    This was basically something that I worked on every now and then when I was bored. It started off as practice with dry-brushing, then I added some paint to the gun, and just this week I decided to finish it with some battle damage.

    The feeling that I was going for here is that he drove through something that was burning as he was running from some unknown enemy. I painted his hood and roof with black, silver, and some gray streaked to hopefully give some idea that this is what happened. I also gave him some cracks in the windshield, some bullet holes down the side, and scarred up his face just a little.

    Materials used:
    Testors Model Masters Acrylic Black
    Testors Model Masters Acrylic Gray
    Testors Enamel Silver
    RoseArt Metallics Marker Blue
    Future Finish Floor Wax

    Man, what did Bumblebee ever do to you to deserve such treatment?

    (Kidding.) I really like the work you did on the grill/hood. Very nice.

    Love the realistic color on the drybrush, but I'd make sure to hit those bright yellow seams on him too.

    You know I didn't even notice the seams! It's so obvious too! I'll definitely be fixing those seams soon! Thanks for the feedback guys!
