    WIP. Trimmed some plastic off and painted the "engine" to mimic his actual powermaster. Gave it a white waist, painted the neck silver, and add clear red eyes inside of his helmet. I'll paint the rest of the bits red that he's missing in bot mode and eventually replace the Orion face. Sorry about the flash.

    Looks good. I would paint those chrome screws/rivets to match color around them. Habit of mine to do since they really don't have screws. In the show or comic anyway.

    Do you mean on the hands? That will be included in parts that should be red.

    Awesome job! I recommend painting the truck cab bumper chrome/silver.

    I thought about that but I feel like it will be too much silver.

    Looking good. The small touches really do a lot for the figure.

    That does help break up some of the bland color scheme. Good work

    Yeah. The hands. I tend to color match screws. Hate that sore eye look.

    Looks great! What did you use for the eyes? I plan to do a layered look with a styrene sheet to make eye sockets, and then put the red behind it.

    Added a little more paint. A little red makes a big difference. I am still uncertain about painting the bumper silver.
