    Hello everyone,

    I decided to rework Hotrod a little cause he was quite the mess.
    His chest was wrong, he was to tall to place with the Studioseries bots.

    so I took him apart, fitted a (shorter) Lockdown chest piece, trimmed his feet down to look more acurate, rearanged his midsection placed his chest on a balljoint so they can now rotate the right way in botmode and reworked (trimmed down) the rear bumper part to het his carmode more acurate as well..
    Oh, and of course gave him the proper Orange trim and a clearcoat

    Enough said, here are some pictures:

    and here he is finished and with my other bots. BD0437A0-2350-4785-BC9E-43D92E070DE2.jpeg BD9E817D-D7AC-48E5-82FF-4A1109D18C36.jpeg 8AF025AF-A27B-4891-923D-CA701575B966.jpeg 0220EBF7-C78D-44CF-A6BF-B50890912C8B.jpeg
    His carmode is to big to fit with my other bots, so I am considering selling him.

    He is quite stunning trough.

    I still am tempted to do so, his botmode scales fine now, but his carmode is just a little to big and usually that bugs me a lot.

    Thank you, it is mostly a clearcoat and the right shade of orange, bit the shine adds to the figure

    What paint did you use for the orange trim? I've been looking everywhere for that color. And does it come in a spray variant

    It is Tamiya LP-51, with a coat of gloss pearl (ts-65) over it and then cleared, I have no idea if there is a spray, this is just from a jar

    I used gunmetal grey, black and flat black and orange. The Centenario is unpainted carbon, black flatblack roof and pinstriping with some panels in color.
