    Agreed! Good job on your first repaint. Can't wait to see vehicle pics.

    BTW... is that plane in the background the inspiration for the color scheme? ;)

    Great paint job. Is that white teddy bear suppose to be backup well get that bear a blaster and he'll be ready for a fight. Anyway whatever you call him is okay by us. Would like to see what the alt mode looks like. Awesome job.

    Very clean and very nice. That orange stands out in great contrast to the blue. Great job.

    Nice. Very different from the standard repaints, but a *little* flat. The black and orange stand out well on the robot mode, but the truck mode needs a little more oomph, imho.

    The alt mode is awesome, kinda reminds me of old school semis back in the day. Anyway Grock35 I just came up the name Brave Maximus, but its a thought anyway like I said whatever you name him is really up to you.

    Very interesting and unique color combo, and nice smooth paint. Score points for originality too. I approve of this repaint.

    What kind of paints did you use? Also, what were the "don'ts" you learned?

    Thanks guys...I do agree that his truck mode needs a lil more color which i'll add this weekend probably...as for the paint it was Excel Spraypaint in Hunter Green, and Testors Flat Black Acrylic Paint Marker, and the Orange from the Testors acrylic starter pack from Wal-Mart...as for my don'ts....don't do a thick coat first....don't do a constant spray but just a lil touch here and a lil touch there....don't spray on cardboard because your object will stick to it....don't touch your item a day after it was painted even though the paint says dries in 10 minutes because you will leave fingerprints in the paint...that's all i could thinks of right now

    Nice. Except for the orange, it has a kind of paramilitary look to it. :D
