    So I’ve decided that I’m going to send it on my idea to make the inner Magnus Rid Scourge/ Nemesis Prime while the outer armor will make up SG Ultra Magnus. I have a feeeling that UM will be rereleased in the SG line but I bet they will use the siege mold so if that’s the case I’ll have SG Magnus + a nemesis Prime which works for me. S/o @SlickPrime for designing the sweet headsculpt! Just waiting for the bot to come in then I’ll get working to finish him up!

    I have learned my lesson for being impatient I should’ve sanded down the ball joint a bit but I rushed it and used too much force, the back crack off and there a crack right down the face but I suppose it adds character :rip

    Not trying to hijack things, but since you're posting the head, my take on an SG Ultra Magnus can be found here. Heavy/Scratch: - Siege SG Ultra Magnus

    I’ll be getting the red spray today so I planned to do some tests on pieces that are made of similar blue transparent plastic. First test is on the visor from Magnus’s head and the second will be on that blue Er ramp former. Also just some update pics most of the changes in color will be on the rest of the armor pieces on the donor. The windows got a cool textured effect and I like it! Unfortunately before I ckearcoted I wasn’t ave to get rid of that one spec on the windows it seems to be inside the plastic it couldn’t be removed from either side:(

    I guess the textured effect is from a flat/mat or satin/semi-gloss clear coat. It looks nice but will make it harder to spot the matrix behind it. Especially after you've added another layer of red transparent paint.

    I wish it was, I took a pic over an led light but unless I can find one small enough to fit I don’t think it’ll be permanent but it does look amazing!

    Maybe use one of those tiny LEDs that are powered by induction.

    Yea, but what about the part where you will barely see the matrix?

    Well honestly I’m not sure, depending on how the red looks after the test dries will help determine if the matrix could be seen but with the clearcote already it might be too much. We will see tho. Also do you happen to know where I could get one of those leds?

    There are other options, too, but this one seems to be not as powerful.

    Hmmm still a potential option, but the space between the armor for the chest and the inner bot may not h big enough for an led but the inner bot chest cavity is, if the led is powerful enough it should work though right?

    So after I did some tests I found that this stuff is actually aweosme. It works better for lighter colors, the orange blast effect was completely red after 1 coat. Since the actual piece that’s getting painted is blue I ended up using the ramp master from ER cuz it’s similar in color. The pics of soundbarrier have 2 coats and without additional light it’s very very dark. If I could do the light mod it would fix the problem of it being too dark. I need to do more coats on the blue window piece but I’m impressed with how well it actually works. Also it says in the can it cannot be removed after it’s put on but imo not sure about that but who knows, they make multiple colors so I may but sum more for light piping color changes for a seeker!!
