    Here was a custom I finished up a few weeks ago for the Cystic Fibrosis charity auction that WarriorPriest will be hosting in honor of his sister. Here is a link to thread.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/creat...charity-auction-customs-donations-thread.html

    The idea is to do purple bots and cons with purple paint schemes. As soon as i bought this fig the idea hit me. I actually like this mold A LOT.. in black..

    Flat black, metallic black, satin black, teal/blue, purple, and black chrome..

    Here is to hoping to raise some money and awareness..

    I will have truck pics up when I get a chance...

    Man, that sword looks killer. In my opinion, that sword was the hardest part to paint on this entire figure.

    Even though there is a meaning behind it, I am not digging purple on him. The windows and sword look great though. Also, Endust is your firend my good man! :p

    I'm not a huge purple Nemesis Prime fan either, but I understand why you did it that way and I support the cause. Everything looks very well painted and yes, that sword is beautiful!

    Keep up the great work man!

    You know what it is I'm having the biggest problem with? It's the damn windows. I can't paint them without having brushstrokes showing, making them look like a mess.

    Oh, I hear you there. I used vinyl decals wherever I could. Stupid translucent plastic.

    I thought about using vinyl as well, but I didn't like the idea of having to cut around he shape of the windshield wipers. I may very well have to revisit that idea. I have no idea what's up with that clear plastic, but usually, isn't clear [somewhat] easy to paint?

    Scuff it with 2000 grit sand paper and spray the paint on it. It will stick just fine.
