    I'm finally finished with my MP scale Brutiucs project. I bought the kit from Ramsessiden close to 1 year ago. Then I went back to revisit the G1 cartoon image and decided to repaint Brawl and Swindel along with some parts closer to G1. I restarted the project 4 weeks back from applying paint apps to sanding some parts down a little more for an easier fit. Today, I am done, or at least I think I am, LOL!! I think he turned out awesome. The upgrade kit from Ramsessiden is second to none. I also mentioned to him that it would be an awesome idea if he would make the 3 failsafe buttons like in the cartoon. He did me a solid and included it my kit. I think it's the best out there and really works for the combination of Zeta and UT Combaticons. Here are some pics with UT Bruticus and Toy World Devastator. Thanks for checking it out, and thanks Ramsessiden for everything you have done and for providing great advise and input on this project!!! If you all get a chance, pick up a kit. You'll love it!!

    I airbrushed using Tamiya and Minitaire paintes. Mostly Tamiya. I mixed some colors to get as close as I could to the G1 color scheme for some figures and Bruticus's parts.

    Thanks good to know. Unfortunately I don’t have an airbrush. Are there anything spray paints you’d recommend that could achieve a similar result?

    Thanks!! I it took me a while to complete, due to the kit being imported from Peru and then mixing the colors to get as close as I could to G1 accuracy.

    I used to use Tamiya spray paint. I highly recommend them, since they tend to go on smoother and don't take that long to dry. However, you still need to coat in thin layers at a time if not the paint will cake. I also recommend their Primer. I think it's second to none. Great stuff. I strongly recommend to keep away from Krylon and Testor paints and spray. Krylon They're is good for garden chairs and things like that, but for hobby stuff... the absolute worse. As for Testors, I would have to apply them in super thin layers and some would still cake and take a long time to dry.

    The only store I found that has it is amazon and they don’t ship to where I live. Are there any other brands I could use?

    Mr. Hobby paints are also good and similar to Tamiya. They sell Tamiya paints on Ebay as well. That's where I usually get mine from, since they don't sell where I live.

    I had to mix yellow, green and white in small amounts at a time to get the correct color of green for Devastator.
