The first of the completed Thottlebots Project. Freeway is a the result of a black primer coat and several very thin coats of Model Masters Royal Blue Metallic. I've already ordered it, but I'm debating putting the Reprolabels kit [Prowl version] on once it arrives. It'll certainly break up the blue, but the color is so dark its almost black. Given his role as a spy/hacker, I'd think the low profile, darker colors would be to his advantage. I'm also debating whether I'll be putting the "Slicer" or "Bad Ass" license plate on him. And just a comparison shot of the vivid blue pearl and the royal blue metallic: If you can tell, yes the hood is a different color on purpose. When I first started shooting, I did the hood first. I really liked the color I got on it and was able to replicate it on all the panels up to the first leg I attempted. A strong just of wind gave me a nice, richer, royal blue stripe that I had to go back and cover. As a result, I had to go back and match everything else to the new color on the leg. I left the hood, though, writing it off as something of a carbon fiber deal. If I ever get around to making up backstories it'll all be explained... maybe.
