    Well I finally did it! I attempted to repaint a extra TF I had. I used Armada Wheeljack and turned him into Armada Deadend! Tell me what you guys think! I used some model paint, not testros paint... Some other one I cant remember the name right now. I really didn't care for the paint. Any suggestions of a better paint please let me know! :thumbs2:  Anyways here is the pictures from before and after! Please constructive criticism!

    The theme and idea are great...

    My advice to you is this: If you're going to do any gloss paint work, never use a brush. Ever.

    I love that mold, and your custom rocks! The interpretation is very cool and original.

    I didn't read the description at first, so I was like, "This is just a non repainted Wheeljack..."

    My stupidity aside, this is quite good for a first time.

    Yeah, learned that the hard way lol

    Thanks guys for the awesome comments. It'll probably be a while before I tackle another custom. For now I'm just going to update a lot of the dull generic gray/silver that seems to be showing up more frequently on Transformers mainly the DotM releases.
