    The only other thing I am going to add to him is red striping. After I finish that, I'll reshoot the gallery (I intend to reshoot all of my galleries and add more, eventually). Enjoy!

    It looks good. And I like the fact that you didn't use Alt. Ravage for it. Not that using Alt Ravage is bad, but yours just seems to suit the character better IMO.

    The use of Cybertron Runabout's head makes him very distinctive.

    Hey guys, thanks for the kind comments! I appreciate all of your constructive critisim of this custom and my work always! I'm still "getting to know" my camara, and I hope with some practice that I'll eventually be taking some rad pics! I still plan to redo all of my galleries and shoot more; I just have a lot on my plate.

    I've read numerous different ways to accomplish this, but the method that works best with my customizing methods is using Testors Contour Putty in conjunction with Superglue as a drying agent. The reason this method works well with me is that I do so much sanding anyways and eventually things are filed down to a good smooth point. :thumbs2:

    Looks good! The face seems a little dark though, maybe painting it gray would help?

    Thanks for the constructive crit! Much appreciated! It's the photograph; my photos didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped. The head was gray before I painted it black though. I wanted the head dark black. :D

    Looks very good, though I always thought the Viper mold fit the battle charger's transformation better. :D

    Well, I can't take credit for making a totally new head sculpt; I used the head from Cybertron Runamuck for him. . . . and I have an extra for his cohort in crime (of whom I will create later in the future sometime). :ev:
