    Hi!
    I´ve repainted BB into CJ. I´ve based the Magenta red on a clear Mr. Metal Primer, then added a few layers. Finally covered all shell with clear coat and then sanded of here and there...Added some scratches and silver. Not done yet.
    Robot pics tomorrow.?

    i think less smudges on the black would look a little better, but this is great

    I like the beat up look. More in tune with the WFC game.

    I would like to know why the black is smudged in the first place. It was already painted black when it was Bumblebee, so why is it smudged? Why did you not just put tape over it and work on the yellow areas?

    Very Neat idea but much to much drybrush in the back

    And Metal scratches on Windows? These are my only 2 critics here

    Weiter so ! :)

    I would say less "battle damage all around." If you're going to make it look like he was manufactured that way, since Bee/prime from the factory don't have battle damage..

    That said.. If you DO keep him with scratches you know you'll have to go back and fix boringbee err bumble bee to have some more accentuated battle damage!

    Good work man!
    You have a different head for bot mode? :) 


    Because it's his design and he wanted to? Because he wanted it more in tune with the gritty dark damaged bots of WFC, vs the shiny new never had a bullet fired at them look that they come from hasbro?

    Nice job. He loks pretty cool and I love the gloss finish on the red. The only problem I see with it is that it looks a little rough on the rear driver side window.

    THX. ASAP!

    THX. Well, I could have done a Sabrina-shiny look.
    But since there is a war on cybertron, there´s need for more than a perfect paintjob
    ____________THX__________ for the comments!
    All of you!
