    Got a couple of these for myself, and after a recent commission that I finished, I was inspired to paint these. I went with the G1 toy color scheme, trying to match as close as possible. These were also influenced by F_R and Solrac333's drybrushing techniques, as they are completely drybrushed from head to toe. Its still a method that I'm playing around with, I dont think I do it quite as good as they do.

    Both were completely dismantled, base coated in Krylon Ultra Flat Black, then drybrushed with Testors enamels. I coated them in Krylon Matte Clear for protection. The little micro faction symbols were provided by Boggs6ft7, and they're friggin tiny!

    Off the top of my head: Guards Red, Red, Blue Angel Blue, Bright Blue, Insignia Blue, Silver, Steel, Brass, and Clear Blue Metallic


    Thanks guys!

    You're not kidding, I had to try a couple times until they went on right, wasted 5 decals in the process.

    I think we might be able to fix that.
