    I've always prefered the way UW Motormaster looks over the CW version. About a month ago I painted my CW MM's legs black since they are completely visible when combined. Today I finally decided paint the rest of him.

    It's not completely finished, got some touch ups that need done. But this is the basic finished product. Pretty much everything that was grey is now black. I'll post some better pictures and walk through all the things I painted a little bit later.

    Cool. I was just revisiting mine recently and thinking of how the UW version looks so much better in truck mode

    That looks awesome! Didnt manage to get Menasor, due to the poor uk distribution but fingers crossed on ebay sometime.

    What are the shoulder pods? Were they part of Motormaster? Or an add on?

    I believe they are the Perfect Effect Menasor Upgrade kits

    This is as good as it gets unless I want to try and disassemble Motormaster and protect all the painted parts with clear-coat (spoiler - I don't. Don't have the skill or patience for that). Essentially everything that was flat gray got painted black. I added the silver and purple to the legs, the rest of the purple was already there. the only things I left unpainted were any parts silver, purple, the head and hands and the smokestacks. I also added silver to the rims on his wheels.

    There are some areas (mostly hinges) that will always chip.

    And I still have some areas that need cleaned up.

    But I still think it turned out just fine for what I wanted.

    Now my Menasor is just one $80 Dead End away from being perfect.
