Excellent work! Looks just like mine, except I took off the shoulder cap rather then deal with the possibility of paint flaking off. Good clean paint apps.
Nice work, on Megs. Is it difficult to take him apart to paint or are the screws on it pretty easy to remove and take apart?
For the most part, he's simple to disassemble. The shoulder/upper arm pieces are pretty much impossible to seperate, but it's not necessary. The front foot piece (the part that is silver on mine) is also a bitch to remove, so I just masked around it.
The hardest point is avoiding paint rub. Typically I like to use Krylon Fusion, but for this project the colors I needed weren't available in that paint line. I used Tamiya USAF Light Gray* and a plastic primer for the majority of it, and a gloss coat. I haven't taken pics of the gun yet because I'm scared to see what kind of paint-rub I'll end up with
*got the paint color from forum member Weltall's Classic Megs thread.
indeed, subtle too. I like.
Very nicely done! Much better that Hasbro's colors.
The only thing that really stood out to me was the orange joints in his hips. If you can paint them red or white, they'll blend right in with the rest of the paint job. Other than that, excellent work!
LOVE IT. I'm so going to have to do that to my megs (right clicked and saved)
The only problem with painting them is that if you move his legs up, the ratchet joint will scrap the paint right off. I'd like to dye them black or red, which I'll probably do next time I have something else I need to also dye one of those colors.
Thanks If you want I could point out the particularly annoying rub spots to be aware of.
I think this is really well done. I though I would miss the red on the legs, but I think it makes the alt mode better not to have it.
Looks awesome. Some really nice work there.
Very nice paint job.
great job! now this is how a classics megatron should look!
hah he looks like he just came out of the box, or should have....
That paint job looks so beautiful.
