    Hi all, my first post here over at TFW, though I've been lurking for a couple of weeks now. My more regular haunt is Sector 70, but I thought it was about time I posted some of my customs here. So I thought I'd post my most recently completed custom. (I've just copied the below from my post on S70 cos I'm feeling lazy :sly:  )

    Just a simple repaint of RTS Jazz into Zoom-Zoom. For some reason I had (and for some annoying reason am still having) problems with paint chipping on the doors no matter how much I shave them down. I'm not overly happy with the Alt mode, panels don't seem to want to fit properly, and even though I used the same paint there is a colour mismatch between the doors and the rear of the car :( 
    After the issues I had with the usual matt clear coat (for some reason certain parts were going white) I decided to do the car body work in a gloss clear coat as I remember seeing someone here doing this on a RTS Nemesis Prime repaint and it looked great (the flat clear coat was ok on the bot mode parts go figure).
    So for such a simple repaint it turned out to be a right pain in the butt!!

    Hey bro, haven't seen you in a while.

    Zoom Zoom is awesome, though the red paint arguably looks a little thick. Aside from that, great job.

    Thanks guys, for some reason Stepper/Ricochet did feel right, add that to the fact I love the Red BT Meister and it fit well. My next custom for this mold is going to be Kick-Off, which I believe has already been done, but I want him for my collection now :) 

    Yep it has been a while, only really been posting over at S70, while lurking everywhere else :) 
    Yeah for some reason these photos do make it look a bit thick. That may also be down to the gloss clear coat I used. I also had several problems with the paint on this, chipping and for some reason the matt clear coat I originally used decided to turn white in random areas.

    I'll be getting some of my other customs posted soon :)

    Cheers, more will be trickling through, though mainly my older stuff. Got a few bashes/repaints to do, but I take ages so it could be a while till my next new project is done.... which I have yet to even start :) 

    Thanks all :) :) 

    I'd love to, but I'd feel bad auctioning him off especially with the paint issues. He's fine for my own collection, but I'd want to resolve the issues before I would send him out to anyone elses collection :( 

    Please forgive my ignorance, but what's Cinco de Mayo de Quaddy?
