    UPDATE: 1/25 Botcon Streetstar Repaint (car mode added). Gave a shot at Customizer, FrogDNA's style of window painting so credit to him for the idea! Also, had to update the bot mode pics because of the windshield apps so stay tuned :)  this custom is heading over to Ebay soon...

    Thanks dude!

    I used mainly enamels (model master) and some tamiya acrylics for some minor detail apps (siren and yellow marker lights).

    Glossed with testors gloss. Thanks!

    Very nice clean paint applications. A couple of small suggestions, though, if I may.

    I think the windows, particularly the front and rear windscreens, could use some subtle shade and highlighting so it's not just the diagonal highlight stripes. I'd suggest a fairly wide horizontal bar in a slightly lighter shade of blue at the tops of the windows (avoiding the white highlights), and a narrower, darker bar at the bottom to hint at things like the dashboard inside.

    Also, I notice you've got the headlights painted over in black, and it looks kinda weird without them. It might be good to bring them back out, even if only in a plain silver paint app. :)

    Thanks bro!

    They are black on the original botcon figure so I painted these black as well.

    I really like the way this turned out.
    The cartoon treatment to the windows really makes this figure pop
    and your paint job looks slick man!

    Thanks x!

    Much appreciated :)  I was a bit nervous actually with the cartoon windshield but I like the look of it too and I'm looking forward to completing another with this style windshield!

    lol, not quite man, thanks!

    Looks really great, but I have to say FrogDNA has really defined his own style as a True Master, and imitation may be the best compliment, but with such a unique, defined style, imitations are obvious. Its like sampling music; why not write your own?

    Good work, regardless.
