    finished this one about a week ago,
    my take on movie Smokescreen.

    tweaks:
    - added a spoiler
    - more neck articulation

    color palette are the basic Smokescreen G1 colors and a combination of matte & glossy finish, decals and washes

    I'm interested to know what you think about this repaint.

    The car mold suits him VERY well! You did a great-job! Personally I only aprove of lens-heads on Go-Bots and Shock(wave)-Troops, but this thing is beautiful!

    I KNEW this mold would look spectacular if you just added a spoiler! Just out of curiosity, where did that spoiler come from? I may have to do this to Burnout with that spare Salvage spoiler I've got laying around somewhere...

    Spoiler-spasam aside, the new Smokescren STILL looks fabulous! I like how you modernized the numbers yet kept the colors the same. I'd also like to know how you added that neck articulation.

    spoiler and stuff

    this spoiler is originally from Salvage,
    [​IMG]

    the neck articulation is a very basic popular tweak, pop off his head and cut away some plastic around the neck joint , allowing the face to move forward and backward.
    I also cut away some plastic on the bottom of his head otherwise he can't turn his head left - right (or you can get alonger neck joint.

    the number is supposed to be like that (skewed)

    Great work; I really like the addition of the rear wing. I noticed that its on his back in robot mode; safe to say this is a partial parts-former?

    I'll be damned, I just so happen to HAVE a Salvage spoiler laying around! I'd love it if you told me how to add the spoiler onto the figure, as I've always wanted to give my Burnout a spoiler!

    I'll also have to do those neck mods as well! Thanks for explaining it to us!

    Excellent job!

    Well it looks fantastic. Except I think you should have given him a different head but that is just a very small problem because it does'nt take away from it.

    Dude, you turned that:

    into that!!!! :

    I didn't even recognize him. I've always blown this figure off as crap. Then I saw your 'repaint' and thought what awesome mold was this guy using.

    Night and fucking day, man.

    The only thing I don't dig about this custom is the head choice. That being said, I really love this custom. Honestly, with a few tweaks here and there to the mold (perhaps some Gundam hands and some sort of additional feet parts), I can see this custom as an Alternity style Smokescreen. I really think that would look cool too. :)  Personally, I love the "38"; I don't think it could be better. It's a little something old and a little something new . . . it's a LOT of cool :thumb
