Welcome to the new Unicron.com Alterations Blog! Although some people call them "kitbashes" or "customs,” we prefer “Alterations” because it takes more than just paint or a model kit to produce these works of art! With all the functionality that Blogger has to offer, we now provide a totally interactive database where posts can be viewed, commented upon and organized based on series, artist, character, or your own unique search criteria! (Check out the nav bar for suggestions.) To post comments, sign in with your valid ID from Google, Blogger, AIM, LiveJournal, WordPress, or TypePad.

For you artists out there, showing off your work is now easier than ever. Simply e-mail digital photos to: obsidian@unicron.com. We'll get them uploaded and linked as promptly as we can. Thanks for visiting and for all your contributions!

How to: Fix or Paint Metallic Parts

Has your Transmetal chipped? Are your G1 vacuum metalized parts warn down past the coating? Are you just not willing to accept that your "silver" (light gray) plastic is as shiny as it it should be? Well, never fear because Transformers Movie Megatron and Jazz feel your pain. We may not be able to electroplate metal onto your toys, but we're pretty sure we've found the next best thing. Alclad makes an incredible line of metallic Lacquers that'll get the job done. Check out their website for more information.

Thanks to frenzy.rumble for the heads up and the sample picture of his work using Aclad on Movie Jazz.
