    so i got my rumble and frenzy today, yay!



    looks like ill have do some serious paint work on rumble, boo!!!


    the gold on his chest is only half there. the top half is, the bottom isnt.

    the paint apps on the red eyes is also sloppy on both figures.


    do any of you in the know about paint have any ideas to help me about what tools i should use (what kind of paint etc.) to fix it.


    i really have no idea and i should probably just buy the stuff online, so any links will be great.

    If it's the chrome, it's gonna be hard to match a paint to it. And paint will never shine on the same level as the chrome. Unless you paint over all the chrome on the chest. I'm sure you don't want to do that:( .

    its the shiny gold, not chrome. "chrome" just refers to silver color right?

    Chrome is not specifically silver, but rather is just more shiny and maybe mirrorlike. Chrome can be any color. Beast Wars Transmetals used chrome.

    You can also try a gold paint pen. If it doens't match well, just clean it off with some Testors paint thinner for your local Micheals.
