    Or Classics DOTM Wheeljack? I repainted the Generations Wheeljack into DOTM Que's colors. I used the Krylon flat black for the base coat, then dry brushed with Testors acrylic silver, aluminum, insignia blue, and gold. Then gave him a gloss clear coat. I also gave him Generations Kup's rifle to clip on to his shoulder.

    Very cool. I think in my mind Wheeljack and Que are either brothers or best pals.

    I like the idea of Que being Wheeljack's old uncle. I may revisit this idea if I find another Generations Wheeljack. But for now, I like the classics feel of this.

    its a nice tribute to the badmouthing genius from DOTM. "they're great for kicking #%#" lol. i love the paint job. Since its a concept from another universe, the only thing i would suggest,which really isnt even necessary, is a kup face, on the wheeljack head, that should do the trick for an elderly genius.

    The paint work looks fantastic! I say give him a monocle or something, though, just to set his head apart from Wheeljack's.

    I did think about giving the side panels on the head a light blue dry brushing to simulate the "Einstein" hair. :)

    Perhaps Que was Wheeljacks mentor and since Que died, he didn't finish of teaching wheeljack properly which is why some experiments wheeljack do go wrong...

    ... Love your custom, it's a really nice blue uve used :thumb  maybe black wheels and a silver outline around the rim would look nice? , like in DOTM
