    A work in progress on a repaint I thought of the other day. Another set of twins that could use an update, Runabout and Runamuck!! The components: RTS Turbo Tracks bodies and RTS Fallback heads! The only downside was that Track's heads were such a pain in the ass to get off, which I found the ballsocket was way too large to fit Fallbacks head. I dremelled off the old ball, and replaced it with Fallbacks ballsocket piece. So far, Runamuck has his first paint coat. This is a drybrush aplication.

    And, a few hours later, I have Runabout getting moving with painting, as well as adding another coat to Runamuck. However, after looking at the pics, I notice a few spots that are bothering me with the white and I have to clean it up a lil more.

    Wow great work, and those head choices work really well. And you avoid supporting the club. Great job.

    Wait...TFCC is making a set? Don't tell me they are the same figures. Am I cursed with my customs that right after I make mine, that there is a official release? I swear, this happens with every one of my figs I repaint.

    Edit: Just did a search. Are you F$&@ing s@#&ing me?! I wasn't even aware that they were making these. I just was thinking the other day that it would be cool to have these. This is what I get for not looking over everything from Botcon.

    White is a very difficult color to paint. And you pulled this off nicely :thumb

    Added an alt mode pic to the first post, and in the process, noticed a big red dot right near the grille... I swear, if it weren't for these pics, I wouldn't spot things I messed up!

    I really like the black/white team up here with these two. Plus the red on the black goes very well with it. :) 

    Now I'm curious how a repainted Wheeljack from the Prime line would look in a G1 paint scheme (with the numbers and sponsors).

    i like the head for it, you should make molds of the head and ball joint incase others want to do your take on him as this is more original and looks better then the TFclub one.
