    That is a nice custom! I realy like the silver colouring and the black used to bring out the molds details.

    Really makes the mold look rather nice. Only thing I could say I maybe don't like is that...I dunno, just needs something to break up all the silver.

    Even still though, that is some great work.

    you could leave the feet alone, I think that just by painting a different color on the thighs and the elbow parts it would be enough. nice job on the blackwash though.

    The thighs were originally black, instead I painted it with testors acryl metal grey and then the wash. I guess I sorta went overboard with the wash making it too dark I guess.

    Thanks for the compliments guys! Keeps me motivated...

    no, the wash is awesome. the point is, he's too monotonous, that's all. the whole piece is basically one color, technically two(which are so similar). pick pretty much any color you want, as silver will go with anything. if you color the thighs and elbows, you won't affect the realistic jetmode at all, but you'll "break-up" the monotonous silver scheme you currently have, thereby greatly improving an already really nice piece.

    It kinda looks like those metal A/C on stands. It looks interesting. I like the colour a lot in robot mode, but somehow for me it doesn't work in jet mode.

    Indeed...i mean seriously, what the deuce were they thinking?! This mold doesn't even look like a Transformer, it looks more like one of those hideous lego bionicle thingawhatchamacallits.

    Anyway least the paint makes it look a bit less of an eye sore. What type of paint did you use?
