    First things first - Jin Saotome deserved FULL credits for this kick ass idea. I only copied him and painted Soundwave using my own style. As you can see, it is not as awesome as Jin's but it will do with the limited painting abilities I have. I will not post pics of the alt mode as it is just basically like Percy's except in blue.

    Points to note:

    1- Percy's head was summabith tight fit. I broke my thumbnail trying to split the damn head.

    2 - Fate would have it that I ran out of clear yellow and so was my hobby shop. So, I will make do with the chrome on his chest at the mo.

    3 - This is all hand painted, sucks not to have an airbrush :( 

    Again, thanks to Jin for the awesome idea. You rock :music 

    Here are the pics.

    I can't wait for a RTS Perceptor to show up around here. I really want to do this!

    Awesome job, I liked how you left the inside of his chest red.

    Nope, it is working for me. I posted the same pics in other sites via photobucket, they are showing.

    Anyway, I hosted some in majhost, hopefully you can see them now.

    This is the best one I've seen yet. I really liked seeing it in Cool Stuff, too. I think you did an exceptional job on it :thumb

    Looks great man! Don't knock yourself, I hand-paint almost everything these days. But if you can, snag some Tamiya For Plastics spray laquer. Dries fast and looks great. Also, how did you attach the head?

    This looks fantastic. This idea just works so well.

    HAND PAINTED??? I wouldn't have guessed... the blue paint on the body looks like it was molded in that colour. Really clean!!
