    the third and final revisit to this mold for a local commissioner.(this would be the seventh time i've modded/repainted this mold now)
    the paint looks really basic,but that was kind of the intention....till the lights go out.
    this is also my first stab at using glow in the dark paints.i don't want to revisit this kind of paint again for awhile now.
    during this project, i was also reminded just how much longer it takes for enamels to dry compared to acrylics.
    i also found it pretty hard and tedious to paint the glow in the dark portions as when you're applying it,it's like using invisable paint.
    only once a layer has dried can you turn out the lights and see where you missed or if it's not even yet.
    i tried my best to take some pics of the glow in the dark working,but again,i suck at pics and for some odd reason it's waaaaaay brighter in real life than my pics.(i did turn the flash off completely though)

    Really nice job, love the glow in the dark effect and the clean paint job.

    edit: Is that a WFC Powermaster Prime in the background?

    A clean and crisp job. How did you remove the color on the hubcaps? The pink seems to be annoying me :D

    lolz,thanks. you have a point there though,it's kinda weird to call him "ultra" without his clothes on:D 

    thanks,and yup,you called it:wink: 

    thanks!!

    thanks!!

    he's got a long arse name.....wfc power/target master apex bomber prime:D 

    thanks mang!!
    the color wasn't removed.it was painted directly over it with tamiya metallic blue "x-13".
    if you want to remove the pinkish rings on yours;some rubbing alcohol,q-tips and some patience and you should have them removed in no time without damaging your bot:thumb 
    thanks again for the kind words guys!

    thanks for the kind words guys!!

    @auceps prime, there's a seperate thread for him in the radicons somewhere,maybe try searching "all threads started by" myself.
    (i still don't know how to do link things to it:eek: )

    edit: found it.
    search "chanformers", in radicons, it's on the 5th page at the moment:wink:

    That looks really cool. The glowing bot mode pics look super cool.
    Was that done by hand or airbrush?

    Looks great! Painting white in general is kinda a pain much less glow in the dark, you seem to have pulled off both perfectly!
