    The Ultimate Battle Megatron

    I tried to keep it G1 but then I started to get in to the detail and the metallic look. I tried, but I was having to much fun and lost my concentration. Still looks good I think. What do you guys think. I know - I'm still an amateur, but thanks to SonofNemesis and a few pointers I think I'm getting the hang of this. I attached 2 photos with Optimus, which was my 1st repaint, so you can see the difference.

    **For some reason the pictures all were removed. I'll add them again later, but for now I added the water mark decepticon symbol on his chest and he is now on ebay along with the optimus from the packaged set.

    all things considered, you did an amazing job lad, amazing - Kup TFTM

    if I "had" to complain, I'd say it just needs a little bit extra color to break up the metallics in bot mode. Sort of like on g1 where there were "buttons" on his chest and such. Otherwise a nifty repait. Good job.

    You did a great job on Megatron here! I'm loving the detailing on the treads! You are very skilled for someone who considers himself an amateur lol!

    I must say, that is a SICK Megatron man! Excellent, excellent job. I am glad my tips (which I have learned from many others) have been able to do you good and it shows. Nice little accenting details - looks great!

    I am going to put a decepticon water mark sticker on his chest to help break it up a little. I tried to figure a place for the buttons but because of the tank mode it made it very difficult. So, needless to say i put them on his waste. I did paint the sides of his abs a dark red to go with the arm joints (a little more G1) but you can't see that in the pics. Thanks for the comment and your constructive critism I appreciate it very much. Can't wait to do another 1 :)
