    You knew it was coming...and i just couldnt let him stay red. So i slapped him with those bright colors from the 86 movie.
    The pix i took dont do the colors justice, the fluorescent orange stands out bright and punches u in the eye. The Neon magenta is layered over a violet to tame the color a bit. The dullcote keeps the colors in check.
    His wings are sharpened n angled, so they dont look dull. And again the chin is sanded down a bit. I went ahead n painted his backpack orange like the toon. He's for display along with my Rodimus, so didnt care for the whole transforming to car mode. I have a xtra that im goin to keep in car mode, he'll be headin into the paint booth soon.
    All that is left is just a few paint apps and some touch ups.:thumbs2:

    I like how you made his chin shorter to give him a younger appearance.

    I've been checking many times a day for this update! Looks awesome, though it's slightly more pink than I would have gone for. Can't wait to see him done and pictured next to the old guy ;)

    God do I wish I had the time to do this to mine. That's exactly what I wanted MP Hot Rod to look like.
