    Hello Fellow Radicons!

    I'm back again to show off one that I'm really happy with!

    Here's Dark of the Moon Jolt painted up how he should look! I've re-sculpted a more concept art accurate head and even added his electro-whips! He's pretty much re-painted all over.

    I'm looking forward to getting an airbrush in the next few months so future work on the car paint will be super smooth.

    Thanks for looking!

    I know, alot of people didn't seem to like this version when it came out. Now that the Lost Age version is out the more accurate colors help. That's what I wanted to do - bring a little life into this under-appreciated mold.

    This could really use a few more layers of paint. Especially the blue. I like the idea though.

    I agree it could use another layer of blue- unless you're going for a battle weathered look :) 

    But very nice job on all the metal interior parts! Certainly makes this toy look better.

    This is indeed the superior Jolt mould, I really like the electro whips.

    The paint though, leaves something to be desired, especially the blue on the car parts. Your metalwork looks fine, but the blue looks sloppily and thickly applied. Remember, thin your paints, and apply multiple thin layers. It looks like using enamels? If so make sure you give each coat a good amount of time to cure between each layer. Keep it up though, and good luck with the airbrush.

    I love those coils man! Where are they from?

    The design is pretty cool too.
