    Well, here's my first repaint. It came out pretty well, though it's far from perfect; I look at as a learning experience *shrug*

    Sorry for crappy pics, only have a camera phone:

    The wind vane looks out of place, and where's the teal?

    Other than that, I like it. :D

    I was actually gonna add black to the windvane, but I just got to the point where I was bored of it and wanted to move onto finishing Thundercracker. I could always add it later. There's no clear coat on the windvane, as the spray paint I used for the silver doesn't need it- the stuff is amazing, I really need to find more of it.

    The lack of teal, on the other hand, was a decision I made from the get-go. I don't care for the teal, and I figured there were already so many of this repaint that it didn't hurt to have something a little different

    Make sure you give it enough time to dry, if you're using Kryon, it says to give it a week before paint becomes nonchipping. It's a pain to wait that long, but it's better than the alternative.

    That's pretty damned impressive to say the least. I like it 'cause I've seen alot of Nemesis Primes and all are impressive and yours is one of them. Keep up the good work.

    The paint applications are nice and clean, dude. Good work. Good job on the red cab windows, too.

    Looks very very clean. You've got my respect! The purely silver windvane does need a bit more, so don't forget :D

    it has a sort of monochrome quality which makes it different from the usual Nemesis recolors, and I dig it
