    Keeping quiet in a tread is as almost as boring as watching paint dry...

    Ratchet's green is similar to G1 constructicon's green. You might wanna start there and maybe add a metal flake clear or something.

    well, almost.. the ratchet green is just a hint more to the yellow side of things. I might have found the correct paintcode trough. I am awaiting the paint as we speak.. Sorry it takes so long, I just want to get it right

    No need to apologize. You're doing great things here. Your scaled collection is something to be proud of.

    I hope you're testing the paint on a spoon or something.

    image.jpg Just a small Update.. the paint is in!
    It is just a testshoot but I am kinda liking this shade of green.. ill add a pearl glosscoat over it once the decals are in and he is done.
