    Nice paint job. I would love to paint one myself if I could find one of these on shelves.

    I think this is a cool approach to Legends Megatron. I'd recommend going back over some areas since some of the green is still showing through. Aside from that, Megs looks like he's about to bust up some Autobots (or maybe even some Decepticons?)! Keep up the great work :thumb

    Like i said at the archive. Too much green showing thru. And painting the upper legs isn't exactly a good idea due to that area scratching often.

    Generally a better idea to paint the two squares on his lower legs. They're mostly covered in tank mode, so you won't ruin the alt.*

    * Works best if you paint the squares black or dark grey, as that is easily mistaken for shadow when in tank mode.

    I'm not sure, but I think you're using a metallic permanent marker. Those work great in detailing, buy for large areas switch to paint. You'll see a vast improvement. And good job, keep giving Legends some love.

    Yeah. Agreed. For Megs,i always used Games Workshop Mithril silver.

    And get some black for the treads. Then some silver drybrushing on the moulded 'wheel's inside the treads.
