    Pics of Scrapper - I took note of some of what you guys who have been following my Dev. custom said and added another shade of purple/pink to not only better highlight the energon effects, but also to better distinguish the energon colors from Dev's secondary color. I will still be adding more of this new shade once Devastator is fully assembled.

    I will be adding the G1 flat top to Scrapper, just haven't got around to painting it yet and attaching it. I made it removable for preference reasons.

    As advised by fellow Customizers, I will be adding some LEDs as well :D  thanks to my old man who will assist me in doing so. Those won't be revealed until the final presentation though...

    Lookin good Zac, did you end up going with Sublime Green?

    One thing, the Autobot symbol is still showing, you might want to putty that guy up and do a little touch up, otherwise looks nice.

    Hey JBarb! I did go with sublime green from Model master and 'light green' as well from Tamiya to accent once the enamel is fully dried.

    I noticed the symbol after you mentioned it. I'll definitely take care of that. I have some white background decepticon water slide logos I'll be using on each constructicon when Devy's done - thanks to Frankenformer (Ebay seller).

    Nice, I used that Tamiya color as part of the custom mix on my first Devy.

    Agreed but could have little more volume and mixmaster less volumized sludge ;)

    JBarb, I asked you the same question after I saw yours remember? I thought your Devastator colors were spot on and that's why I used sublime green, thanks to you!

    Stay tuned for more Crimson, it's on its way!

    Jukebox, Hotwire, thanks guys!

    G60, mixmaster's is thicker cause it was spinning in his mixer (know what I mean ;)  )

    Thanks Guage! It's meant to be construction effects like mud, cement, etc. but energon-colored sludge instead :)

    Ah, I see... So are you gonna use some of that Glowy paint to look like Energon Under a Black light, like the one guy used for his War For Cybertron Prime and BB awhile back?

    A bunch of guys mentioned that I should do that, I still may...not sure yet. I will be adding LEDs though (again as mentioned by a lot of fellow customizers). I'm not really a big fan of the glow in the dark paint but I don't know yet.

    Yeah glow paint is iffy but ya gotta admit, the effects it brings are sweet. it would reeeeeeally look great on Devastator mixed w/ some LED goodies. :) 

    Nice job so far...can't wait to see the whole thing complete.
