    Can't really call it a "Premium" if it sucks. can you>

    This is my first "major" repaint, so be soft on me!

    So what I did is I painted the wings on the back and the ones on the arm silver. The face silver, the horns on the head silver. I also did "Weathering" by painting a tiny bit of silver on the purple and rubbing it off, leaving some of it still on it. In person it looks like metal painted over with some of the paint coming off. Also did this on the leg.

    For Nightstick I painted the one main barrel silver, with the molded in detail on the underside gold. Rather impressed with how that turned out. Don't know if I'll do the other barrels silver, I don't like how it looks in robot mode at all though so it's not likely.

    Also painted the vent thingies and parts of the feet silver, the paint on them sucks in the pictures though, I'll most likely re-do these bits.

    really nice detail work on nightstick!
    I love that silver too. practically looks like chrome!
    prolly my only critique I have is that his grey parts that connect the arms to the chest could have used the same chrome paint for a little bit better aesthetics.
    all in all a great job, way better than what I could do!

    Sweet, thanks everyone.
    I can't get the name of the paint right now, but the brand is tester's. It is a very very nice silver paint, along with the gold.

    @chapsy
    I was going to paint all the grey and thigh pieces silver, but I'm waiting to see if I can find a nice looking gunmetal-ish color. But I might just paint it silver.

    I can do a video of it if you guys want.
    The camera records video WAY better than it does still pictures.

    Looks good so far, tho the other unpainted grey plastic areas could definitely do with some attention; the gunmetal idea sounds like a winner.
