    Hey, guys.

    After finding TFP Deluxe Knock-Out at my local Fredmeyer/and after looking again he was gone, I decided to paint this guy up.

    Here's the color rundown for you guys:
    Testors Silver for the front exhaust, Games-Workshop Boltgun Metal for the grill, Games-Workshop RuneFang Steel for the front bumper/and the rearview mirrors, Games-Workshop Shining Gold for the hubcaps, Testors Model Masters GunMetal for the windows, Model-Color Violet Red for the darker red on Knock-Out's car mode, Games-Workshop Skull white for his face, and Games-Workshop Chaos Black for the mouth-line.

    His staff weapon on the back of the box had the energy lightning bolt thing painted but, not on the toy. SO, I took a bunch of masking tape, covered it up, coated that energy-bolt in silver and then used Dupli-Color Medium Quasar Metallic.

    As always, let me know what you guys think.

    Thanks for the compliments, xdmisato and TCracker.

    When I was printing off the images I needed to paint this guy up, my printer was almost out of ink and so, the printed images came out a bit slaggy.

    Maybe, when I find TFP Deluxe Arcee, I can possibly do the same to her.

    Looks great. Was this hand brushed? Gorgeous if so. I'm jealous.

    I'm excited for your Arcee. She's a ton of fun to paint.

    To answer your question:

    A good majority of this toy is hand-brushed/hand-painted. I used Krylon Silver as a base-coat, then I used Dupli-Color Red Pearl as the main red.

    Thankfully, when I bought the Dupli-Color paint, I asked one of the employees if the paint would work on plastic since I also told him that I work on custom toys.

    Awesomely, he said that the Dupli-Color paint will work on plastic/like Transformers toys since most car bodies are made of plastic nowadays.

    And to let you know, I haven't seen Arcee in my Oregonian neck of the woods yet.

    How did you get that gorgeous fade effect on the doors?

    To be quite honest, that was already there.

    The original paint-job of the toy/before I custom-painted it had that silver to maroon fading on the doors.

    I'm not that skilled to do an effect like that, and I'm certainly not gonna try it with an air-brush. I'm too inexperienced to handle that thing.
