Hi everybody. I'll admit these aren't all too exciting. Everybody's done Astrotrain already, but I haven't seen too many revised Hot Rods out there. Astrotrain still needs some work - transformation into bullet train mode really trashed the paint more than I thought it would. And I'm going to get rid of the Decepticon logos on his forearms - they're upside down in train mode and that's really starting to bug me. I painted all the windows gold to match the gold windows on the shuttle cockpit. They're all yellow in the cartoon, so I figured it was a nice upgrade. I also painted all the wheels black. Like I said, he's not quite done yet, but he's getting there. Hot Rod got some minor touch ups and a repainted chest and head. Plus the toy needed more orange! My orange paint doesn't quite match the orange plastic, but it's close enough for now. I also painted his spoiler gold to match the flames on the hood/chest. Lastly, I don't care much for the whole light-piping gimmick, so I painted his eyes blue.
