-Transformer Classics (Hasbro version) "Bumblebee"
-3rd Party Beelzeboss "Growing Pains" Custom Kit (head + guns).
I used Aves apoxie sculpt to redo the bumper, headlights (Q.C issue on the original - jagged edge/misaligned), roof and back half to remove the spoiler and chest tech. Also added magnets in place of the rotating screw-peg on each forearm. Added styrene piece on the front of his thighs + aves resculpt to help differentiate him further from the stock Bumblebee mold. I replaced the wheels using WFC Optimus wheels (reattached with cold-heat soldering tool + resculpted hubcaps). Windshield (inside and out) was overlaid with a piece of thin styrene, cut from a pattern created using masking tape. The original windshield's surface suffered a mishap (FYI: Krylon black paint + Mr. Sprays sealant react very badly!), so this was the only real solution without scraping a 99% complete figure. The end result turned out really well despite this setback.
The original figure was disassembled and painted with Testor Gold spray. The rest was brush work using Mr. Hobby lacquer paint (thinned with leveling thinner) for the blues, blacks, and silvers. Sealed with Mr. Spray Gloss Super Clear UV cut sealant. Large/very flat metallic autobot sticker came from a KO Takara sticker sheet I recieved from (the now defunct) KOTOYS site years back. They're very thin, and have less edge height vs. some Reprolabel metallic stickers.
