    I love the Insecticons and seeing some customs from the previous movie and the numerous numerous version of these guys on here I had to make my own.

    P.S. Also check out the other two Insecticons in the links below.

    Bombshell was made for a DOTM Jolt with a paint job inspired by street racing and rice burners. The honeycombing was done using mini stencils. Where there was overspray from the airbrush I went back and fixed by hand.

    The silver was a bit more prominent until I spray the glosscote on it and the silver faded a bit to give it a ghost like look which I love. Had a lot of fun on this one.

    I do to. Knowing the effects of a laquer glosscote to acrylic lets me know what some possible future custom tricks I will be able to pull of with fading and gradients.

    Thankfully that carbon fiber design is molded into the base figure I would have Neeeeevver been able to make some like that lol. Man I wish I would have thought of a spoiler dang it. Great idea/suggestion as always Chans.
