    Hello! Latest commission for a client in Australia. Big fan of Galvatron and wanted him to look like in the movies than how I made him last time. Built him and them painted him using Car Grade paints as well as my own mix for the Purple(Mixed in pearl pigments to give him a slight sheen, looks awesome in person). Sealed him so he is fade and chip proof and he is all set to destroy some Autobots. Thanks for looking and commenting.

    These kits are on sale at bbst.com if anyone else is interested in one from me, got plenty of practice.:thumb

    Thanks Ram! Me too, but what a pain they are, had to reduce it so much to get it through the airbrush. Worth it though.

    Well you did an awesome job on Mr. Insanity known as Galvatron. Everything just says, "I'm a crazy ass 'con who'll destroy everything!" on this custom, so that's it.

    Heh. That's one of the advantages of not using one. :D 

    I swear by my Inscribe Pearly Glaze, which is pretty much a gloss glaze with mica particles suspended in it. I use it a lot. As I said to Superquad earlier, I was gutted when I found out the company who made them actually went into liquidation a few years ago.

    I've been using the same bottle for probably five years, and it's still as awesome as the day I got it. :D

    That does sound awesome, too bad about the liquidation. I am using Pearl Ex pigments and so far they have been great(sans the airbrush problem but I now know how to avoid that). I even used it dry(comes in powder form) on a figure and then airbrushed a sealer on and it looked great, will have to do some more experiments though.

    Ya know, its ok to link to additional images found on your personal website, or on photobucket, wherever... but not when you're only going to attach one single image in your thread. That not only defeats the whole purpose of having attachments, but its circumventing our rules man.

    Danku very much.

    I make one large image for my galleries and one image that I re size for thumbnail purposes. It sucks that we have a size limit for pictures and that images cannot be displayed directly on this site but will on any other forum I post at(which is somewhere around twelve of them). I would have loved to host the linked image on the radicons database if I could have. I would also like to get a copy of the rules, mine got lost in the mail.:D 

    Thanks very much, Hasbro would do good to look at the Radicons section every once in a while.

    the fact that you can not post a new thread without attaching images to it is a clear enough copy of the rules. and why do you want all your images spliced together into just one?? people want to get a good large clear look at specific images, not a collage. That hurts your presentation.

    I love this custom. awesome work. detailing is perfect.
    I agree with Redline though, I HATE clicking links to see pictures, especially the way I have my browser set up to open a new window for pics. I've seen Jin do collages like this, but I think he did it cause they were used in ebay auctions, and it cuts down price a bit. We want large pics of all your stuff tonyz.
