Model Makeover #1 - Vampire on "Pegasus"

Sometimes you find an old model lying around in the bottom of your box of shame, badly painted, partially painted, or in serious need of repair. It is quite interesting to repair and repaint it and see the transformation.

A definite improvement, I would say.

That’s impressive! Nice job
