Rough and Tumble Bumble Bee

Recommended Posts

My second Transformers build from the Flame Toys series.  Build time was roughly a week and is box stock.  Decided to not use the toy like stickers, sledge hammer, or the hybrid helicopter jetpack.

The weathered look is my interpretation of this character being based on a neglected VW Beetle, while showing signs of battle in robot form.  Not unlike the blockbuster movie a while back.

Used Alclad II Magnesium for the skeletal components, Vallejo and Tamiya acrylics for everything else.

Hope you enjoy!

Very cool!  Are you new to Vallejo acrylics or an old hat? Making the switch from enamels can be an issue for some car builders who are used to old ways.

Nicely weathered.

Thanks Bob.

Acrylics is my weapon of choice when weathering a model.  Can't say I have a preference for acrylic, enamel, or lacquer for "shinny" models.

Tend to stock up on Vallejo products specifically because its cheap and plentiful from my preferred vendor.  Has been easy to use and forgiving for my needs.
