    My final commission I will be accepting/completing on this figure. Transformers Prime Voyager class Megaton in a super reflective mirror chrome finish. This is one of the BEST chrome jobs I have done yet. The chrome is extremely thin to not hide the figures details, but produces one of the more reflective finishes I have done, which made him a BITCH to photograph. He was also given a very slight height modification that sizes him better with TFP FE Prime.

    The entire figure was stripped of factory paint, washed, degreased, then base coated in House of Kolors adhesion promoter, high gloss black, and Alclad II mirror chrome. Details were done in a mix of acrylic and enamel paints. I installed a high intensity red LED in the head/eyes, as well as a high intensity purple LED in the canon.

    The head and canon LEDs operate on their own battery pack that is accessible.

    If you paint the inside black, and do it well, should provide light bleed prevention.

    Looks awesome....

    Did u clear coat the figure or no? Ive been practicing with that chrome paint but i notices too much handlin was making it kinda smeer a bit and loose the nice mirror effect, wondering if glossing it keeps its mirror effect nice. I had an aluminum that looked beautiful until uncleared it, then it just looked dull silver
