    Hello people,

    Just poking my head in here because of the healthy kitbashing community. I'll be picking your brains for ideas at some point, but these are what I've done so far. Enjoy!

    Alt. Soundwave

    (I followed Pun-3x over here. Blame him.)

    that soundwave is nearly spot-on with lazerbeak's ancient digibash.. the only real detail missing is placing a G1 Soundwave battery on his shoulder. nice job :)

    The paint scheme works for Tigatron, but I think i'm just too spoiled from the awsome job Botcon did on thiers to appreciate it. Soundwave on the other hand is the very definition of GLORIOUS!

    Thanks guys.

    When I do an Alt. repaint, I primarily look for similarities in body shape and head designs. When I start to paint, I touch up the parts that are the same on the original as they are on the car - i.e., Soundwave still has red knees (tail lights versus stickers), the gold chest (tape deck versus grill), etc. Lyrical nods, if you will.

    It leaves me pretty limited sometimes as to what characters I can pull off, but what I've done so far has worked out pretty well.

    Currently in the tedium of hand-painting a Skids into Ironhide. At the rate I'm going, I'll be finished between now and the holidays.

    Cool stuff. I like how you made the stunticon limbs all Vipers, and Motormaster into a DodgeRam. And great work on soundwave. The head looks like it definitely belongs on it. You can't really tell its grimlock's head.
