    Very nice. I like the choice of green you have used and the weathering.

    Thanks man, believe it or not the green is a "stock" mixed paint called "Electric Lime." I bought it in a quart last year out of frustration at the lack of a better color. Turns out it's nearly a perfect match to my G1 toy :)

    hmmmm. I have no more respect for you......

    I am just kidding, these look great, I think you just need a little more light to help the details show up!!!

    Oof, I almost took the first comment seriously :) 

    I'm no photographer for sure, but hopefully can snap some good pictures for the finale.

    It's(drumroll please)...


    El cheapo Wal-Marto ColorPlace, mixed in a flat acrylic exterior base. It's pretty darned durable so far, and of course after clear coat is tough stuff. It goes on very smooth, and the best part...$6 a quart :D 

    By the way, the purple is of the same stock, though I can't recall the color.

    Thanks David! Those vents worked out well, by the way. Speaking of such things, Mixmaster is the only one lagging behind, the others are nearly ready for clearcoat then decals!

    If I'd get my head outa my arse and decide if I want to stick to the stock shoulder/arm setup or modify it...Mix would be ready too :(
