    This is my second attempt at this mold and again I like this one better than the previous one though I made this one very similar to the first except this one has more detail and I added more 'dirt' to it.

    I kept the same sooty look around the thrusters as well as I can't help but think that those would be dirty in reality due from burning fuel or energy.

    I like that you kept the treds black, everyone who does this repaint paints them silver, and it just looks much more dynamic with the black treds

    I agree, I like dirty treads and the black adds to that dirt. Megatron's too ruthless and too much of a warrior to care about cleanliness.

    Oh thanks, I actually totally repainted Legends Sideswipe, O. Prime, and Iron Hide. I also did Legends Megatron and Starscream too. They were fun little side project. The Sideswipe has newly painted rear windows that didn't come with the toy from the store. I painted them on - looks better now.
