkwing, and when I painted it all blue, it did look an exact match.

Next, I had to figure out arms and legs. I eventually plumped for Rad's arms and Sprocket's legs. This left me with one problem — the back kibble. After much deliberation, I figured that the base of Action Master Starscreamís jet, though a bit top heavy, was ideal, and it turned out that way.
