    So you've seen G2 Motormaster and G2 Deadend. 2nd last of the lot. G2 Dragstrip. Really had a whale of a time doing up his checkered pattern. ENjoy the pics!

    Really sweet! The checkered pattern looks great, and the metallics need no comments. Also love the fact that you left his entire chest yellow, instead of pairing that little inset bit another colour, really makes him different to Mirage/Drag Strip/Fracture.

    I only have one nitpick (and it is a very minor nitpic, although one that I noticed almost right away). The checkered pattern in robot mode is different then the vehicle mode.

    Other than that, this stands with some of your best work. Great job!

    Sleek and sexy as always :) 

    I've always wanted to ask you though; is the Mirage mold difficult to repaint? I remember when you first did the Henkei Mirage you mentioned on the eBay listing that you never wanted to revist the project. I'm thinking of doing a few touch ups on mine.

    payton already nitpicked so now my turn :) 
    Why did u leave the rims black? Painting them chrome or yellow would really make it better.

    But as always smooth paint job

    The tires look very rubberlike. Did you scuff them up?
