    FINISHED!!!

    EDIT: My best paintjob so far.. I hate painting metalics so those aren't good, but the Semi-Flat-Gloss grey is just 1 coat :p 

    UPDATE:
    -Modded/flattened the chest to apply the Autobot symbol
    -Carved the helmet and used resin to make a faceplate
    -Painted

    I love this mold and I love what you've done with it. Would be very keen on seeing the robot mode painted up as well.

    I'm interested on how you do the head. I did the same to my Armada Predacon and regret being so brush happy with the black paint on the face.

    I don't know any comics, is it possible to scan and post an image?

    thnx, I need to wait until all exterior work is complete to see the bot mode, since I never even transformed this bot and don't even know how he looks in botmode actually :p

    i'd like to see some detail color on his bot chest. I'm surprised i haven't seen more Grims out of TM1 Megs. it's an excellent mold choice. your work so far is great, i can't wait to see what happens next. this mold has many opportunities for someone with a precise hand to add a ton of little details - you can do it!!

    Well the teeth are already silver made, but it's hard to tell, so I guess I'll make them white :D 

    Thnx I'm flattered ;)  Yes all brush... my apartment is to small for Airbrush :( 
    (since the 2 different areas are semi connected and cannot be sealed, dunno the English word.. but the Dutch/French word is "vide")

    I'll do my best... the will be my all out paintskillz project :p

    So I transformed him very carefully, cuz as you can she I repaired the broken shoulder... but with extreme care... there's no problem... and it'll stay in Dino-mode forever :D 

    Just some touch-ups like I said before.. but the outcome is ok I guess ;)
