    Hi all,

    The HA Bumblebee I did some months ago wasn't the MOST well received custom I did. Initially I like it though, however, some weeks ago, after a critical look I decided it was sub-par. I could do better >_>

    This is the one I'm talking about:

    Anyway. I sanded him down entirely and redid the car-body in a glossy yellow, which was sealed with gloss-coat.

    The robot parts were sanded down, re-basecoated and drybrushed again.

    The result is a HA Bumblebee, which imo, looks better the it's predecessor. The carbody-parts are, unfortunately, not 100% smooth, because I used a too rough type of sandingpaper, before I switched to a -really- fine grit one.

    And yes, the windows are kinda scratched up...No sanding without taping up the windows or something next time haha!

    Blah!

    What did you do to him? He's the same colors. Any improvements you made are not noticeable next to the sloppy yellow paint. No offense, but I don't see the point in the yellow paint. He was already yellow.

    *Edit* Just realized this is the same BB you painted gold before. At first, I thought you bought a second one to do another attempt. My bad.
