    For those of you who dont know. There are two variants of Powered Convoy. Takara reissued the standard grey trailer.

    Which can be seen here.
    Powered Convoy - Movie Preview Edition - General Takara Re-issues - TFW2005.COM

    However there is another trailer version called "Mekki" for the chrome. I had a spare Diaclone Powered Convoy trailer and decided to use my junker Ultramagnus trailer and paint the sides and trailer bed to match the Mekki Trailer.

    Here is the real mekki trailer. There were two versions of this as well. The standard Powered Convoy and the uber-rare Powered Convoy Delux Set that came with Red Mirage and Black Sideswipe.

    And here is my repainted Ultra Magnus Trailer. I just swapped the arms and blue parts from my spare trailer onto UM's parts.

    Looks really good. Looks like it's moulded in that colour rather than painted.

    Im assuming you are talking about the chrome paint for the bed of the trailer. No. I had to paint the sides white as well. On Ultramagnus the bed of the trailer, where Deepcover is sitting, is all red. Bed and sides. The white sides you see now, were once red.

    True, but if persons still want to discuss the work, that's fine. Expecting a response from the artist isn't :lol
