    That is some beautiful paint. I can't say anything else that hasn't already been said.

    bad ass.....the only thing I don't like is the black on the front,
    I would have painted it blue like the rest of the car, except for the
    grille itself.

    otherwise great paint job and colors, I want to do this myself and have
    since Prowl first came out, but I had other projects I was doing and never
    got to do so, if they re-release this mold the hell yes I will.

    anyway, looks good!!

    Thanks everyone!

    And thank you! :) 

    I thought about that too. What ultimately cemented my mind to paint it black was so that it would follow the same pattern as Prowl, Silverstreak, and Smokescreen. And also, the G1 figures did indeed have a black bumper as well, it was just much smaller in comparison.

    Your right, gorgeous is the only way to describe it. That blue is beautiful on the figure. And the other paints add a stunning contrast.

    Holy crap, I want this! :lol

    Well I say that too, because I never liked the black on Smokescreen's Universe
    toy, Prowl always was all black on the bottom, both SS and Bluestreak to me
    were far from G1 Accurate, so I did my customs of both, and I know about the
    280 Z's bumpers, I just see this mold as what it is, a modern version based on
    the 350 Z, that has no bumpers...as cars used to that is, just a grille section.

    Never to say that your interpretation is bad or wrong though, because the rest
    of the paint looks awesome, and smooth.

    Every time I come look at customs on Radicons, I get inspired. This is like SUPER INSPIRATION. I have to learn to repaint toys like you, man. Gosh, this is so fantastic.
