    Well..
    I got one of Venksta's gold scout kits off ebay and plopped it onto my RTS bee and was disappointed.. Not at the kit, just how little planning I had done that the kit would even work with RTS bee.

    Then browsing the incarnations of bee that exist I say.. Oh that united version looks too nice..

    off to ebay! $50+!? Screw that where's my paint.

    It's still a WIP, I've got some places to touch up and add some paint to (you can see the door arms aren't on yet). The chest is unfortuante as the paint I used as a primer I used decided it liked to start eating through the plastic, so I had to sand it off the best I could. If I can ever find a junker Bee I might take the chest off that paint it up nicely and replace the slightly eaten chest..

    Anyway.. Just wanted to share!
    Sorry for the bad pic quality, just snapped an image to send a friend yesterday night.

    I love the shade. Painting this mold is one of my favorite things about this hobby.

    Man that is awesome. Makes me wish I knew what happened to my Throttlebot Goldbug.

    That's a shame about the chest, but you did some real nice work!

    Looks good but the paint seems to be a little thick.

    Paint is not even remotely thick except for the chest which got eaten by the primer.
