Optimus getting near done

I’ve had other things on but here is where I got to before being distracted:


My only bug bear with the kit (apart from forcing bits together) is the sprue marks. Thankfully I’m doing a battle damaged Optimus! In the meanwhile, I’ve sprayed Bumbleebee with Tamiya spray can gloss. The first coast wasn’t very glossy but hopefully the second coat will help:

I’m thinking of lighting his eyes and headlights. This is the size of 3mm LEDs and the hole they have to fit in. I’m sure they will fit…
