    Very Nice, I love painted decoys, but would have the guts to do it to any of mine.

    See, this is all I do. Painted decoys is where it's at. Who cares that they don't transform? They are so much more show-accurate this way. Plus, you can always make another toy to represent the alt mode.

    Nice freakin work, Antapp!

    Those are cute...sort of like Robot Heroes, but way before their time.

    I'd like to see someone doing resin recasts of the Decoys, for just this sort of purpose.

    I have. I made a mold of Reflector. Even fixed his mismatched arms and gave him shoulder articulation. I casted it seven times to make Reflector and 4 generic MTMTE robots. And I made a camera mode.

    Thanks for the comments guys! :thumb 

    The paint I used is from a local store, and the are called 'Miniature Paints'. They are acrylic and provide a smooth finish. Only recommended for non-transforming models though. I used them previously to create an army of AMs (see link)

    Some are done by Joe Toscano of www.custommasters.com, a good friend of mine.

    I'm hoping to get back into kitbashing after Xmas. :)
