    Hi everyone. This is a straight repaint of WFC soundwave which I was hesitating whether to go with flat or gloss in the first place. At last, I decide to make him look metallic but a metallic with scratches around like how his appearance in the game or concept art. The figure is shaded all over the area to give more depth since this guy has not many details and also the color scheme is pretty straight.

    NICE!! I love your paintwork and your choice of colors

    One thing I might change though, I would add more blue to Soundwave's lower legs. There is a tiny bit too much silver on him for my taste, but that doesn't change the fact you did one hell of a good job.

    I also have a question; what technique did you use to get the "scratches" effect? It looks pretty cool!

    Keep up the good work, man :)

    Thanks dude! I love your led custom too, very Awesome!


    Thanks man!

    Thanks! I think what you mean "the gray parts" is the "metal look" parts right? That is silver paint with shading.

    Thanks Algernon!!!

    Thanks bro, hope to create one soon.

    Thanks grayfox, The scratches on blue parts, I use laquer silver paint with small brush and slightly apply paint on the edge/rims logically also with some drybrush only on the edges as well.

    Is it more adhesive than other type of primer? I also use it (with only metal or part that looks not so adhesive for paint)

    I think it sticks to plastic better than other primer.
    I always keep the ability to transform, so it´s working for me. Just try
