    So, I have some painting to do, touch up a few areas. I made sooo many mistakes with this!! Wrong paint (I bought the .97 cent stuff at Wal-Mart), and I couldn't get the Null Cannon and chasis apart, so I had to paint it whole. Sanding it down was oaky, but I also used the same cheap primer....you get the point.

    I'll post finished pics when I finish.

    However, it's my first repaint attempt, so not so bad. All the electronics and mini-con port/null cannon gimmicks work. I just wanted to have him in this mold. I do plan on doing a Dirge and Thrust, hopeully I can find a Skywarp to buy under $50.00. All feedback will be appreciated, just be kind....its my first time...LOL.

    Enjoy!

    It looks pretty well done, but the colors seem more red and yellow than orange.

    Yeah, try some white. I agree that it's not quite Sunstorm yet but you're on the right track, looking good.

    Okay, added some white striping, and made the cockpit white. I still have to sharpen up the lines, but I will wait until it dries. Thanks so much, fellow bot's.

    What about my next project?.

    How about Cybetron Prime as Optimal Optimus? Orange, gold purple amd gray?
