    Hi everyone,

    I just came back from vacation Sunday afternoon, and I had all of the painted parts curing over the weekend and then applied the clearcoat Sunday night.

    I just need to do some brush work to the grill (chest) and work on the head. I am adding some additional styrene spots to be glued onto the forearms for both him and Inferno as well as to the body of the vehicle modes.

    In the meantime, enjoy!

    -Gregg

    That looks hella tight, but the Inferno head looks too small.

    man, you that when you go to click on a thread, and you already KNOW its going to be ass-kicking, and yet you still find your mouth open and mumbling that it is REALLY ass-kicking.

    Very nice. Love the yellow and black details. They really give him the right "construction vehicle" vibe while looking great against the orange at the same time.

    Inferno head is the original used for the ALT body.........for the paint on Grapple, it's a mix of orange Krylon fusion w/ a topcoat of Tamiya TS-12 Orange, followed by a Tamiya clearcoat spray.

    What did you use to make the stripes? I need to make some for another custom and need to find a good sticker paper to use.

    I designed them using CorelDRAW and had Delta @ Reprolabels make them. Contact him about purchasing a set.

    Is there a easy way to de plastic weld the Grapple/Inferno head or is it just a question of strategically applied force.
