    Good for a first attempt. I never liked the greenish color they used on this guy. What I do for quick paint on ball joints, if you don't want to sand them down before you paint them, is to color them with a black sharpie so the original color won't show through and the sharpie is pretty resilient to the rubbing on the joint. I know you went for white here but if you made it black the sharpie trick would work pretty well. You can use that with tabs that have to go into holes for transformation and other types of joint too

    Good work man!
    He looks a lot more like Wheeljack now.
    I think you need to work a little on your painting though,
    there a quite a few rough spots visible in the pics,
    but for a first go it's really good!:thumbs2:

    Yep, happens to EVERYONE when we start. I just finished one very similar to yours a lil while ago HERE. You may want to do a lil bit more sanding, that will get rid of a lot of your rub. And certain paints adhere much better than others. You can learn more by using the sticky threads at the top of the forum. :thumb
