    Well, busted out the ol' Sharpies and went crazy!

    [​IMG]

    Nemesis Prime got a new sword of fury! Rodimus got a new visor and Megs, well, he got:

    Red eyes. (not visible in pic due to angle of head)

    Red joints.

    Black shin details/straps.

    Black chest detail.

    black scope and barrel tips.

    Red scope sights. (not visible in pic)

    various red and black details.

    All done with Sharpie mini pens! (except Nemesis' sword handle, it had to be painted)

    lol, I remember going to town with sharpies on my "ugly colored" hotwheels when I was little. (Most of them ended up colored black though)

    Pretty cool!

    Sharpies do make a good medium with certain plastics

    It actually blends in and looks like a pro job

    Megatron doesn't look good at all, IMO. You can see the sharpie lines on the scope tip, and the red and black clash with the purple. Looks half done.

    Props on Nemmy and Rod though! :thumb

    I used a flat black paint on my Classics Megs scope tip. I also took the cap off of the shoulder and used a flat gray paint (the orange was just bugging me so much!).

    Props on your work! Sometimes customs are as much about experimentation as they are about completion. :wink: 

    Keep on truckin' man! :thumb
