    Happy New Year All!
    I finally finished painting and got to taking some pictures of this. Pretty happy with how it came out.
    Modded his chest so it tilts like in the film. Repainted the yellow with a slight sparkle to it, and gloss coated for shine on car parts. The pictures don't do the look of the paint justice. Made a cannon arm out of styrene and some pen parts. All robot parts painted to look metallic and used. Couldn't decide if I should add a steering wheel, ala Crefigz, so I didn't yet.
    All comments are welcome. Thanks for looking and please enjoy!

    pretty colors. Love the reflectiveness of the clear coat. I wish someone would post a how to for the chest mod though. I'm bot at all sure as to how to make that happen.

    Nice mod indeed!! IMO, the hand cannon looks a bit too rusty but still realistic

    Nice work, man. Thanks again for the cannon.

    Just a suggestion: take a look at the support bar that runs across 'Bee's back, where the front quarterpanels/doors attach. Round off those square edges, and you can flip up the doors.

    No problem. Was happy to make it for you. I may just take a look at that support bar.


    Thank you all for your comments. I agree that the cannon is a bit rusty, but I wanted more than just silver and gray. Maybe I'll add some more black to it.
    Thanks again

    I just noticed that you added the little yellow parts to Bee's upper arms, that's sweet man.

    That what's sold me - if I find this guy, it's major modding time...
