    I think this is one of the best Alternator customs I've seen.Its too bad that this figure wasnt made the way you did it because I think represents more of a "Generation 1 with a modern touch" look than the original Wheeljack Alternator figure.Keep on customizing!

    I've never been a big fan of the Viper Alt, but this is clearly the best application I've seen it put to. It fits Wheeljack amazingly well (much better than the Mustang).

    It inspires me. I have a spare Viper for kitbashing, but unfortunately it's the Sideswipe version, so no roof or spoiler. :(

    I used custom decal software made by Testors that I got from Walmart for about $10.00(not sure), then went online to thier website for an upgrade. Couple more dollars. The basic software doesn`t allow you to insert your own pics. That`s why I had to upgrade.

    In the kit you get the software, 2 sheets decal paper(white and clear), instructions, and decal clearcoat. Of the 2 sheets it comes with the all white sheet works best where as the all clear sheet isn`t worth shit because the ink comes out really dull, almost too translucent and rubs of more easily after application. Even when you clearcoat over the clear decal it tends to bleed. If anyone else out there has something better, please let me and everyone else know. Hope this helps.-WM
