    Phew. 3rd one today. Silverstreak was modded with Gundam fists but...ehehe. I ran out of articulated ones and he was given un articulated Gundam fists. But hey, what the heck. they're still Gundam right? hahaha.

    This might be my fav to date. It looks so good. Where did you get those hands? Also, let's see some more Decepticons. I would love to see you tackle the Stunticons.

    i love it, all cars should be glossy, well b/c they're cars. but it looks like you painted over the headlights, and i'm not digging that too much. other than that, i love it.

    You know? You should repaint the Alternity into Silverstreak.

    Haha. Well, I bought a ton of gundam parts many months back. Those unarticulated hands were in the carton. Actually, you're right. I really didnt do many decepticons. Last one is Galvatron.

    It's the love. :) 

    Well, thanks.

    From Gundams?

    Yeah. I didn't realise that the car mode had transparent protective plastic for the headlights. I painted over it. The lights can be seen in bot mode though.

    Oh, His original blaster rite? It's somewhere in my box of parts. Hahah. Forgot to use it to take pictures.

    Well, it's been many months! haha. I am still waiting you know.

    I really like this one, being one of my fave molds from the universe line and all. But i gotta say (dont take this the wrong way or anything) but i think the alt mode looks a bit strange because you didnt paint on the headlamps. Apart from that: Perfection as always.

    Very nice! IMO a shiny finish beats a dull looking matte one every time especially on TFs that turn into sports cars.

    Eheheh! I really overlooked that part. Not sure if I can still repaint it into a headlights shape though. My bad :( 

    :(  see above. I overlooked the transparent plastic protecting the headlights.

    Thanks. Well, all transformers should be shiny especially when they're from me! :D

    They should be shiny anyway since theyre meant to be made out of metal. :2c: 
    The lights shouldnt be too hard to paint on, just get some masking tape and stick it down onto a cutting board and then draw out the shape you want then cut it out with a sharp hobby knife and use it as a stencil for the paint. Same basic technique as the "making basic flames" tutorial on here.

    *whistles* Wow, that is quite nice. I can't help but marvel at his paint job I am just loving the colors, and the detail painting you gave him. Plus that shine. He almost looks diecast in those pictures.

    Then there's the hands... Never thought of using Gundam hands for some reason. 'Tis a nice touch; it really adds to the figure.

    ...Mind if I ask which Gundam sets have hands that would fit best?
