Would anyone know of a good place to find mini LED kits? I am new with LED's but I would like to try and light up one of my TF's guns.

Thanks >:oP

Is there anyone who can tell me what scale is Classics Voyager Ultra Magnus/Optimus Prime? I'm looking for model car carriers that would make a suitable trailer/battle armor for him.

To paint large areas I use a Testors airbrush. I use the kind that sprays the paint directly from the bottle with the use of a special cap rather than the kind where the paint is sucked into the tip of a nozzle and then forced out of a hard to clean tip. For areas that are too small to paint with my inaccurate airbrush, I use Testors paint brushes. After the bristles get damaged I pick up a new set.


omg dude I know your post is epic old but know it is still making people around the world happy and helping them!!!! I checked out the website you mentioned and holy crap! Their prices. I've been doing it wrong all along LOL! I'm gonna save tons of money (or drop tons of it, depending on how you look at it) at this website. THANK YOU!

Ahoy there, UK user new to repaints here looking for some advice.

In short: is there an equivalent to Krylon fusion available in england?

So, a little more info. There are no asda stores in travelling distance, so I picked up that asda/wal-mart exclusive bumblebee and strafe pack from ebay. Payment went through, error code, tried again... aaand of course got two confirmation emails. Rather than navigating the ebay/paypal order cancellation/refund minefield, I figured I'd repaint the duplicates (I've got strafe's new deco sorta figured out, haven't decided on Bee's new look yet).

I've been looking through a few tutorials, and krylon fusion is recommended for hasbro plastic. Trouble is, I can't seem to get hold of that over here. Anyone know of an alternative?

Thanks!

Hi, fellow Brit here, I used to use Plastikote for my customs, but found is wasn't durable enough for Transformers, also the clearcoat is prone to yellowing. I have recently changed to Hycote car paints, they cost the same as Plastikote but come in bigger cans, also due to them being car paint there great for colour matching to HasTak plastics. I have replaced the crappy Hasbro paint jobs on Universe Prowl, Ironhide and ROTF Superion with Hycote paints and they look great and are really durable too, hope this helps.

I did make a post on my issue and I don't know where else I can ask, but I'm looking for a video showing how to do the original mp starscream mod that puts the back wing panels on the legs, due to my mp skywarp's brock off...
