    Progress: 100%

    Hello. I am one of the people who kitbashed G1 Red Alert into his cartoon colors. All I did was unscrew Red Alert's head, used Testors Guards Red acrylic paint, painted his helmet, and used Bright Blue paint for his eyes. After the paint dries, I put his head back on, unscrewed his codpiece (that black thing), unscrewed his front legs, and painted his thighs white using Testors Gloss White acrylic paint while leaving his abdomen red. After the paint dries, I put his codpiece and his front legs back in.

    All that's left is painting his launcher white.

    I got his new stickers from ReproLabels.

    EDIT: I painted his launcher by using Testors Gloss White acrylic paint. Sadly, I have to leave the clip of his launcher unpainted, so that it can clip on better.

    @Superquad7 Thank you for appreciating my work. And as for photos, my digital camera is a little old (I got it back in Christmas 2003).

    You can do a lot with a little, though. Make sure you have a neutral background for starters. Then, get to know your camera. Know what it can/can't do, and just work with it. Push it to where it can't go any further for you. Lastly, pick up a few skills with photo editing software. All that you need is covered in the Tutorials section.

    Back in the day, I had a 1 mp camera that I pushed to no end. I made it do its job :) 

    Keep at it, and I hope we see more soon!
