    Complete (or pretty close to it) I may add a black stripe in the middle.

    I manned up and actually painted the stripe!

    Final robot mode coming soon

    Bingo!

    I was going to stick with the red, but when I painted the inside of the legs black, it showed though. So maroon it is.

    Yep, I just trimmed the ears off, and it seemed to really work as an updated G1 homage. For a while I was considering Runamuck and Runabout, but I was always a fan of Deadend.

    Yeah, hopefully I get a nice smooth coat, I am the least confident using sprays.

    I'm going with a Honduras Maroon, which should end up looking like this

    Then I'll create the stripe on a decal sheet, instead of painting one on.

    As mentioned earlier, it is from Beast Machines Jetstorm. Glad you like it.

    Unfortunately I busted the door hinge completely off and it is lost. I got this toy from a junker lot and it was already cracked, superglue didn't help.

    So I ordered up some Camshafts for cheap. I'll have to wait to finish this one. Then I might do Wildrider next.

    That's not even the paint I intend to use. I just mixed some gun metal black with red acrylics while I wait for the other paint to arrive.

    Overall it turned out pretty well. Now I'm not sure if I should use the other stuff, or just clear coat this.

    Thanks guys. I wish I had a better camera. It's amazing how much better a quality camera can make these customs look.

    I'm glad I decided to use the Honduras Maroon spray paint. It applied very smoothly. One thing that didn't work to well however, is trying to apply that same paint using a brush on spots that I missed. It just took the paint off around it instead.
