    This is a blast from the past. Since I got a junker TFCC Runamuck and restored it I really wanted a Runabout (eh Overrun) to go with it. So I gathered some left over parts from CHUG Wheeljack/Tracks and painted my own.

    There is really not much to say about this since it is a straight forward repaint. I chose the front bumper from Tracks without the splitter and also the rear deck without the wings to distinguish Runabout from his crazier brother. The black is Tamiya spray enamel TS-29 (semi-gloss black). Wearing respirator and did it outdoors :)  touch ups and red strips are Tamiya acrylics. I also spray painted the inside of the roof with Tamiya clear red and that really looked "stock".

    If you noticed that the color of his face changed through the pictures - that's because I realized the silver looked aweful and applied a layer of gunmetal gray mid-way through the photoshoot.

    He looks great, nicely done! Can't go wrong with TS-29's finish.
