    Hello all, this is my first custom so please be gentle!

    But first to avoid any confusion, I only painted this figure, no body work. It is a KO look at the last two pics to see.

    I was at first just trying to make him look like a sweet CON and as I was making it I was like hrmmm this is alot like Barricade, so hence the whole shattered glass thing.

    I don't find myself being big into heavy repaints and mods, well not now or yet anyways but like adding some detail and color which makes the figure stand out in detail so much more. So I thought I would give it a go and try some things.

    I by no means consider it perfect and it needs a few touch ups but you get the point.

    This was originally a KO BB I got. He came black with the police on the doors and a blue face as you can see in the pics. So I bought some metallic paint pens and used only the purple and silver that came in the pack, thats it.

    The kick in the pants for me was not leaving streaks on the windows. I ended up stripping of the first app and using some clear nail polish to give some texture and depth so the marker would color in better and seemed to work better.

    Any tips and suggestions are appreciated as I see myself doing things like this style again.

    First custom? Now you will be hooked:) 

    I like the colors and I can't really give any comments on what to do better.

    I do find it interesting how they used parts from the concept BB and his 74 model....Looks like an 80's something trans am now...

    Damn that looks pretty good. I've never seen that KO with the old style car body and new style robot body. Wish they would have made the 74 version like this.

    Great colors BTW. Good job :thumb

    New at this?! Damn good man.....I really dig it, it doesn't remind me of Barricade much, which is a good thing! Colour scheme reminds me of a Firebird hmm......

    Excellent work!

    I'd really like to see this figure painted as the rusted 1974 Camaro. Whatever you did to mod those two figures looks more like the 74 Movie than Hasbro's figure.

    Any chance of posting a tutorial for the Mod?

    nothing, thats how the toy came! its a knock off with great plastic quality, a lilttle loose in some joints but very easy to fix.

    yeah its kind of a crazy figure. genzhao(mike) from kototys sells them and ive been getting some in for fellow
    members.

    Also thanks for all the nice comments guys, feels good coming from fellow radicons!

    I love how you brought the two camaro designs together and made a new car. Paint looks good. Nice job overall. If this is the first, I can't wait to see the second.

    He didn't do any modding work on that, IT'S A KO like half the posts in here mention! He only painted it, which is good on it's own. I mean I thought it was custom body work myself but after a little reading I realized it was made this way in China

    I may have to pick this KO up. Like everyone else mentioned, this is how they should've done the vintage Camaro BB.
