Painting the eyes of Takara Tomy MP-10 Convoy



In my review of this Takara Tomy Transformers MP-10 Convoy last time, I did mentioned that it would be better if the eyes comes with a much lighter blue color - you can check out the review from the link below;

Thus recently I decided to do a simple quick and fun project - painting the eyes of this Convoy, so this is it now;



First thing first, you need to removed the 2 screws from the back of the head;



Its not really difficult though, just a bit of this and that, something like when you do that Gundam model kits and after a while you should be able to see all these and then you need to pick up the eyes part;




Yup this is the one;



I just go for a cheap solution and thus I use this cheap metal acrylic spray paint;



I did the spray works, doesn't take long for such a small parts and this is the final result - The Optimus Prime or the Convoy now looks pretty much "alive";




A little bit of outdoor photoshot outside the house;



It's a simple but important touch up especially if you really want your Convoy's eyes to be in that color - it's all about personal taste but if you think McDonald's Big Mac Burger is better than any of those from Burger King then I guess you should have no problem to proceed with this little touch up...
