    It may be a while before I get a chance to add his Decals and Die/Paint the Canopy, so I wanted to post these first. He was a lot of fun to paint.

    Edit: Thanks to Noisemaze for the assist! :thumb

    Nice work. The blue is a little bright, but it would work perfect as a COBRA forces jet. :D

    They aren't very good pics. Yep, Krylon Red Pepper and Patriotic blue. Then Testors Model Masters Dark Gun Metal and Polished Aluminum for the silver and graphite.

    It's the Hasbro (I paid too much for the Takara one to dissasemble it and paint it.)

    Cool. The blue looks factory done. Just curious, how did you get the canopy completely clear?

    Looks really nice - he could use a bit more detailing in robot mode, like on the chest fans.

    Personally, I think that blue is more suited for a Dirge. It's similar to the blue I want to use for my Classics Dirge repaint.

    Just stripped it in Rubbing alchohol as usual. I want to go more for a Muted Yellow than for the orange. I may do that tonight. Then, paint the un clear parts of the canopy blue.

    Yeah, I figured Dark Gunmetal for the fans, a light wash on the vents on his mid section. What colors for those raised areas inside the intakes on top of his shoulders? Little help???

    So the orange was actually painted onto the canopy? Instead of it normally being the actuall tint of the clear plastic?

    Very nice Autobot, I like the color alot. Mine when photographed comes out an almost teal blue, but is darker in person.

    My only complain is the thighs. Why did you decide to paint them black, and not blue?
