    At first I thought it was crap, but now I feel motivated with all the nice comments, Thanks guys!

    I agree with Nemesis Predaking, the mold does suck, but hey I tried to fix him up as best as I could.

    Like the others have said, chris, the paint job makes it very car like/metallic, so it makes a so-so mold look fantastic! Keep it up :D

    Nice to to see quality painting that isn't just the run of the mill drybrush job. Very nice work.

    I was originally thinking about using the neck joint from Barricade (TF Robot Replicas), instead I went to my old engineering class and used the metal lathe to make his ball joint neck (out of scrap aluminum).

    I have more TF projects to do, I will just post it here and on my blogger whenever I finish one. Anyways my schedule is screwed up from work / school:banghead: , so expect to see another repaint from me in about two weeks.

    Thanks for the kudos! No Krylons here, just Testors Acrylic (Basic colors), same type of paint Jin Saotome uses.
