    Keeping with my G1 grimlock repaint theme, I got construct bots grimlock with some Tesco vouchers.......... I wasn't going to pay for it since I wasn't sure if it was any good. :) 

    I used silver appliance spray since it needs no basecoat or undercoat

    and plastokote blue and red for brushwork, since its durable enough

    I basically sprayed the clip on armour silver and gold accordingly

    then started on the chest piece with red

    waited for it to dry and sealed with lacquers

    then assembled

    as nice as it looked it wasn't g1 enough
    so I dismantled the upper arms from the torso and sprayed them up too.

    then painted the kneecaps

    That's a pretty big complement, but yeah buy him, hes awesome and has none of the fiddly rotation to transform that the first constructbots had.

    Alt mode pics being uploaded right now, forgot to add them.
