    Afternoon all

    As usual I was bored at work and thought I would do some detail work on a DOTM Bumblebee I bought last night. Everything is stock except the thumbs (I couldn't stand the minimal range of motion on them) This is strictly a WIP, and thought I would show the fruits of my boredom lol. There is still ALLOT I wanna paint on this little figure (it may or may not turn out well as my eyes and hands aren't as steady or young as they used to be lol) Please forgive the quality of the pics as well, they were from my camera phone :) 

    Have a great one!!

    You should do the carbon fibre details on the arms and shoulders! I haven't seen that on many Bumblebees...

    Took your advice of the CF "tattoos" on BB's arms (and before anyone says anything, yeah I know the ones on his lower arms are wrong...but ya know I kinda like it ;)  ) more to follow (Not gonna do any of the "Movie realistic battle damage/worn" type of work, I am going for fresh off the show room floor type of thing lol)

    Very clean paint details. I'm liking it.

    Did you use Citadel Paints or something?

    @Soymonk, thanks, I used plane Jane testors enamel, tried acrylic paints but the flow of them didn't work for me.
    @hthrun thanks!!

    Just an update pic, worked with some head details and redid the lower arms, need to redo the left one tho and retouch the yellow painted areas. Also did some paint work on the front tire fold outs. Still needs allot of work but he's coming along :)
