    This is an update from a past post on this figure I originally made weeks ago.

    Since that post, I have updated the following;

    - added metal color tones to his feet (super mode) and knee caps
    - added red color scheme apps to his legs
    - added his inside chest apps and matrix
    - added more red striping to his battle armor
    - added the marker lamp color apps to his tractor/shoulder tops
    - added steel tones to his chest top markers and the handles on his doors
    - fine-tuned the overall edge work
    - added 2 light coats of semi-gloss

    * I have posted pics both with camera flash and without.
    * I still want to do something more to his chest (thinking about doing FrogDna's G1 cartoon style reflections).

    That works really well as Ultra Magnus.

    That's a very nice-looking and creative Ultra Magnus.

    Thanks for the comments! These 2 pics are older vehicle mode pics that I posted weeks ago. They don't have the updated paint apps. I will post new vehicle mode pics up soon as I get my camera and stage this sucker. Thanks!

    Looks good. I like the painted light effect of the matrix. Color scheme really works for Ultra Magnus too!

    Thanks! I tried something different with the matrix to make it look active.

    Awesome! I wanted to do this a while back but realized I'd probably have to do at least 3 coats of white :lol . What kinds of paints did you use?

    Thanks for the comments guys! Will of Unicron, yes I painted the whole matrix (front and back) and the inside of his chest cavity. LemonPrime, I used an airbrush and tamiya paints. The paint went on very smooth and easy.
