    This is simply something that I did to fill time. All I meant to do was the paint apps that should have been. Like the gaps in the black. But I wound up doing quite a bit more. QorC welcome!!!

    I cut the front fenders in half to wide the robot chest...
    Filled in all the missing black paint...
    Detailed the head, arms, torso, and tail lights...
    Used Bare Metal Foil for the head lights...
    Painted the missles and thighs chrome silver

    Very nice, good solid custom here. I love Bare Metal Foil, using it on my HA Jazz as well.

    Very nice job. I've repainted the black on mines but it doesn't look anywhere as good as yours. I'm trying to work out side rear view mirrors for this guy.

    Ah, I knew this toy would have looked better had they left the front end alone. Good stuff.

    I totally agree on both counts :) 

    My only suggestion now is to get the Reprolabels set, or at least an updated faction symbol. Orange Autobot symbols = the pits :) 

    Keep up the good work, bud :thumb

    I was unaware that Reprolabels made a set for CLASSICS Prowl.
