    !!!!!!OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS!!!!!!!!
    Here is a previously commissioned piece made for an awesome customer, Mr. Payton34 himself. It was my first custom, my version of a Masterpiece Sideswipe made from a Masterpiece Starscream, Gundam parts, G1 Sideswipe parts, custom crafted transformation mechanisms and accesories and a 1/24 scale Lamborghini Countach LP500s model. His eyes, gun and Jet-pack are lit with l.e.d.s as well as blaster sounds all packaged neatly in the pack. He has a working missile launcher, hand made G1 style gun and much more. Just felt like bringing back an oldie but a goodie.

    Thanks. Yeah, like I said just felt like bringing back an old mod. I had a son who died last year and kind of shut down and put things on hold for a minute. But hey New year, New life! Ya know?

    God I am so sorry for your loss.

    I know you are thinking of him with every custom you build, and that memory lives on through your work, making every single piece of art have a little bit of your son's spirit in it. They are that much more special. Amazing work.

    Man, this is an awesome custom, as soon as finances settle down, I think Im gonna try my hand at kitbashing.

    My uncle is a toy collector. He said in order to enjoy this hobby, you always have to keep the spirit of a child within you. Remember him and keep him within your soul, and your art will always bring happiness and joy to others.

    Well I guess that's something that should be easy to do because according to my girlfriend I am a perpetual child, lol. Jk, she actually is very supportive of my doing this.

    VERY nice. Old custom, new custom, whatever. All that matters is how it looks.

    TFC, you do amazing work, but I'm also thrilled to read how you're carrying yourself as a person and an artist. I can't begin to imagine what you and your family have went through, but I'm certainly glad to hear that you're trying to see the optimistic side of things. Words cannot express my condolences to you and your family. Just remember that I'm only a pm away.

    In the meantime, thank you so much for sharing your life and your work here in Radicons. We are better because of it all, and the same to each of the rest of you. :thumb
