    Here they come to save the day!!!

    These are repaints from the ROTF Aerialbots set, remakes of the Energon combiners. The customer wanted a G1 feel to the bots, but Darkcave style. I took a few liberties with the color schemes (Fireflight is brown...I know...but I like it :thumb ) and then panel lines them. I like the cartoony look.

    The weapons are all from the very cool (I'm serious) Fansproject Aerialbots Appendage Kit, that you can now but by selling your soul and first born, on eBay (J/K, it's actually very affordable). The exception is the sword that Slingshot carries, which was cobbled together from a beam sbaer handle (Gundam Seed Destiny: Gundam Legend) and the hip blade from an Armored Core kit (1/72 Mirage C02-Uranus). Enjoy!

    Great job on these, I think Skydive may be my favorite of the bunch. The way the black, red and white contrast each other is all kinds of awesome.

    So yeah, hurry up and clean your lens for that "next" thread. :D

    I don't know if you did it to suit the FP combiner or the customer requested it, but i still prefer the mold-character choices of the originals. Air Raid, imo, was better as the Treadshot repaint, in terms of alt. mode. Same goes for Slingshot, though he's slightly more acceptable, as his G1 alt. mode is practically in between the A-10 and whatever Treadshot transforms into. Slingshot's face is really creepy, though. Like, really, seriously creepy. Definitely wouldn't wanna run into him late at night...

    Otherwise, i like it. The panel lining makes them look like they jumped right out of the cartoon. :)

    Oh so good. I love it, great job as always buddy! Paint looks clean, that panel lining is so familiar...:p  it's like your signature panel lining.

    Uh, Slingshot looks clownishly creepy......

    Naw, it was my choice, really. I knew that I wanted Sky Dive and Fireflight to me the Jets, which left Slingshot and Air Raid holding the bags, really. I looked at Slingshot's face and went...whoa...he looks off, but he kinda grew on me, so I'm gonna count him as a happy lil accident. :lol 

    By hand with a .01 Archival Ink Micron Pen. The trick is to clear coat then panel line. Then, just follow the interior of the corner you want to stand out. Just takes a steady hand a lil practice, bro. :thumb 

    Yeah, you would know! Slingshot...maybe I should change his name to Sling Blade! He could come with a aside of french fried taters, MM Hmm. :lol

    Cool!

    I didn't think the pics were blurry.

    I wonder what your next customs thread will be... *prays it'll be the Wildfrost custom request I made*
