    Masking, masking and more masking was the name of this game. The majority of the figure was Testor's One Coat Lacquer. The rest is hand painted with Model Master Acryl Gun Metal, or a military style green mixed by hand. Light dry brushing was used along all his edges, and in fact, the pics kind of hide the fact. I used flat gull gray to accentuate the wear lines from the show. They are there, but the pics are so blingy it's hard to see. Just like the model from the show, the shades of reflective green appear differently depending on lighting.

    This is an amazing mold, and I like the character from the show alot. Win win.

    Thanks for your time! Until all are one!

    That's REALLY cool, but you know what would be AWESOME? You should make a scratch full-size blaster that attaches to the tiny hole when his hand flips around that looks like the show. And a blaster for Wheeljack!
