Just got this guy but wanted to tweak him to be more show accurate.
Awesome job when do we get to see pics of the altmode?
Eh, when I get around to it. It's very secondary to me. This one is for my shelf, no plans on selling it so I'm not too concerned with TFing it any time soon.
Very nice! Great job picking out all the details, andd for making his blue the right shade!
Damn good if you ask me. Imma gonna do the same and credit you.
Heh. Thanks, man!
looks good. i like how smooth the paint is on the car mode. the gloss really stands out. I think a shade of two reds would make him even closer to the show, and tinting the windshield in black.
What would be the best way to tint the windshield black?
Yeah, the windows are bugging me too.
The red is a bit brighter than the show. I'm not sure if I'll change it though as I kinda really dig it. If this were going to be for sale I would in a heart beat.
There are a few ways to do this, my personal technique is using a brush with a small drop in the enamel thinner, then dipping it in black enamel paint. The thinner will allow the black paint to be malleable enough to avoid leaving stroke marks. It may take a few tries if one isnt used to doing it this way. I am learning new ways of using said technique to enhance my brush strokes every time (some of my earlier customs were a bit rough so i had to go back and redo them). The easy way to do it, is simply paint the windshield with primer and then black. This saves the trouble of screwing up, and it takes much less effort.
