    beat me to it. mine is hanging up curing at the moment. this guy is super easy to paint. i went with that chrome paint superquad7 has a thread about and brushed clear yellow over the bits i wanted gold, works great. what kind of paint did you use on the horns? i tried to RIT dye mine red but it just won't take to that rubber.

    Looking good; what are you planning to do to the dino head?
    And other question; is paint sticking to those soft rubber bits? My past experience has been that the softer the rubber the less effective any paint is at staying on it....

    I just used Testor's on the soft rubber bits guys...no problems with it coming off or anything.

    And yeah, for the Gold, I went with the gold chrome. I need to get some clear coat to make my chrome pop. I went with graphite metallic over the gold tail and face to get that G1 feel of the gold face and tail underneath that tinted grey plastic piece. ;) 

    I'm a stickler for making it a great throwback.
