    My friend Glenn and I finished this about 9 months ago, and it's what got me into the whole Radicon scene. We used model master enamels and a badger airbrush for the bulk of the red and blue. Model master acrylics (black and steel drybrushing) for all the "metal" parts. Yellow details are a little choppy, but give me a break, I was new.

    Wow! VERY nice. I'm not a fan of the yellows that the Classics figure has but yours look fine. The red is a very nice shade and so is the blue. Makes him look die cast.

    Wow. I have to say thank you all for your comments. I didn't think after everything everyone here has seen that it would be much but I guess I was wrong. i have many other projects for you all to be looking forward to, including but not limited to:
    Sideswipe
    Sunstreaker
    Ultra Magnus
    Scorponok
    Optimus Primal
    I even have a Sky Lynx in progress

    Awesome!Only things that I'd do different,change the yellow parts(ex the headlights) to,maybe,silver,and cover up the peice that hangs down(of stripes on front of cab),and the silver on the arms,I'd do in red.Other than thoses nitpicks,It's exactly what I'd have done.
