    So I just started this in the last day and a bit. It's just started/the first passing of the brush, but I am strangely envisioning a 08BB/CJ rainbow army...(updated pics to come)

    You are repainting what some can't even find. And you're naming it... Nectar? I already have an 08 BB so whatever. The color is nice and you have a great paint application, but is 'Nectar' seriously the name?

    Color looks great, but I gotta agree on the name. But really it is just a name and it is your custom after-all, call it what you want.

    Great color! I see a couple of minor flaws here and there that look like they could be a hassle to fix. Perhaps doing some very careful fine sanding. Be careful not to paint to thick of coats. I've had that problem in trying to make things even.

    I think some racing decals would really make this repaint dynamic.

    Edit: Overall a nice job.

    lol whatever, what should I name a green bumblebee? Alligator? Toad? Hoist?

    He just came out for 2nd time here in Canada so I picked a 2nd one up for this.

    It might not meet your standards anyways but I did say I just started it and this was my first pass-by of the paint...

    Hmm, good idea, I'm not that great with white though...and I need to find another 08BB, which it seems will only become easier as time moves towards x-mas.

    My last comment was a mistake :eek: 

    I first typed "not a bad job" and I wanted to give you more kudos and say "Overall a nice job" but I forgot to erase "not" which makes me look like an ass. Lazy posting strikes me again.

    Don't take my other criticism personally though.

    Yeah I'm not a super amazing painter anyways so I don't have a super high standard of what I think looks good so no worries!

    Surprisingly, that color looks really good on him. You have a good eye Paradigm-Shift Prime. I would call him G.I. Bee.

    Nectar is a cool name, much better than slapping some G1 name on it or some stupid, trying-to-be-badass cliched name that alot of kitbashes end up with like "Shadowstar" or "DarkBlade".

    Good work thus far.

    I like the color you chose. You also did a nice job painting him. It has a nice smooth coating of paint. For some reason, I think the name Nectar fits him, so my vote is to stick with that name :thumb . I can't wait for bot-mode pics.

    That green Bumblebee looks good, but even I have to say that the name "Nectar" just sounds a bit ridiculous.

    Nice work. And very nice not to see another metallic-dry-brushed-battle-damaged BB.
