    HUGE spoiler customised from sheet styrene!

    custom made decals that took HOURS to makeon my computer! Im not kidding !
    custom made head from frankensteining pieces, scratchbuilding others
    recast weapons that were customised to fit
    scratchbuilt grappling hook from styrene and stretchy cord!
    Frankenstein'd speakers that attach when in car mode!

    heh thanks peeps

    it prob will be going up for sale, cuz i just cant help myself in making this particular character lol. Costs a small fortune for the parts i use, mostly the tyres and decals, but the resin molds i try to make arent cheap either!

    onwards and upwards!

    that's real strong. When I first looked at the vehicle mode it took me a second to figure out if it was a g1 jazz base or a heavily modded classic.

    heh THATS a good reaction. Mind you, i want ot get to the stage the ppl stop and go ' is that a model of it or something? Thats where i wanna be in terms of look for his alt mode !

    am i aiming too high here?

    Just a q to the public here, black on jazz, i didn't do weathering on it, just kept it straight black, not sure as to do the silver drybrushing.. thoughts? honestly will prob leave it straight black, but is interesting to know opinions ?

    So you like the sound sys? its a frankensteined unit that i found bits in old box of rubbish, then recasted some old thrusters and well, the rest is in the pics lol =-)

    Parts-forming accs, or transforming? your sculpting is great, just curious on the engineering.

    cool thnks guys =-)

    the only bits that are add on are weapons, ie, flamethrower, rifle, grappling hook, speakers. Feet are perfect transform, albeit carefully of course. Wanted the core figure to be perfect t/f and only the accessories as add ons =) he doesn't have enough interior space to put the weapons inside as such ;-) the feet take up most of the space, which you can kinda see in front pics

    lol yeh jazzed i will keep em coming fer sher ;-)

    That's not true though, other than I've had to kind of cheat on the grappling hook's winch a little bit. Other than that, I got it all to fit inside the cab of the car, including his shoulder launcher so that he can be displayed either toy- or toon-accurate. I just have to finish painting the sucker.

    This is absolutely amazing! I was looking at rumble619's IDW JAZZ the other day thinking,"I could do that. I could maybe even try to mod the original body to look like Jazz's G1 porsch 935 body." I was thought I could do it, but you sir have done it already. Twice (I guess?)! Now I'm not so sure I could do anything that is half as good as yours. Although, that Jazz head that F_R is selling looks so awesome I'll probably try anyway. That head could make just a straight repaint look like a G1. Did you really reshell a Prowl figure or mold on top of the regular body with green stuff or something? The only details that look like the original figure is the arms, legs, and car doors. HOW DID YOU DO THIS? :drool:  Anyway, really sweet job man.:cool:
