    Hey guys,

    Fellow TFW member Rattrap commissioned me to paint up his DOTM Leader Megatron build, which I must says is friggen awesome! He did a great job building it and the articulation he added throughout it is very nice. As a fellow customizer I am quite impressed with it in hand.

    Well, I primed it up with flat black, then added variable shades of brown ranging from dark brown to a sand (very light tan). He's got lots of wear and tear, which I added with my dremel and other hand tools, and then gave hims some washes.

    UPDATE: Added more highlighting and several depth-enhancing washes so far. Also painted the rims and all the metal tone parts (inner arms, head, chest pieces, etc.). Just got to add his rust effects and do some minor fine tuning and that'll be it. He does have a real cloth and hood that Rattrap made, which I'll picture later once completed - See the Thread Pic as well :) 

    PICS have been given a very mild poster edge filter as to not spoil the finished piece...coming very, very soon!

    Very very cool, the build is especially impressive, I'm not sure if it was intended but the paint work and buils is in such harmony that if you look at the torso area carefully it seems like a giant menacing face staring at you, Just brilliant! :)

    i love the paintjob and the overall built, but the wheels on the legs/feet are a bit tiny?

    UPDATE POSTED!

    Thanks, Rattrap's going for a 'desert hermit' look so more tans and dust colors than flat military green in this one. Since the update, in hand it looks really nice - I almost don't want to let it go - j/k ;) 

    Thanks Joe!

    Noticed it now that you mentioned it, thanks man!

    Thanks gentlemen!

    It's really not too noticeable in person, I think the overall finished piece will really take away from noticing the smaller wheels ;)
