    So, I finally got a digital camera, and I've been going back and taking some photos of all the customs that I've done over the years. Here's some of the most recent paint-work that I've done:

    Arcee

    I fixed Arcee's bird-beak and added some highlights to her arms and boots. I also modded the bracket that attaches her exhaust pipe to her frame, so it grips much better now.

    Bumbleebee

    'Bee got repainted like crazy; drybrushing, highlights, and yellow detailing. Then, I replaced some pegs that were looking pretty weak.

    Jazz

    Jazz just got some drybrushing and detailing. He was pretty much perfect from the get-go. I don't know why people were having problems with his arms; mine fold over and the tabs lock down, holding the arms together.

    Wreckage

    I repainted Wreckage to match his 'Stryker' concept art. I was really impressed with Jin's repaint, so I took a few cues from him, as well. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd welcome them. I'm short on cash, so he's going up on Ebay soon. I'll update with a link to the auction, if anyone is interested.

    I know folks have been painting in his translucent parts, but I like to keep all the action-features functional on my customs, and I count the light-piping as a feature. I dulled the surfaces on the red parts, though. You can't tell in the pics, but they resemble heated metal now, sort of like Optimus's blade in the movie.

    Cool Wreckage repaint! I like it a lot, the transparent parts actually look okay like that. :)

    I really hope they do a green re-paint of wreckage.

    Great customs!
