    My version of G1 "enhanced" evasion mode OP. Tamiya acrylics and and blue clear, and a head stolen from FE voyager prime. Debating on whether to paint the shoulders red, but I'm happy with this for now. My fav OP toy at the moment.

    Nice. I just started painting mine (my first time repainting a Transformer). Sadly, I don't have a head to swipe, so I'm trying to make a face plate, as well. I may steal a couple of these ideas, though.

    Great job! The FE head suits the mold well

    Looks great. Any tips on how you painted the silver on the wheels so well?

    Very nice. Personally, I would go ahead and paint the shoulders red since very few people have done it so far. I love the use of FE Prime's head on this mold, did you have to do any serious modding or does it fit on the joint without any difficulty?

    Tiny brush, lots of patience, and a blade scrape off mistakes :) 

    No mods needed, other than taking heads apart to make ball socket more accessible. Socket is same size, maybe a bit more snug with the FE Prime head.

    wow, looks better than most of the paintjobs that go for either a movie robot mode accuracy, or a g1 deco, this is a very well done paint deco, excellent choices!

    Dude, looks very nice. Wish I could upload pics of my Evasion Optimus, but I have no access to a computer to do it, just my phone :-( Very nice job!
