    Heya gang! So I was bored one day, and so I considered getting Alternators Rumble and Ravage (thanks Insane Galvatron!). With the Alt line on hiatus, and after seeing all the excellent work done here on the board, I decided to embark on my first repaint job!

    So here's what I've done so far on my take on my Alt. Rumble.

    I took apart what I could, but left things like the wheels and roof on, masking them to the best of my ability with painter's tape. It's a little uneven in some areas though, and some of the windscreen got a bit 'blue-ed' up unfortunately. I'll try to clean it off with some thinner later.

    I've also sprayed on some gloss coat, after getting a recommendation for it from reading the resource thread. Here's to hoping Rumble'd turn out...not too crappy.

    Looking good so far! Looking forward to the finished product...

    Word of advice: don't use thinner, it may destroy the plastic. Try 91% rubbing alcohol, or lighter fluid.

    I can't wait to see how this turns out. Especially knowing that Rumble passed through my hands. :D

    And he's done! Still need to clean him up a little bit here and there (have yet to buy that rubbing alcohol), but he's mostly done!

    And some obligatory fighting pics! :D

    Boy was this challenging. I've a lot more respect for everyone who has been doing repaints/kitbashes now. It's fun, but it's really a ton of work! Rumble isn't perfect, but he's definitely transformable and functional and that's enough for me! Of course, until I get a license plate sticker for him, I'm in an amusing situation where both of them are named Rumble...

    That came out great for your first...I like the red on the legs and the silver detailing.
    And that last pic...very cool!

    Thanks for the comments all! :D  A little update here, I finally did the finishing touches on my duo, thanks to Reprolabels. Gave them shiny, mirror-backed Decepticon insignias
