    I've only managed to take pictures of this in truck mode. Robot mode pics on the way in a day or 2. This is a special new range of metallics from me. Starburst metallics. The colours are richer and have very very minute metallic flakes in it. Unfortunately, the pictures can only capture the richness but not the effect of the metal flakes.

    Ok! Some updates. Still fiddling around with the camera and settings. So bear with the slightly inconsistent picture quality.

    Hyuk hyuk hyuk. It's not the paints. The paints are the same. Mr hobby but how I apply the base colours and coat. It's taking me 20-30% more time coz I gotta use those low temperature ovens for this process. Took me a few months of experimenting though. The process is not 'perfect' yet but I hope to perfect it further in a few weeks and months to come.

    Urghh! I didn't. Haven't been up-to-date with all the new add-ons and arrivals. But I doubt I have the time to actually add on to this guy.

    Very nice~ This moves away from the candy look and toward more solid feel of it. I like it a lot. Definitely an inspiration to us all. I wonder if there will be days when we get to know the secret in the how to process. thank you for sharing your work, looking forward for the robot mode pictures.

    Ah! Too bad the upcoming project will not be able to utilize this technique as it is in white! But for the 'blue' one, Starburst Metallics will be used!
