Okay, he's pretty much done folks... I'm trying to decide on whether or not to add the yellow-stripe, since a yellowish-orange stripe is present on the original G1 toy, and a yellow stripe appears on the original G1 Animated series model too. Decisions, decisions. Anywhoozle, "Arn-hahhhd" here had a base-coat in some spots mixed from Tamiya Red, and Orange, and Testors Dark Tan. Then he was painted primarily in a mixture that included Tamiya Red, Tamiya Orange, and Reaper Red-Steel, with a little future added as well. I wanted the final product to have a color that hewed slightly towards a rust-red. He has details in Testors Battleship Gray and Gunmetal, and also a Pewter-colored mixture made from Testors Gunmetal, Tamiya Copper, and Citadel Mithril Silver. The energon-blade was painted with Tamiya Clear-Blue, the backs of his headlights and his grille-guard were painted in straight Citadel Mithril Silver, and the backs of his brake-lights were painted with Tamita Red on one half, and Tamiya orange on the other, before being painted over with Tamiya clear Orange. Lastly, his opaque window details were painted over in a mix of Testors Aluminum and Dark Blue, and his eyes were painted with a mix of Citadel Enchanted Blue and Testors Dragon White. WHEW! I am very pleased with the way he turned out, and I feel the looks so much better now that the Salmon-color plastic has been covered over. Honestly I dunno what Hasbro was thinking with that color *lol* Vehicle-mode pics to come later! Comments are welcome!
