    So, because people like to see alt modes, here they are.

    Mixmaster-a mix of gunmetal and blue with a slight blue pearl over it. Then silver for the stripes.

    Incase you are wondering about the color for rampage and Scapper, it is testors flat yellow and a little bit of testors rust enamels.

    I have added "dirt" splatter by holding the tip of my airbrush to a popsicle stick, and depending on the angle, you get a light fine splatter or a thick pattern.

    Those look awesome!! I can't wait to see Overload! Oh wait...........yeah, thanks Hasbro!

    I like the splatter effect, thanks for the tip! I have used a toothbrush before to make splatters. you dip the tips of the bristles in the paint and then run your thumb across the bristles (wear a glove!) and remember to run your thumb from the farther end of the brush towards you, or you will make splattrer effects on yourself!

    These look great encline! I love the weathering and the hand painted (?) lettering and decepticon symbol on Demolishor.

    Just some minor nitpicking though I think the dirt splatters look a little too big and all over the place on Mixmaster.

    Looks shooped. Should have feathered it a little better. Great weathering though! Love Rampages treads.

    Amazing job. Everything looks so real. kind of agree with the mixmaster comment, he;s a litle too dirty. Could be the tires clashing with the cab color though.

    You seem like your a master of your work, they look so damn good. Could photoshop a tiny man in there and it'll look believable :lol

    Ahhh, just trying to keep up!!! Thanks though:) 
    The letter and logos are water slide decals. This is my first try with them. They turned out okay. I learned a lot. They are tricky little things!!!

    Thanks by the way!!

    Yeah, I know. I am trying to make my pictures better. So, practice and honest feedback is the best way!!!!
    Thank you.

    I used to work doing concrete, so I was just thinking about how dirty those things would get. They are in there in just the dirt you know. The drum should be dirty all over, but I see the cab looks more dirty than it should. Plus the dirt is much more subtle in real life.

    Master, I WISH!!! One day. You know, no matter how much I focus on all the details, something I missed always pops out to me once I post......:banghead: 

    But thank you for the kind words.

    And by the way.... your sig makes me laugh so much every time I see it. No doubt yours, and the one with Prime asking "you been talkin' bout my lips again", are my favs!!!

    I think the truck's grille is a little too dirty. Like I'm thinking about how the wheels would splatter mud/dirt about, and I don't think the dirt would be up that high on the grille because it's in the front of the vehicle. (I hope that made sense)
