    So here is a basic repaint a friend of mine and myself did about 3 months ago. total teardown and repaint with flat krylon spray and a red testors model paint ( not sure what shad of red) and quicksilver brushed over the boosters.

    this is the first image with my cellphone, I'll be doing a lightbox later this week as well as a proper writeup.

    You have a great eye for color.... I prefer this scheme to BB's original yellow scheme. This is great!

    :)  I really like this. The cell phone pics are great. My suggestion on this would be to paint his eyes a different color and somehow make his grin more sinister or psycotic looking. Other than that, I'm loving what you've done. :thumb  :thumb  :)

    wow back from the dead! lol.

    Actually I'm in the process of moving right now, but I did make some minor alterations to it since I posted it. I hit it with Tamiya clear red on the piping and stingers, and Printed off a Shattered glass Animated Autobot insignia. I'll post some pics up when I'm done unpacking. Poor guy's sitting in a box with half a dozen other projects that need to be photo'd.

    But again thanks for the compliments. :)
