    hi guys,just wanna share a oldie before he gets redone in the new year ala "pititevite/frenzy rumble" styled giant classics devastator.
    these guys were done way back in 2001 when the buildteam first got released.they were also done before i had the benefit of going to sait to learn autobody,or more importantly...priming and base coating. lo and behold,in 2006 the universe line relesed these bots in almost the same color scheme in exclusive 2pacs.(though i still can't find them)
    all paint used on these guys at the time was automotive "clearbased" enamel,which is another reason i have lots of color bleed through.the cool part is that this custom team is almost 8 years old and the paint's not chipping too bad.the bad part is i'll be stripping the enamel paint off when i redo these guys for version.2.

    Cool man! But, wouldn't using them how they are now serve as a good base coat for the ptivite Devs?

    Or do you just want to sand em down and start over?

    I was wondering why noone ever tried this before. The paint apps and design work very well...
