    Clear paint would work better then sharpies. Otherwise, great job.

    Can you get all the pieces to snap into place when you transform him into vehicle mode? I can't get mine to fully line up no matter what I do... there is always a gap somewhere. Just curious.

    i have managed it once or twice.
    it seems its more of a design issue than anything else

    You could use a bit a masking tape, cut it to shape and stick it above t'rims.

    Wouldn't make a mess then.

    Looks good either way, nice and clean.

    Almost bought a few things off ebay off you i think in the past.

    Good work really sharp. If your afraid to do the rims tape off the tires or if you paint the tires silver a bit touch them up with back. I think all rims should be painted.

    Sharpie makes plastic go sticky after a while, I have a bunch of figures I did that too when I was a teen, and they're all ruined now and hair/dust magnets
