    I did this with credit and inspiration to member NewtypeS3.

    As per my usual method,Decanted Rust-o-leum Semi-Gloss black enamel basecoat laid down over the entire figure after a Isopropyl paint removal scrub then warm dishsoap wash down. Laid down a light reverse preshade acrylic white to give the grey and orange some more color depth. Then gave the figure a tamiya chrome silver drybrush. I then came up with a simple racecar paint scheme with he red and white given black stripes to better accent the colors. I drilled some holes in his quarters panels just before the rear wheels and made some exhaust pipes.. Had to get a 2nd POTP Jazz just for the weapon and drilled some holes so when he is in bot mode the Triggerbot form looked more prominent. I had to trim down the weapon grips then JB welded them into place after the paint job was completed. Matte finish clear coated and completed this one in just a weeks time. Made my first video for this guy too.


    He will be up for sale on eBay later today

    That is AWESOME. I just love what you did here. What's even more amazing is that the front bonnet didn't fall appart on you, being one big transparent piece. I've had 2 break on me now.
