    well i did most of the painting
    and now im just debating on whether i should drybrush dark silver on it.
    i like the darkness of the black but the drybrush would make him look more movie like
    sorry the pics arnt the best and you cant see the blue too much D:

    here he is so far:

    IF you wanna go movie-style, then drybrush - if not, then lay on a few thin coats of metal & do a wash...

    If his name is tailgate, why is he a car not a truck? Either way his is still awesome looking.

    The white paint app looks pretty clean from the pics. Is that an Energon Thrust head? Looks nice.

    I always liked this particular mold better then the other one. Kinda wished it was still available.

    I didn't think that head would work on that mold but with the paint added it looks really good. I vote no dry brushing buts that's just because I really don't like dry brushing. Would love to see more pics of this guy with a close-up on the torso/head area

    Reprolabels?

    BTW, nice custom. The white paint job looks really smooth. Nice job.
