    Quick commission for a good friend in China who's done more than just "hook me up"... spent more time on the photos than the custom ;) 

    Total paint time : 2 hours!

    I spend a good hour in the bathroom trying to seal up a x-acto gash in my finger tip. The hydraulics on the backs of his legs needed a spring, silly me slipped - and got the blade through the tip finger, into the back of my finger nail. I used pen springs..

    The repainted robot parts look fantastic, but the altmode parts...Eeeh, the factory paint was nice enough, sorry to say. The new paintapps seem a bit to shiny, and the random panel lining for the rear lights are just...Weird.

    Alclad is tricky, so it typing with my 9 good fingers. I've been practicing laying it down, finally got it so it IS chrome and very durable thanks to 2 layers of future and 2 layers of testor's gloss lacquer.

    Devy's batt. pack is just 3 watch batteries with electric tape tight around the sides, so they work as 1, then wires/switch/bulb off that.

    This looks sharp (as always), and I'm looking forward to this mold myself (to just own).

    You've got another great gallery of photos here, bud :thumb  (hint hint:D )

    Man, I need to get a couple of these guys once they're out. One of my favs design-wise and has some obvious repaint options.

    I noticed that, as well. Must be a sign of a good paint job. =) Slick job.

    'Tis a dangerous life we Radicons live. Is that what they mean about 'bleeding for your art'?

    It kinda bothers me that they took a super sports car, sleek as can be, and left it friggin' silver. I mean, really. But your chrome-job looks really nice.
