    Hi Guys,

    I finally finished my latest project!
    I`ve been practicing on some DOTM figures I bought, just the basic stuff:
    - turn grey plastic into metallic silver.
    - turn dark grey into black.
    You know the usual stuff to make your figures look better.

    Well I got the courage to give Megatron a proper paint job, because he deserved it the most.. poor guy.
    I might go back to him and finish some details, or do some pieces I forgot/left out.

    I would like your guys opinion, keep in mind this is my first ever (complete) custom, so be gentle! :) 

    ( will take better pictures once I can! )

    Looks great! Wish Hasbro can make a decent looking Megatron for once. (it's never going to happen)
