    I love how the flat colours just work for characterising Astrotrain :lol 
    What paints are you using for this?

    Love the use of the mold, got some obvious paint chipping going on with his ankle joints though

    Unfortunately they're cast in that "unpaintable" plastic

    this^ you touch the paint on the red parts, it falls off, not so with the vinyl that'll be added to cover any unpaintable plastic once and for all, i have some to match, just haven't applied it yet

    i'm using model master acrylics (first time using it too, very happy with the results though)

    Can that stuff be RIT dyed? I'm more curious than anything, haven't had a run I'm with the stuff yet. Best of luck with the project though.

    it's like a "waxy" plastic, i dunno if it can be dyed or not, might be worth a try,
