    Well, here I go on my third custom paint job. I found a store near me that carries the Testors Model Master, and Tamiya acrylics. Pick up some thinner, and Future as well. Here's what I've done so far. Once I have a good copper body color, his dark gray will get gunmetal, and then I'm going to try some graphics. Wish me luck.

    I'm assuming the gunmetal will cover up the inaccuracies in the copper paint. You should also do a glossy black on the windows. You're gonna have to touch up the copper in that area anyway.

    I'm curious to see what you're going to do with the graphics. Stick to the movie design, or design your own? Anyway, good luck.

    For the grey part, I'd look up Humbrol Metallic Black. It's a bit gummy, so you want to be VERY careful applying it, but it looks really pretty.

    An update on Mudflap. The copper isn't as dark as I wanted it to be, even though the color is called "Dark Copper", but it's working. Added the gunmetal accents, and will be doing some silver and copper highlights as well.

    If you ask me, the copper looks great. It looks like the hood could use a second coat. And it leaked on the windows. I'm assuming you're gonna clean it all up, right?

    Anyway, keep it up. Got plans for the robot mode?
