Hey Everyone!

DOTM Bumblebee has been one of my favorite figures for a long time now. And while the figure itself is great, it is missing some paint apps that have been bugging me. I always figured it would be difficult to find yellow paint to match the figure, but it turns out that Testor's flat yellow works great! For the gray areas of the body I used flat gunmetal with some silver paint mixed in and then dry-brushed silver over it later. There's not much difference in vehicle mode and it might be a bit sloppy in some places, but overall I'm really happy with it! This was my first semi-extensive repaint of a figure, so if you have any advice, critiques, or anything, let me know!

All paint apps made:
- Flat yellow on chest, arms, hands, and spoiler
- Flat gunmetal/silver on all gray plastic, sides of the legs, feet, hands, forearm shields, and the back of the wheel pieces behind the shoulders
- Black paint pen used on shoulder armor, forearm shields, and various details in alt. mode
- Silver paint pen used for various alt. mode details
- Light blue paint pen used for eyes
- Metallic silver used for Mechtech weapon and drybrushing details
- Metallic blue used for Mechtech scope
- Dark gray wash used on Mechtech weapon, face, and "ear" pieces
- Gloss tangerine used for Mechtech barrel effect
- Flat black used for stripe continuation in alt. mode

In hindsight I've realized that I need to paint the rear view mirrors black, I'll have to do it next time I'm home :HEADHURTS:

I can't really tell from the photos but from what I can see, that looks good! Very clean, smooth paintwork. Not so keen on the drybrushing but I don't really like drybrushing on Transformers full stop, and yours is at least done quite cleanly.
