    This is the first time I've ever tried to do a repaint of a figure. This is RID Megatron with a coat of flat black and dry brushed aluminum on top. How'd I do?

    Looks really nice from afar. Makes him look a ton better! A closer picture would be nice to see some of the details

    For a first time repaint, you did a great job keeping the paint smooth! Might want to think about doing the same paint to the cannon and hand claw thing.

    I bet this figure is going to go through a lot of repaints since it's my first repaint too :lol . I was on the fence about which parts I wanted to paint silver vs gunmetal and after seeing yours, I think I'm going to go with silver then use the gunmetal for detailed spots (feet, hands, etc). I already painted his blade in gunmetal and I'm going to detail it a bit (spikes, edges of the actual blade) in silver.

    Nice repaint though :D
