    The thing started because in my country Hasbro didn't import Cybertron Galvatron, but only Megatron. But I liked most Galvatron's colors, and to buy a Galvatron from ebay would be too expansive.
    So I bought an ordinary Megatron and fully repainted it :) 
    I use a silver spray coat, then glossy acrylic black (Model Master), Blood Red, Brazen Brass and Mithril Silver (Games Workshop) and some coat protection with Gloss Clear (Model Master).
    I think it will need some touch up and maybe another coat with sealing spray.
    The most difficult parts are the rubber ones, because paint don't attach very well there, and especially when transforming, the paint crackle or simply rip off.

    Wow, that looks nearly authentic to Cyb. Galvatron. Good work there, but I don't know about the face color. The original face color fits the original Galvy a bit more.

    I left the original face color because I like it more than the purple color.
    It says more "Megatron" to me :)

    Damn good work. I'd think it was factory if I didn't read the post. Good job.

    Agh, why did the Armadaverse have to mix Megatron's and Galvatron's colors up?

    Nice job, that's some cool silver

    Wow, very nicely done! Looking at the pictures, I first thought you merely did a touch up of Cybertron Galvatron!
