    Hey

    Been doing a few paint jobs recently. Here is Alt Arcee. I have only painted the car mode at the moment and not sure if it needs more white somewhere, possibly around the doors/rear wheel. She will sport a Sculpt_bot Arcee head and alot of white on the body - when I get around to it

    Anyway, and comments/critisisms/suggestions?

    Regards

    JL

    NEW PICS: almost done, just needs eyes painted and faction symbol

    Purple suits this car far more than pink, and a purple Arcee is far more original than a pink one. You don't often see purple Autobots either. But I like it, the head will make it obvious who it's supposed to be.

    Awesome! I like the Honda S2000 as a fembot. Plowking did a Black Arachnia a while ago from the same mold and it rocked, as it has smooth lines and curves. Looking forward to the finished product.

    Her design kinda came about by accident. I was looking for paints for my Turbomaster projects and thought the purple was a cool colour. Originally I was gonna paint her white with pink highlights, but this eemed a bit different to convention so I went with it. Besides, there are already alot of white alts. As a bonus, the crossbow from an Arcee motorbike fits it perfectly - plugs into the socket and all. Im thinking of putting a reprolabels fembot sticker on the bonnet also in purple but not sure yet - what do u guys think?

    Regards

    PS - this is the bot mode at the moment - very WIP

    Nice to see I'm not the only one who thought that mold would make a good fembot!
