    I haven't done a repaint in a while and haven't made much progress on my heavy projects so I thought I would do this. Plus the little guy is awesome enough to deserve it.

    The red is a duplicolor ford touchup paint others are a mix of acrylic and lacquer paints. This was also the first time I've used a wash to bring out the lines on the doors and grille. Overall I'm pretty happy about it.

    C&C welcome.

    Everyone seems to be coming out with ROTF Hubcap customs these days. Awesome shade of red! My only gripe is that the unpainted plastic parts stick out like a sore thumb.

    kinda agree with mampy, i love how it's painted but the unpainted plastic is just a wee bit obvious. still the altmode is a thing of beauty :)

    Ya. It doesn't show up in the pictures but there is a subtle drybrushing on those parts. I didn't want all of the robot parts to be the same color, and after noticing some of the brown plastic with some drybrush on it, I actually liked the look. I do agree it doesn't look great here though. I'll probably go back and give it a wash to help the drybrush stick out a bit more.

    That colour sorta looks like a shade reminiscent to candy apple red... I wonder how Hubcap would look w/ a blower perched on his hood & a set of fats out the back... [​IMG] Nevertheless, that's a nice job Mate! :thumb

    Thanks for all the kind words everyone!

    ya. It's actually the same color as my expedition. lol. It's some paint I had left over from helping a friend build her samus costume. lol.

    Originally I had planned on building this guy as an homage to laser rod volt and thought about adding a blower riser to the hood. I'm glad I didn't in the end though. This looks so much cleaner of a street rod.

    I really love this one, How much would you charge for you to paint another one?
