    You really are good with these prime paint jobs, I could swear at times this was a pic from the show!

    looks good. i like the shine. the eyes are faded in on the show i think though, rather than a solid contrast between white and red.

    The areas where the white meets the red on the eyes need to be blended a bit. They don't have hard, defined boundaries/edges like Megatron's eyes.

    I'm liking where this is going though.

    HA! Wow, you guys sure are demanding. I'm over here painting the tiniest of eyes under a magnifying glass for you guys. I've made the pupils smaller, which helps a lot, but the fading is a huge pain. I might cheat a bit with some pink. As small as they are you wouldn't even be able to tell.

    The eyes, however, do look a lot better now. Nice work with the details!

    Looks great. I want to do this to my Starscream but I'd probably end up screwing it up and making it look worse. Especially in such a tiny area.

    thats actually much better. i know how hard it is. i did one similar, but the main paint apps didnt come out quite so glossy. Yours came out much better. Nice job man :) 
    EDIT: this is what mine looks like.

    Haven't had time for it. Not planning on selling it so it's not a priority. I'll be sure to post updates when I do.
