    Some of you may remember the Digibash by @l3x
    http://www.tfw2005.com/radicons-customs/digibashes-3/animated-beast-wars-20-164582/
    Being that Dinobot is my favorite character from Beast Wars,
    after seeing the Digi i knew I had to make this.

    I used Krylon Outdoor Gold & Satin brown, Fusion Blue, Testors Silver,
    Flat Tan & Gloss Black

    I'm out of Red paint, but i will be adding color to the eyes later on.
    Alt mode pics to come in the next few hours.

    There are some parts I'm not totally happy with. I will have a chance to fix that, as I am making a second Dinobot for Plowking.

    Enjoy guys.

    Wow! Good call! That's a great likeness! Great idea!

    The ridges you added over the eyes really nail the resemblance.

    Wow. Great job. I wasn't sure if that repaint would work out. Was it tough to paint, and is chipping/rubbing a problem?

    Thanks guys

    No, he's not really tough to paint, more of a pain to deal with the upper body.
    His shoulders have one way pins that are hiding a screw that hold the neck on.
    So working around the neck & upper arms proved to interesting. As far as rubbing & chipping,
    I have noticed that the Animated line has a few more spots that I did not think about compared to the Alt line,
    the biggest area I can see that will cause problems is where the front end of Alt mode fold down
    to form the upper legs. The grill clicks into a grove. Hopefully it's does not chip that bad that I cannot touch it up.

    :lol  I done played a trick on you :lol 

    Yep, First thing I did after seeing the gimpy hands was grab my hobby knife & fix that.

    Thank you , My Master. :lol

    RL, Eric is a plastic crack fan :poke 

    NP, this piece is great. Dinobot was the only character I even liked from BW, and you gave him his due. Everything you've done looks sharp. :thumb
