    Cosmetic surgery, get it? Sorry.

    OK, so here's my poor mans attempt at doing what Cheetimus did so damn well. A bit rough but I'll fix that up. Hope you like!

    The primary red of the car is the stock with a clear red coat over top. The maroon is a custom mix I made mixing gloss red and bronze. The hubcabs are a lemon yellow with a little titanium gold in them. The grill is a custom silver made from a flat black and flat alluminium. The racing paint is sky grey, flat alluminium and the custom maroon. Windows are a flat black as I thought flat would be a little spookier instead of a gloss. Etc etc... All Tamiya acrylics. Feel free to ask for anything else.

    Comments are most welcome!!

    Thanks, man! It's a little messy but on the show he has the tribal designs coloured in a gradient with silver lining. Tried to emulate that but gotta try again.
    Haha, awesome! That's my favourite photo.
    Awesome; I look forward to it!
    I've been referred to that video but can't see much difference? I know the chest panels can attach higher up but I like them being mid-way between how Mitch has them and the official mistranformation. Thanks :) 
    Cheers, man! Love your work.
    Cheers, bud!
    Yeah, man, no problem!

    Thank you kindly!
    I agree! It's a great base to work off, though.
    Thank you!

    That's awesome to hear :D 
    The cyberverse Driller set comes with a small Knock Out and a couple of weapons. Borrowed the buzz saw and painted it and gave it to the deluxe/revealers Knock Out.
    Thanks, dude :D

    awesome work! I love the way you "harmonize" the colors. real close to Cheetimus Prime's rendition of him.

    (opening wallet) I'm getting all the necessary colors soon!

    (looking at my Knockout a few minutes later) ... why Hasbro? why is Knockout looking so sad and "cheap"?

    Thanks, man! Yeah it was a damn shame that Hasbro AND Takara didn't give Knock Out the paint job he deserves. Pretty ironic really.
