    I washed his details in sky grey thinned down 3 to 1, dried and excess rubbed off with thinnner and q-tip... face, legs, chest, arms and hip.

    Eyes were painted, long sword was painted gloss black then dry brushed with gold in the middle of the hilt and the blade was dry brushed with silver making the cybertronion symbols stand out.

    Nice work! It really brings out the details in the mold and that sword looks MUCH better now.

    I had planned on doing the mold detail like that when I got mine and seeing it actually done makes me want to get it done faster. There is a lot of detail in the mold that get's lost in all the white and this makes it look supurb! Nice job!

    The symbols on the sword are not Cybertronian, they are in fact, Chinese, pretty much means "second to none" or "One of a kind"

    I completely agree. I think one aspect you really nailed is making that panel lining very subtle. Great work :thumb

    Thanks a lot for the encouragement guys! :) 

    The Star Wars lightning looks nice on the blade, lol

    The glowing eyes done on that drift looks amazing! Brings it to life ;) 

    Well now I feel like an ass, my girlfriend was trying to tell me it was chinese or japanese and I told her he was cybertronion, so it must be cybertronion writing... I was wrong, LOL

    Generation Drift Car Mode (90%)

    Almost done, need one more coat of peral white and need to touch up the front grills and tail light, but here is a teaser shot :thumb 

    Stripped the red paint off the car mode and painted in tamiya spray pearl white, replaced the ugly rims with chrome rims from a local hobby shop for model cars. Back hatch windows were sprayed with tamiya metallic blue.

    Bot mode pics can be found here:

    Are you going to be adding the graphics back on and do something different, or leave as is?

    Randy!

    Leaving it white. I never liked decals on import cars. Takes away from the beauty of the body, IMHO
