    Hey guys. It's been a while since I did a custom, so got a couple of TFs and decided to do some repaints: starting with converting Skyhammer into Springer.

    He's just a simple repaint, since I didn't know how to mod him like autobox23 can. I primed him with gray, then drybrushed him with metallic gunmetal gray, a mix of metallic green, forest green and olive green, some metallic red and copper for details, yellow and metallic blue for his "sunglasses"

    Hope you like him :)

    That is really awsome. How did you go about avoiding paint rub on his legs? they are a busy transformation.I have a custom coming up and i'm worried about painting him.

    Very Cool! Did you intentionally make the colour scheme a bit like Skyquake or is it just coincidence? Cos if you look closely there is a resemblance.

    Nope, just based it off of G1 and autobox23's version
