    So, I picked up an Alternator Prime the other day, and low and behold when I got it home? His right head fin fell off. I literally took it out of the box, flipped it over, and the fin just falls on the floor.
    After my initial spree of cursing and screaming, I fixed the thing with some epoxy.... since I had bought the thing to repaint anyways, it worked to my advantage as I now had an excuse to paint the head to cover the epoxy.

    Here's the end result!
    While I had my paints out, I decided to take care of a project I'd been putting off for...well.. forever. BT* Ai-Chan into Carrobots/RiD (T)Ai-Chan.

    Now I just need a sticker for a new license plate on Ginrai. :) 

    Special thanks to Clay, since he took the pictures for me... 'cause my photo skills SUCK.

    Cool idea, you might want to consider another coat of silver paint to cover the brush marks, otherwise very cool. :D

    I agree, a second coat will do wonders.

    T-Ai-Chan is really well done. Ginrai on the other hand is kinda sloppy, at least in vehicle mode. Robot mode is pretty good

    T-Ai ROCKS man! Nice work!

    The others have given you some good advice as well. Sometimes it's nice to revisit a previous piece anyways. It's kinda like revisiting an old friend to help out more :)

    some masking tape would help with the edges. my only beef about the design is the yellow in the bumper.
