    hey guys,ok first off this has been the biggest pain in the ass ever to paint!its taken an age!i hope people like it i realize it a little out there but i thought id try something different from my previous paint jobs.

    i changed a few things from my previous versions of this,i made a new chest shield and redesigned a few connections (again) and the eyes in the head....i seriously underestimated how hard this was to do so respect to all the people who do it!and credit to ptitvite of course.

    devy has been airbrushed with spazstix and alclad paints and detailed with a combo of enamels and acrylics and finished in alclad clear coat

    theres some really cool holographic paint goin on in the arms which you can see on the pic with the flash,this ones goin on ebay and i will be glad to see the back of it haha!just kiddin hope you guys like it.cheers

    and i promise im not making anymore of these before i start making people on here mad!

    I am, he's already finished with the build. I posted it up a couple days ago. He won't transform this time around so I emphasized on his strength and durability.

    You mentioned you used alclad paints, how did that go through your airbrush? I can see the paint apps are really nice but how about cleaning your gun?

    Looks solid. I cant say I am a fan of the shiny paint, but the paint scheme is shit on. And the use of the lego joints are great, but what do you do about Hook in Robot mode since the female end of the ratchet joint is on the bottom of the foot?

    Whoa I'm totally impressed!! Cool tones/shading there. My only comment is if the chest shield could be as detailed as the arms... Anyway this is a truly unique color scheme Devy.

    I don't mind the shine but the shade of green doesn't seem right to me. The arms and metallic parts look cool and the overall construction looks great.

    y stop...ferrari doesnt stop making ferrari's just cuz they built it before..they just put a new twist on it....as long as people keep improving and putting a new flare(improvements on design or another paint scheme etc...) on it i dont see the problem....if ur good at it keep doing it...im pretty sure people got tired of barry sanders breaking thier ankles but hell he was good at it and kept doing it....L8s...

    if you buy alclad paints id reccomend using there cleaning soloution,but i use the badger airbrush cleaner-works a charm!actually the alclad stuff is way easyer to clean out than some of the other solvent based paints like spazstix ect.so yeah and if you dont know alclad paints are already thinned for the airbrush so the mix is and flow is perfect,cheers

    While I've never been a fan of shiny, glossy construction vehicles, I can't knock your skills. Great build, man.
