    Hi,there.
    This is the post of recent repaint Megatron. By posting the pictures, hope I can share the rusty personal manner with you guys who want to have a try.

    This Megatron is repaint based on the Game "Transformers" , so the color I use is combine color by couple mixed up to get a close similar with the Game.

    Instead of showing the whole model repaint, I considered the process could be long and take you guys time to understand it (again, sorry for my bad English). So I choose the Decepticon logo on this Megatron's back to dispaly the different between before and after.

    To repaint this part, it took 2 and a half hours to complete, again, for the detail repaint, it need your patience more than your skill.:) 

    Hope the pictures can tell the process clearly.If you do have further question about the rusty, welcome to PM me and leave it on this post,I will try my best to explain.

    Thanks again for your time.
    have a nice day!

    Wow. Very cool! I'm confused on the toothbrush though. Are you using that to chip away the paint after it dries some?
