    Indeed, very nice paint job. I agree with Empchild in that the bionic arm looks a little longer than the normal one but hey, it's bionic right? Also, nice work on the logo.

    I agree on all points. If I were in your place, I'd highlight up to white and if you're not getting the depth you want, shade the crevices a bit to add more.

    I especially like the front end with the big gob on there. Did you just glue down the plasticard or heat and bend it first to get the smooth curve?
