    We’re all trapped inside. Time to start doing all those customs we swore we’d get around to one day.

    so I turned this:

    Into this:

    Looks very cool :thumbs2: 
    The eggshell white isn't G1 I think but suits him amazingly. Is it on purpose that the lightpiping is still bleeding through the paintjob on the cannon?
    And alt mode pics, PLEASE!

    Ah, you noticed. ;) 

    The translucent paint defied my every effort to brush paint onto it. So you’re looking at it after I sanded off everything. My attempt, and a good amount of the original coverage.

    if you look out the window, you’ll see it was raining. Once it dries up a bit I’m going to take the cannon outside and resolve this with some black Krylon spray.

    But until then? I was impatient to share. Also haven’t done alt mode yet because it needs to fully dry so I can seal it. So look out for those in a future update.

    Impressive work!
    I actually like a little of the clear purple showing through.

    This looks very good. I like the choice of eggshell white over the standard G1 gray.

    Nice!
    The original black paintjob was great imo cuz it was a different take on a classic character. But seeing him in traditional megatron colors looks really great! And I agree with yaujta-the purple bleeding thru looks pretty good. Like you can see the Energon flowing thru him

    Believe it or not, it’s Tamiya XF-14 - JA Grey. I’d say it looks less beige/eggshell in different light, but only barely.

    In the pictures you took it looks like a bone white. I really like that.
    Maybe we'll see the difference when you upload updated pictures.

    Sweet. The jet mode looks really cool like that. Kinda like bone white armor plating over the black parts
