    First one I worked on and finished is Megatron based on this design:
    [​IMG]
    First I disassembled him and air-brushed his bright grey plastic with gunmetal grey.
    progress 1.jpg progress 2.jpg progress 3.jpg
    I noticed that the parts on the back of his upper arms didin't sit flush.
    progress 4.jpg progress 5.jpg
    So I disassembled the upper arms and drilled cavities into the underside of the parts with a dremel.
    progress 6.jpg progress 7.jpg
    That's the only thing I modded on Megs.

    And here's the gallery of the finished version. I applied the Reprolables set for him, added a lot of details and drybrushed and black washed him.

    Robot mode:

    Glowing/Charging cannon effect:

    Tank mode:

    UPDATE: I will add pictures under UV-light, with his Mini-Con partner and with effect parts (as soon as I have Cyberverse Deluxe Megatron).

    Nice work on the weathering and the detailing.

    Hm...
    Maybe if you swapped the head with the Selects Combat Hero Megs, that'd tie this all together.

    Thank you very much, guys!
    I am looking forward to complete the miners and show 'em in here to get your feedback.
    Maybe yes, but I'm not gonna get that figure only for its head and I didn't want to repaint the whole thing. I'm pretty satisfied with the result. The stickers work wonders combined with the paintjob. To me he's miner Megatron now.

    That's beautiful. I love the purple in the cannon and sword. Great work, I love it.

    Thanks a lot, man!
    I am pretty proud of those. I contrived how to do them myself and tried it for the first time on this figure. From now on I'll always make these glowing effects like that (until I find an even better way to do them :D ).

    I'm happy to see how much you enjoy it.

    Coming soon ;) 
    Hey, just grab one and start to slap paint on it. It's not that difficult. Just watch a tutorial or two for the techniques. That's how I started with customizing and everybody has to start somewhere. ;)

    May have to create a different way to connect the drill because having it on the cannon...looks awkward. Good attempt though.

    I know but the H-tank design of his alt mode is not meant to be a drill-tank. So you'd need a completely different mold.

    Maybe shape ways has something that can be a substitute? I'm thinking crafting something to look like this would be relatively easy considering its shape. Just an idea since a cannon drill would be an issue.

    You mean to make it attachable at the front/hood of the tank between the front hover engines?
    And then peg in the drill Arms Micron?
