    I already listed everything that I did in the OP then posted a photo of the resculpted raptor hands and tail tip before painting, plus listed the paint brands used. With that all explained, you can either sculpt small simple parts and paint things, or ya can't.

    Pretty sure I did say Testors and Tamiya in the comments, but maybe I answered that question somewhere else... At any rate-

    Question about Rattrap. What brand of grey paint did you use?

    @Unicron9 have you noticed any paint scuffing on the lower legs of your custom? I’m in the middle of customizing my Dinobot with some gundam markers, but I just want to be sure there’s enough clearance around those hinges to paint them up without worrying about it eventually rubbing off over time.

    I haven't but I have honestly only transformed him twice. I did lightly sand areas I thought might scrape though, including the leg hinges.

    You did an awesome job with the figure!!
    Are you repainting any other BW kingdom figures?
    That would be awesome to take a look at

    I've done several already, and working on Airazor right now.
    Hard to find time to do stuff for myself though with so many commissions piled up to do.

    I would love to see a tutorial. I'm trying to figure out how you painted it. Was it airbrush method? How did you tape off some areas?

    Awesome stuff! What sort of clay you used for the sculpting by the way?

    Cheers. I wonder if those bottom bits on his shins are bronze/copper? Unlikely its the same brown used for the stripes of the body right?

    Gotta admit I'm deathly curious how you got the bronze/gold paint on the "bones" of his legs so cleanly applied.

    I'd also be very deeply concerned about the paint getting scuffed as a result of transformation, similar to the stock paint on Kingdom Primal. How's it been holding up?
