    I wanted a short break from commissions, and picked this guy up on Sunday morning, (not to brag lol) but he was done in about 3 hours. a STRAIGHT repaint, no MODS! man, that was a relief...God bless house of kolorz laquers, you can see how easy and shiny it was to apply with air brush.

    Enjoy!

    Hey Frenzy Nice take on the airbrush!
    You used House of kolors custom paint? The one made for the automotive?
    Did you like it? Very fun to work with on real cars and transformers don't you think!
    Nice repaint, I like it alot!
    I wish I could get toys as fast as you... damn canada!

    Did you use a clear urethane?
    you said it was lacquer? Diddn't you mean urethane?

    Wished I could've seen your take on a ladder mod, but the paints just bring an already great toy up another level. Great job.

    And in 3 hours. LOL I've been working on Arcee for 3 months now (granted, working on her is far short of being a daily thing).

    Thanks guys, the ladder was an option, but I am booked solid with projects to make one, I might add as a bonus item on the auction. I believe a 3rd party (fan project maybe) is making the add-on ladder.

    The paint is a lacquer paint, it's horrible smelling, and without a mask - even I get high and a headache after a few minutes (dollar store has effective pollen masks ten packs, go get some)

    There is NO clear coat on this. That's the paint, I thinned it with some lacquer thinner, and sprayed it. Although impossible to see in the pics, at close up, it's got metal flakes in it too. I might take some time and add on some articulated hands (sorta my signature, possibly from an alternator..)

    The decals are water slide, remade on the computer.

    Man, you're preaching to the choir here. I'm so backlogged on shooting/editing photo galleries of my work it's not even funny.

    Somehow, plowking, REDLINE and myself still get a chuckle or three out of it though.
