    My second post, again appologize for the poor camera.

    We can all agree that Jazz needed some much needed paint apps. Again, just simple paint pen, and that tail lights are of all things done with nail polish...dont knock it lol.

    Nail Polish has some AMAZING colors. I used Nail polish instead of paint on one of my Maquettes, and it turned out better than I could have imagined, just make sure to use fresh nail polish....and the stuff dries out fast...

    Nice, I need to do this to mine as well.....especially the rims...

    very nice, just the back windscreen left to do ;) 

    I'm doing the same to mine at the moment, done the rims and his door handles, just need to get the red and blue paint.

    Yeah, I am considering doing the back windsheild, and I am also gonna add a small Autobot symbol to his hood once I get some from reprolabels.

    Creative use for nail polish..as one who uses this product, just remember it will chip and wear off over time..if Jazz is just displayed and not used it should last for quite a while tho.. Now I know what I need to do when I get my Jazzie. :D  :thumb

    Games Workshop acrylic paint would be a better alternative to nail polish, it has heavy pigmentation so it sticks easily, and you can coat it with future floor polish to make it much tougher too.

    That said, these little changes make a big difference to Jazz. Top stuff :)
