    I've seen alot of Classics Megatrons customs. Can anyone recommend a good kind of gray paint that closely matches the gray plastic of the toy? It doesn't have to be perfect, but close? Thanks in advance.

    I used Testors acrylic flat camo gray, on mine. It's just a little bit darker than the plastic, but pretty close.

    Just buy a flat grey and a gloss white, or the other way around, and mix them until you hit the right shade.

    Yeah, I was gonna say...I see a few threads about people asking for the name of a color of paint. I never use paint straight out of a bottle. The only way to get the exact color you want is to mix it yourself. It's not like it's hard at all >_>

    I don't mean to sound like an asshole or anything but...c'mon. Don't be afraid to experiment. That's the only way you'll really learn.
