    This is my 'first' repaint. Well, not my first but the first I've posted on here. I painted it with House of Kolors, Testor's enamels, and Reprolabels' Sideways set.
    Pretty obvious the colors, but I airbrushed Silver for the body, base black for the robot parts and dry brushed Testor's steel and silver with copper and gold highlights. Lastly, I re-sculpted the hood so it was flat.

    Looks nice. The wheels look like they need to be touched up though. Other than that, I really like the details.

    I have to agree with most of the comments so far.
    Your paint job looks great man and the Reprolabels Sideways set really makes the car mode look real.
    Very well done.:thumbs2:

    Thanks guys! Means a lot. I have more pictures of my work to post, but they're not really of Transformers.

    I hope to get a few more Transformers done this summer too.

    I edited my post .I think word "clean" is a better choice than "clear".

    Thanks Deadpoolninja, glad you thought it was awesome!


    Einis, I guess it is just the use of an airbrush and masking tape. I'm not too sure what else it could be. I'd like to say skill but it may just be practice too.

    Nice work man. And welcome to the TF bashers community. If you have other works, by all means post them, people post repainted figures of all genre's all the time bro. Also, what is this "hood mod" that people are speaking of??
