    Well after the dye job didn't work, I had to do another Soundwave. I unshelled him and used that for Chromedome from earlier this week. So here is todays half day project, Soundwave.

    Well it's not hard and one thing I am extremely good at is time management. While spraying coats on the car body, I worked on the arms. Krylon dries pretty quickly and putting it together is a snap since I already took a few apart.

    The biggest problem was the rear windows. I had to paint them over and was going to make them black but the paint was pulling the krylon up. So I took the paint off and decided to take the entire side off. I ended up liking it a lot and had to take the paint off the roof sides to match the idea. I think it came out really well.

    Half a day? Good grief man, that's beyond impressive. Awesome work but you gotta find some way to break up the blue.

    Break it up? Doesn't seem to be that bad I thought.

    Nice, man! I have the same bash planned. No luck on a wheeljack yet, might try the KO one.

    Love the pic of him and his minions. Sweet!

    I don't know, maybe something on the hood to break up the shoulders and the Head/Neck area in bot mode. Wouldn't take much, maybe the duel silver racing stripes down the center.

    It looks awesome, but there's something missing.

    Edit: Looking over the photos again, I think it's the silver down the side and how it just stops as it rolls from the A pillar into the fenders. There's no flow... its just kinda cuts off. That's fine in the back cause you have the contours of the rear window and the quarter panels; in the front however, it's too abrupt. Maybe if you brought the Silver back out along the fender in a modified boss scheme to include the hood but leave the sides of the car alone. Hmm I need to play around with this.

    I don't know if this helps or not... but that silver down the side still needs something to make it flow.

    I see what you mean. Maybe just down the sides of the hood topping the front quarter panels.

    Maybe... it's kinda odd, I just can't put my finger on what's missing.
