    COMPLETED
    Commission ROTF Megatron. I did one for myself at the same time that I did his, since he partly paid by sending me a second ROTF Megs.
    Took me less than 4 days to complete both.

    Looks good man, I wonder if you could highlight those gold thrusters a bit? Maybe add a lighter shade just around the outer edges to make it look like light is hitting it? Just a thought man, looks good just as it is too :)

    Well i did put a bit of ink wash weathering in and on the thrusters.
    He is shipped out now though and the customer was super happy with it. I'm happy with mine too and he is in my collection, so mission accomplished! :)

    Yep. Testors sprays only take a few hours to dry enough for me to continue working. Plastic fusion is dry enough to continue working in under an hour and I can carefully work around reinforcement sculpt. Doing 2 at once meant I was able to concentrate on one while another dried. I've done 2 of these before so there wasn't much trial and error. As my customers know, i put 8 to 15 hours a day into commissions if possible around raising my 3 children. And yes, 3 kids and customs is my job. :) 
    I take pride in getting quality work done in as little time as possible and keeping my wait lists low or nonexistent. I love making custom toys! keeps my mind off other things.

    Also, Wylungz, the customer referred me to yours when explaining generally what he wanted. Thanks for being so damn good!

    I am ashamed that I don't remember who told me this great tip, but the hands are shoulder parts from a mcfarlane spawn figure. I hope the original genius to do this speaks up here.
