I absolutely loved season 3's "Race With The Demon", I've always had a thing for the whole Rat Fink look. So naturally I was pretty excited to see Speed Demon Donnie getting a T-Machine. Sculpt's alright, could be better, but good for the money. The "paint job", however... leaves much to be desired. Solid brown, outside of the head! Super ridiculous, yo. After looking for one about 2 months now, I stuck gold this evening, & immediately took to touching it up! Weathered & panel-lined the car, too.

I haven't fully inserted Donnie's peg into the car yet, as I'd like to seal the paint first. That's why he may seem a bit tall or too high up at present.

That's an amazing paint job. Easily one of my favorite episodes of the show as well. I'm crazy about the turtles and both of my sons are car crazy so it's an episode we all can enjoy.

Typical of Playmates to leave parts unpainted, great improvement to this figure, the weathering looks good too!

This is really great, but because the car looks nice and actually quite realistic, Donnie could use some shading.

& now I've sculpted a base for it! Unless I decide to give Donnie a black wash (maybe, but doubtful), I guess it's done.

I think a light black wash would help Donnie, yet this piece is so great! :tsmile:
