    I was bored, so I decided to do something today - I really don't like how Hasbro uses grey plastic to represent metal (I know... picky...) and I thought it ruined universe Galvatron (funnily enough, I quite like the orange actually - I'm using him as a Dead Universe Galvatron, so random, eiree glowing-style pieces seem to fit. ).


    So i attacked him with a gundam marker, as you do. :D

    That's a sweet job! Care to share any painting tips for those of us who are less experienced?

    trust me, I have no experience (this is only my third custom lol) ^^

    My advice though would be to buy a Gundam Marker online. Brilliant little paint pens, easier to handle than a brush, and goes straight onto the plastic. Once it dries just go on with a black liner and do panels, shadows, etc. Galv took me a couple of hours, and virtually no stress.
