    This thread is now about Prowl...

    Anyway, here it is, finished.

    BTW, this is the last time that i paint something in white... This thing keep scratching and never appears as it should be...

    So, repainted everything , even the windows! When this damn white paint (testors Gloss White) past through the masking tape, i had no other choice than to paint the windows (used testors Gloss Blue). When i did the body parts, i didn't put as much paint as for the car mode. I thought that it added a feeling of scratched paint so i left it as it is. Used Tamyia metallic blue (X-13) for the right mirror/front light/spike at the bottom of the torso. I used testors' model master' guardian red for every red parts. Tamyia black (x-1)was used to hide some grey panel then drybrushed with flat aluminium (XF-16). I also drybrushed the mini-shoulder pads with some red.

    I placed the hood parts this way to make it look more like G1 Prowl.

    This isn't my best paint job, but i think it still enhance that mold a lil' bit.

    And, as always, C&C are welcomed!

    Looking good! It doesn't really matter what people's opinions are. If you had fun doing these projects, that's all that matters.

    Great jobs! I like what you did with Prowl there, it looks like a pretty natural progression between War Within Cybertronian alt mode and Movie Earth mode.

    In my city, there's actually a Corvette cop car, so that really caught my eye. He looks great so far.

    I have seen that megatron in person while in WIP status and I can confirm it looks badass. I wish I had the guts to do the same to my leader Megs. It would look much better.

    Also, I really dig the Prowl custom. It's different from all the [cool] red Sideswipe repaint out there. Can't wait to see it finished!

    Great work dude! :D

    Looking good man.

    I like what you did with Prowl. Using the side view mirrors as the emergency lights was a brilliant idea. It doesn't take away for them sleek look of the car. Plus, I could see them doing this in real life too.

    Win/Win :thumb

    Thank you all!

    More pics added.

    But more importantly, i won't change/ resculpt this head. with some paint apps, it should do a somewhat good Prowl movieverse head.

    Also, read my first post edit.

    Prowl is looking better and better!
    No need for a new head sculpt. A grey face, a white helmet and a red crest is all you need.
    Also, will you be adding detail to the bot mode? Knowing you, you probably will :D 

    Can't wait to see the final result. Keep it up man!

    Prowl's bot mode is BADASS dude! I love what you did with the head. It's exactly what I had in mind with the red crest and all.

    I like how the folded car hood halves on the back actually look like doors (much like G1/Classic Prowl has). Was it intentional on your part?

    Also, what color did you use on the 'mech alive' parts on the legs? I'm having a bit of trouble making it out.

    Keep up the good work man!

    You are right! I placed the hood part this way to make it look more like prowl used to look.

    For the knee pads, i painted them black, then washed it with some red then applied some silver drybrush.

    Anyway, i plan to finish this one by the end of this week (if everything goeas as planned).
