    I'm planning on making a cosmos out of real gear longview, and I know that a few of these have been done. however I can only find one on our boards here, and I'd like to look at a few different ones for some ideas. one in particular was hosted on transtopia, but appears to have disappeared when they switched to seibertron's hosting. any help (images) would be greatly appreciated. the minibot project lives on! :)

    Here goes some additional pictures
    This was my worst painting experience. When I spray painted the second cote of green paint, it started flaking....turtle's back.
    I had to clean it using some thinner then tried it again. It did some flakes but alot less than my first attempt.
    Also had some trouble painting the yellow paint..... the head went pretty well tho :dunce

    let me guess...krylon? if I'm right, I'll tell you how I guessed. how did you do the autobot logo on his chest? is it a clear backed sticker?

    No, at that time, there was not much Krylon colors at WalMart. there was mostly Colour Place and Excel. Nowadays, Krylon and Rustoleum takes most of the paint isle at walmart. I've been using Krylon and Rustoleum for my latest bashes and I did'nt have any problems.
    The logo is in fact a clear faction symbol from Reprolabels.

    I had problems going back and respraying krylon on something a week or so after an original application. it caused my first layer of krylon to spiderweb and bubble off. I've only used krylon one other time since then. it's all hand paints for me.
