    Admittedly, I figured it was a detail from the movie I may've not noticed.

    Wow...love this post. I'm planning to get the Hasbro version and do some custom work with decals and paints since this Weijiang toy is too big for my display.

    I will take your job as a baseline.... oh.. and thanks for that website with the decals for the Pave Low and other military hardware.

    You are welcome! Curious to see your work on him to!
    I hope you find the info worthy and if you have more questions, let me know!

    For now I will pretend that is the case, but I might just redo that decal in the future...

    Glad to see someone tackle the SS Blackout, or a KO of him. I've been working on mine for almost a year now and still haven't finished him because I can't find any reference pics of him in robot mode that are anything better than a humanoid shape with various shades of grey (The stock images). So now I'll have a custom whose ideas I can steal- I mean take inspiration from for mine

    So.. all I need is some of the decals but I am liking how he is turning out.
    I added the details in gold, silver, steel, bronze and aluminium and this is the result!
    What do you guys think?

    Looks pretty good... but I think you should dull the bronze a little bit

    Maybe copper would work better. Testors makes really good copper paint

    Nice,but a bit too clean for my taste. This really should be getting some worn and greased or oiled up attention that a chopper of its caliber deserves.

    He is still not finished, I need more decals before Inwould consider weathering.
    That said, I do prefer them clean to be honnest..
    Did that with all the bots (except beaterBee)
