    Hello Autocons!!! Wow! It’s been a while...and it’s good to be back. So I picked up this guy last weekend and had decided to give him some “umph!”. I gave this guy some weathering, detail touch-ups, and clear coating... and boy, he looks awesome!

    Sure! I used Testor flat black for all the panels as a base coat. Testor Aluminum silver for weathering. Then Testor copper for other minor parts like the schocks, wires on the shoulder, etc.. Testor clear coat spray for the car body. Then Tamiya clear coat for the arms and legs.

    Thanks Chaos Muffin. That was a crazy idea though. I thought i wouldn’t be able to pull it off. I wrapped those headlights with white painter’s tape and painted on them. Just in case I ever screw everything up, I can just peal em off.

    Oh that! LOL!!! That's just a NY inspection sticker. The car got NY license plate, it should also have a NY inspection sticker too, LOL!!!!
    That's just for kicks though, it was not shown in the movie.

    Fabulous! Looks so lean with the kibble repositioned like that. That paint work is next-level.
