    Spray paint season is already finished up here... so i can't finish vector prime unless the weather plays in my favor, but i don't think it will...until late april...anyway, i used your tutorials (and the help of Grayfox) to dye Armada Megatron( my first dying work ever).

    it's not finished yet and i'll get a backstory explaining why he's like that.

    anyway, cc are welcomed as always!!

    PS: there'll be more red, whatever ones like it or not:thumb 
    and i did a new altmode to it (cannon-like mode). i wanted him to be more menacing.

    Edit:***5 pics added*** legs mod finished (can't do any better).Some red apps added. Flagpoles painted (rusty!).

    More paint apps to come. almost finished.

    ***NO PLACE TO ADD SHOULDER ARTICULATIONS*** sorry SQ7:( 

    and dont't forget, cc are always welcomed!!

    thought it would be harder than this. i had some warping issues with it's shoulders but nothing worth mentionning (they're only a lil looser than they first were).

    do it!!!the mold is great, but the paint job hasbro gave him just sucks!!

    Nice banner too.
    thanks!


    PS:looking at the new alt mode make me regret i didn't used that mold to make an insecticon...oh well...ALL HAIL MEGATRON!

    I really like your rusting, it looks like actual rust.

    I've done a galaxy force Nemesis with some rusting, and it's definitely a bit of a learning curve getting the textures and colors right, so congrats on a fine job. Can't wait to see more.

    Wow, this turned out really well! I really enjoy all of the treatments with the dye and paint, as well as the banner. I'd suggest adding some weathering to the flagpoles. Also, I'm not sure how far down the rabbit hole you want to go, but this is an awesome mold if he had some ARTICULATION! I'd LOVE to see someone (I'm looking at you, agent!) give Armada Megs some mad articulation. If you could give Megs some poseability, this would just skyrocket this custom to further awesomeness.

    Regadless, you've done a great job :thumb

    Awesome work man! The dye job and paintwork really make this figure look evil. I love the banner too! What kind of material did you use for it?

    Also, I've told you before but I'll say it again, that new alt mode is KILLER :D

    that rust was actually easy as hell. ''wiped'' orange drybrush over silver drybrush.

    look at your PM:wink: 

    that flag was made from a sigma 6 duke paratrooper's parachute.there's still enough to make another one for another project I've already showed you.

    and thanks a lot for all of your comment and suggestions!

    i don't know yet when I'll be able to finish it, but I'll try to do it by the end of this month.
