    Howdy fellow Radicon's

    Upon the great Lupis Convoy's request ( He saw these i person last week), I'm putting up some pics of my Classics Stunticon's. Today I'll be showcasing Dead End and Breakdown. Also along for the photoshoot is fellow stunticon SE Dragstrip.

    Dead End was made from RTS Jazz. I used Krylon Fusion Burgundy for the base. I didn't detail the grill or headlights it as to nod to the g1 dead end. Still have some detailing to do, but pretty much finished. Custom Photopaper Sticker decals made, faceplate is sheet styrene.

    Breakdown. This was fun. A fellow board member loaned me a botcon g2 breakdown head that i've casted ( working the bubbles/problems out..there are a few pics with the test head on it), but prior to this, I slightly modded red alert's head ( it actually looks kinda like the Animated breakdown's head) to give him a dirtbike/offroad helmet feel. *update* added pics of the rough casted botcon head.

    Updated: Added more pics, and a little teaser groupshot with the almost complete WildRider. ( Nemesis prime is the stand in for Motormaster right now...but that's a scratch build i'm planning on.)

    Now you just need Windcharger to make into Wildrider and you'll be set.

    Haha, cats and kids, great for random disasters :) 
    BTW being a scout, wouldn't windcharger be too small vs the others being deluxe?

    Both are great. The Jazz mold really works as Dead End.

    Oh god that would have been amazing. I think you'll like tracks though. He fits and in alt mode really works as a combiner limb.

    In person Wildrider from Tracks works quite well IMO. But your Breakdown is just beautiful!

    You stole my idea for Jazz into Dead End! On the other hand, I'm almost done with my Tracks into Wildrider, so we're evened out.

    Did you paint Dead End, is it dyed or what? And I'd like a Breakdown head too if you could cast another, I finished mine and he's sporting the pink Botcon version for now.

    Nice but I'd like to see better shots on WR's head. I really like the stripes on WR too, very clean

    I was wondering when we'd start seeing the Jazz mold show up in Radicons beyond the plethora of actual Jazz touch up customs

    I'd like to know if it's dyed too. I hope that dye takes well to this mold.

    It would fit the "Masquerade" theme. At least the size difference wouldn't be as bad as those molds in G1.

    These look great, man :thumb 

    As for WC, he's too small for Wildrider. Wildrider certainly needs to be a deluxe.

    Then again, so does Windcharger :lol

    Maybe...I only say this because I'd like to do that one as a 3 piece mold to retain light piping, and I haven't quite gotten that good at casting yet.
