    Hello all, this is my first time posting anything in the Radicons section.

    Ultra Magnus and Minimus Ambus are pretty great figures on their own, but in hand they just needed some additional detailing to really make them stand out. Hope you enjoy the pics!

    oh man! This is even more amazing than I initially thought! You really brought out the much needed detaling on the alt mode.

    This is absolutely gorgeous. It looks just as good as a 3P figure. I'll have to do this to mine when it arrives this week.

    Thanks for all the comments guys! I'm just an amateur as far as customizing goes, so I appreciate all the feedback. It's amazing how with just some paneling lining and a few small paint apps the figure looks totally different. I wanted to add some blue on his crotch and knees, but I'm terrible when it comes to paint matching :) 

    For those of you wondering what I used on Ultra Magnus:
    - .3mm Gundam mechanical pencil for the white parts
    - Fine tipped black Gundam marker pen for the rest of him
    - Yellow, red, black, gold Gundam paint markers
    - Ultra fine point red Sharpie pen
    - Fine tipped silver metallic Sharpie pen

    For Minimus Ambus I used:
    - .3mm Gundam mechanical pencil
    - Fine tipped grey Gundam marker pen
    - Grey and gold Gundam paint markers
