    This is my first real custom! Only thing I've done before is light drybrushed Steel on my Landmine figure.

    Finally did the green on HA Roadbuster's vehicle mode, so I finally feel like I can post him, even though he still needs his robot mode done and a custom set of Reprolabels.

    Paints used:
    Testors Model Master Gloss White
    Testors Model Master Gloss Green
    Testors Model Master Gloss Black
    Testors Model Master Gunmetal
    Testors Model Master Steel

    If you do a coat of Gunmetal and then heavily drybrush Steel over it, it almost perfectly mimics the look of the Stealth Force parts on the movie cars. Also, the Testors Gloss Green looks IDENTICAL to the green plastic used by Hasbro in nearly all light; only when lit under a white LED lamp can you tell the difference, and even then it's barely noticeable.

    Thanks! I've gotta wait until the Deluxe Leadfoot labels are done before I can place my order, though, as it'd be the same person who's doing those labels as would be doing my commission.
