    So, I take it you're unfamiliar with the Universe 2.0 Powerglide mold at all from your post? I mean, is this really all you have to add to comment towards another artist's work?

    Like Superquad7 mentioned below, it's the Powerglide mold, I had to keep the LEDs for my customer otherwise I would've painted those lens covers up like his turbines.

    It's no problem Superquad, I can take criticism well my man.

    nice work SON, looks nice and clean. I suspect you used the beige/white one as a base? Maybe could use some blue/silver in the legs and all around, give a more "finished" look.

    Thanks man! Yes, I did use the beige/white one as the base. The prime coat was a gray tone and then I mixed mainly white with a small amount of gray to get his main color. I like your idea definitley about adding more details. I can see that working really nice!

    Thank you good sir!

    No prob man, your question did have me wondering though for a sec... I did email my customer and asked him to confirm keeping the lens covers unpainted because of what you mentioned (no names of course) - still waiting for a reply.

    Very nice. Can I ask what kind of white paint you used?

    Excellent! I agree with F/R about a bit of detail to break up the grey. Not much mind you, cuz it's pretty damn sweet already. You gotta love our patient customers huh? Great job!

    Yes, we do! I'm thinking about where I'd put the subtle details still. Decisions decisions. Thanks man!

    Very much appreciation for commenting Wolverenz!!

    SON (I feel a little odd calling you that :lol ), I think you have shown that you do take criticism well (as evidenced in this thread). This community could learn a lesson or two from that.

    The sarcasm isn't as much problematic as your post basically has no content whatsoever adding to a critique discussion, especially being one of the first responders to a post. I joke around all the time in here and the rest of the board, but I also want to make sure that I post other things to continue the discussion along. :wink:

    This is based off of a gobot, correct...actually less paint apps are kinda fitting. I like it- although I'd like to see it in it's darker colors.

    Hey man, thanks. I didn't realize he had darker colors. I used the botcon exclusive for this one per the customer's request. It was my first time hearing of Badboy.

    I try to do what I can, despite whatever obstacles may come up. I'll always put that back on you guys here in the Creative section and Radicons, though. The group of us really determines where things go. If you want positive and constructive feedback, take things in stride and post as much as you can in others' threads. If one wants friends, be a friend. If one wants help, give it. I think you can see the trend here :) 

    Keep up the good work, man :thumb

    Good work. Although a little bit of weathering on the gray would've been nice.
