    So...this started as a Terrorcon Bee, but I didn't stick to the plan, just kept painting and changing along the way. I was testing out a new paint and it wasn't as glossy as I thought it would be.

    The racing stripes didn't work out as well as I'd hoped, as they don't really work in bot mode.

    So! I guess this is a WIP, or in progress to going in the garbage and chalk it up to experience. If you have any ideas on how to finish this off, let me know.

    Your being too hard on your self.
    It looks great as is.
    If I might suggest, do a racing number on the doors in the same style as the stripes &
    add some blue details to the bot mode.
    Like the eyes, and on the lags.

    Same here, I think it's great just the way it sits, also Robo your ideas are great additions as well. Also pain the gears on the weapon so it looks like an Energon weapon Axe, something like the below:

    I actually really like that. I agree with what was said above. Maybe silver/gray up the windows just slightly to be a dark color that offsets the black of the body. Matte Black is hot.

    Agreed with all of the above. The blue stripes look awesome to me.

    Personally, I'd just add some basic details (color the lights, the mirrors, door handles), and see how that looks. Sometimes, just a hint of silver on the car will help a lot.

    As for robot mode, maybe add some red and silver in. Not sure what you want to do as far as how he is, but red or blue eyes, then add a bit of a highlight on exposed robot parts to help bring out the detail, and you're golden.

    Stop being so hard on yourself man. He looks great!

    Try continuing a racing stripe down each leg to the foot

    That's really sharp. It'd be a shame if you do actually throw it out.

    I agree, this looks great. I especially like the stripes, how did you get the colors to blend together so well? It's amazing all the great repaints people are doing for this mold.
