    This is a revisit for Transformers 1 Megatron which I have always wanted to do it . Been doing alot of practice in airbrushing and manage to get what I need on this guy .Just completed 1 pair of legs still got its body and hands to play with .
    Will be quite tough in the progress but I'm enjoying it .Do comment and give critics on these .I know there is still room for improvement .

    Looks great. I'm waiting for an airbrush for my birthday and thought to myself that my TF1 Megs really needs it. This is an inspiration for me. :)

    Reminds me of the movie prop in the first movie which are just his frozen legs in the hangar. Speaking of which, are you adding frost or ice? I thought there's a reason to the thread title.

    Nice airbrushing, btw. Very smooth and clean.

    Excellent work, it looks very, very nice. What clear are you using? Lacquer gloss?

    It's looking wonderful.

    I'm reminded how much I'd love a decent Movie 1 Megatron toy.

    When I see this finished, perhaps I'll invest in an airbrush of my own. They always seem to produce such a better effect then the miserable brushes I'm using.

    I think perhaps a combination of all skill makes a custom more complete. There is some portion where we cannot use airbrush like tiny corner which hand paint is a must . Air brush is really something u need to to invest if u want smooth even surface . I will b updating the completed piece soon so stay tune .
