    I started this a few days ago. I am still not done, just needs a little more before I start painting the finer details. This is my first battle damage Ive done so be honest with your opinions ^^.

    I used an exacto knife, dremel & a solder for the bullet holes.

    Are those decals on the windscreen or actual cracks? If it were the latter, I must congratulate you. Very realistic effects, these.

    Even though Barricade didn't take any bullets in the movie, the holes still look great!

    Yes they are actually cracks. I used my dremel and exacto knife to make the cracks as they would on real life.

    Thank you for your comments ^^

    This isnt an update but I was wondering if anyone could help me with what colors to use for Barricade. I cant find a good image of him full body showing his movie colors in bot mode. I will appreciate any help. Thanks ^^

    Thank you closetrat. Here is an update#1 to vehicle mode coloring. I will continue with this the rest of the week before I move to bot mode. Those bot mode pics will help me alot ^^.

    Wow! That windshield is the Ballz! This is a damn site better than that Sideways disappointment Hasbros trying to pass off on us. Great job!
