    That is very cool. I like it. If you can get Swerve or another Sideswipe with a head swap, you can make Karr.

    This is a great idea. You should go for this! KITT is looking great so far. Nice job! :thumb

    Very cool idea. I can't wait to see his alt mode. And CARR would be a great idea as well.

    Pretty cool! I'd leave his robot parts flat-black, but car-body parts gloss black. Don't forget to add some silver accents, semi-gloss black, tire black for detailing as well.
    But so far, pretty cool. I always thought the real KITT would make a killer Autobot, and KARR would make for a killer Decepticon. This is a nice one!

    Yeah man that turned out really nice! I like how subtle yet full the reds turned out...did you spray him and then detail with a brush? You can transform him into car mode and then give him a nice glossy clearcoat. I've repainted figs and then continuously added little details to them for months...I really like this though!
    Was it better or worse than you thought it would be? and Any thoughts as to what you're going to re-paint next?
