    So I saw D-Unit's custom Wheeljack about a month back and thought I'd give it a shot making my own! Then the UK weather conspired against me and it's only just held up long enough for me to be able to spray paint outside again, haha.

    Basic body is Universe Sunstreaker. Head is from Energon Downshift, slightly modified so it's able to work with the automorph. Shoulder cannon is made from a Classics Ramjet weapon.

    The whole thing pretty much was sprayed with Citadel Colour Skull White spray. It was then given a thin extra coat of "normal" Skull White - other colours used (all Citadel) were Chaos Black, Blood Red, Enchanted Blue and Boltgun Metal.

    The decals were Reprolabels for G1 Wheeljack, slightly cut in some places to fit :) 

    As always, C&C is welcome!

    very nice job. but, i think you should have filled in the grooves on the roof, it would make a huge difference.

    Great work man! I'm gonna have to do this one for sure. I just hope I can start with a Classics Red Alert if they ever release one. Got a few extra Sunstreakers just in case they don't though.

    I like how you left the blue on the legs to match his eyes. Decals are great, not too much and not too little

    Very good, very crisp and clean... and I actually think Sunstreaker makes a better Wheeljack than he does Sunstreaker

    Thanks for the kind words guys!!

    Thanks to Thyvipera's Wheeljack I'm going to see if I can incorporate some wings into it somehow :D 

    Cheers dude, c&c always appreciated, especially from someone of your stature! I did consider filling in the grooves but decided not to - I actually quite like the way it looks :)

    Very nice work.
    It seems like Wheeljack is the new Punch/Counterpunch:lol 
    This is definitely one of the finest ive seen.
