    lol, yup :) . I have never laid a hand on a Gundam Marker before (didn't even know what that was until recently.) Took me 2 hours on this guy.

    I'm currently working on panel-lining Generations Cyclonus, and markers are all well and good, but SO time consuming, a nice wash and rub down will get you similar effects a lot faster!

    My mix: 1 part black (can be any colour, so think what you want to do, Purple works quite well on decepticons as well), 10 parts water, and then mix in a blob of PVA (elmers) glue. Make sure your Transformer is clean, then daub that stuff on! when it's dry to the touch, put a little water on your thumb and clean it off where you don't want it, gives a great effect!

    I'm not belittling your Thunderwing, it's actually almost talked me into getting him, it looks aces!

    Lol, hmm.. well, I'm not gonna start commissions until either when I graduate (June 2011) or when I turn 18 (January 10, 2011.) I'd probably charge just it's market price, plus Shipping and Handling. Then I would charge for the type of job you want me to do. for panel-lining like this, probably just an extra $2.50. any mods needed, depending on type of mod, adds from 50 cents to an extra $1.00. any subsequent mod would do the same

    Considering Thunderwing's bio, your panel lining goes an excellent job of crediting that... His bio line states that he's a destroyer, and your panel lining kinda gives off a look that he's covered in the ash and soot of the worlds he's razed...

    Good job :thumbs2:  Makes me kinda want to do this to just break up the Mr. Clean/out of the package look he has...
