    Thanks.

    Yeah, I was planning to do that to repaint the remaining plastic parts in silver, however I rushed it put it on display this ToyCon event here in the Philippines which the event starts tomorrow morning (Manila time).

    I'll repaint it after the event. :)

    Great work heer0! The drybrushing has good texture and isn't just flat silver like most do. Too bad I won't be able to pass by Toycon to check it out. :)

    Wowza! Looks great! Love what you've done with the gray parts. May I ask what color that is? Brand? Might as well ask, where to buy? :D  Thanks! Man! Gotta love those legs...

    What's wrong with that Autobot symbol? I remember Peaugh mentioning removing it on his too. Am I missing something?

    speaking of which, does anyone notice that there is an autobot symbol right on his chest? Small one, hardly visible. It's right above those two golden cylindrical things on his chest, right between the windshield. Cause, I had just notice it :)

    isn't the windshield detachable? or are you referring to the gears that are attached to the windshield? If so, then I fourth this!

    Sorry for the late reply.

    Anyway, what I did on the painting of the gears behind the windshield of RoTF Optimus Prime figure is that I dismantled the windshield part to paint the gears.

    First thing that you'll do is to remove the windshield parts from Optimus's chest. Then underneath the part you will see a screw there, remove the screw using the screw driver that will remove the internal gears behind the windshield but you have to be careful in removing it the pegs holding it because it is glued together so try removing it gently not to break the pegs.

    Once you removed it, the gears will drop and you have to place it somewhere so you can see it, the parts and gears are very small. Try studying it how you remove and where the parts are placed so that after you've painted it you will know where the placements of the gears and parts when you put it back together.

    If you have any more questions, feel free to ask me.
