    Thought I'd share my latest project. The other member here, who also did this repaint, was not joking about her being a pain in zee ass to paint. Good freaking lord.

    A few differences in the paint apps when comparing to his arcee. Her face will be completely different, since her original face is gross. Let me know what you think so far.

    Mainly the freaking pins! And masking the tape to get even lines.

    Also...just to point out. I added the upwards triangle on her chest to resemble the G1 arcee.

    I have one that I'd be willing to trade for Cybertron Ratchet. Send me a message. She's mint in package. :)

    man that looks nice. I just fear the day Hasbro decides to drop that scheme as an official deco. It's damn near impossible to get her right now, let alone such a tasty looking repaint

    I hate you, I hate you cause you have her and are doing the same thing I wanted to do. You really should look onto getting a G1 head, I suggest that Spoonman character, seems kinda shady though. Haha!

    Nice! I contemplated doing this one ONE OF MY ARCEES (sorry guys), but looks like you got it covered.

    I can see how painful it would be to paint (especially white). The arm balljoints, the wrist and the leg/foot assembly is a nightmare.

    I right there with ya man. She is a pain to paint. It looks like we're doing almost the exact same scheme minus the black. :) 
    You going to use the MyClone head too? That's the route I'm trying to go. I have a feeling a lot of people are giong to be doing that since the price for MyClone Arcee has jumped on eBay.

    I'd hate to use the myclone head. I already used it twice on the blurr mold. I have one more myclone set, but i'm trying to find other options for this one.

    Have any pics of your progress?

    Understandable. I've never used it, so it's new to me. :) 
    No pics yet. I don't get a lot of time to work on mine so she's still in scattered white pieces. I'm painting all the ball joints now. That's been my pain. Sanding and painting trying to find a good way to keep them from rubbing paint off.
