    Hey everyone:

    I was inspired by the good work that you guys do. I decided to try my hand on a full on custom figure paint job. I chose the Wreck-Gar mold and decided to make my own unique character.

    Here is Oil Frame.

    For a second, I thought you used a SG Wreck-gar for the base...

    Really nice, clean paintjob, man.

    Used Testers Model Masters Acryl as well as the Model Masters Semi-gloss coat which I added some Acryl thinner so it wouldn't clog my air brush. Gives it that nice smooth even finish which I wasn't expecting.

    Also went crazy with masking bits and pieces so it wouldn't bleed through on certain areas. As well as trimming his Goatee and mustache sides so it gives the illusion of different facial hair.

    Oil Frame:

    "The Needs of the Innocent, will always be first"

    After watching hundreds of westerns and gun-slinging action films, Oil Frame decided to become that in which he loves, that lone gunman that fights for the innocent, the defenseless, the broken, but he tends to lose himself in the moment from time to time.

    He wields a pair of modified Cybertronian Rivet guns that resemble Earth's modern hand guns. Oil Frame is able perform tricks shots that find their mark due to his precise algorithms and trajectory calculations. A bot, many Decepticons avoid altogether, knowing there's no place they can hide that won't result in one of his shots finding them.

    You need to trim those handle bars. But really those look amazing.

    Nice paint job. I have a bunch of Junkions in the works but I have not yet dared to paint the biceps. How does the paint hold up there? It seems like such a weird surface to paint on.

    Thanks, it's a funky plastic for sure. The paint tended to come off easily.Took a few coats to get a nice layer on there. Afterwards I did a few layers of the semi gloss. Let it dry for a day a so, just for my own worry.

    I figured that would be tough. Is the paint on the biceps holding up to transformation and handling or are you trying not to touch this custom too much?

    It's holding up well. Transformed him a few time for different photos, had no breakage or flaking. Acryl paints are pretty resilient and the layers of the semi gloss will hopefully prevent any issues.

    It's definitely a clean paint job.I like the original Bio,too.Good idea.The only thing I think that you maybe should've done differently is paint the wheel rims to match.It looks off to me that way.Just a nitpick.

    Thanx for the props and the critiques. Yea, this was my first full custom paint and took it easy on painting everything. Didn't know how to really handle the rims to do it justice.

    Thanx for the kudos on this guy.
