    Hello one and all. Thanks for stopping by!

    Well, I just finished my new project, which is my first attempt at chrome. I started with Classics Megatron, took him completely apart and got to work. The flail was made from a Spiderman Sandman attachment and a large paperclip, and plugs into the hole I drilled. I tried out some flash shots to try and convey the chrominess. Red leg/arm detail was painted with metallic reds. The jewels in his hips are to simulate the G1 look, and came from the craft dept.

    Thanks, and I hope you enjoy!

    He looks awesome! I know I'm going to do something similar to mine, but not sure about the chrome. Did you use Alclad? How difficult was he to chrome?

    I love the choice of colours, especially that metallic red. My only criticism would be the white paint splatter on the scope, and the fingerprints on the chrome (you can see them in the gun mode pic with flash on). ;-)

    All in all very well done! This is what the Hasbro version should have looked like.

    Thanks! Doh!!! I can't believe I used a pic where I hadn't touched up the gun scope...duhr. Here's a better pic. Fingerprints? I don't know....I was pretty careful in the process...It's not alclad, it's Dupli-color chrome spray over black primer. Seemed to work out fine.

    Very nice. I like how the red looks on the legs.
