    UPDATE: Glossed his car parts.

    I went for a darker shade of gray rather then the silver just cause and then I gave him variable metal tone colors and some wear in bot mode. Car mode comes tomorrow with a couple layers of gloss. Also, tinted his windows black on insides to keep outsides reflective.

    UPDATE: Bot mode has been glossed (car parts only) and got a shot of his weapon. Car mode comes once the gloss dries :) 
    Oh and I threw Crankcase in there too.

    Youve made him look so much better. But its stilla terrible mold. Why are they going backwards from sidearm sideswipe? Give him blades and the takara paintjob. voila, perfect!

    Great work on this one Zac! I picked this figure up last week and I absolutley hate the paint apps or should I say LACK of paint apps. BUT on the flip side! He will be my first DOTM custom! Starting him tomorrow night!
