    wanted to share this with everybody today - my classics shockwave is pretty much finished. im very happy with the results of my first TF that i used my airbrush on.

    i have used it before but just practiced so to speak!

    kept things simple with this one - changed the arms and added a pipe from the back pack attached via magnets. oh and i went with pink parts because i just thought it looked cool and kept it looking clean.

    anyhow will pst pics of the tank mode once the paint has settled some more and finished the touch ups! in the mean time let me know what you think!

    Oh and last thing i took 2 pictures one with flash one without to show the paint best i could!

    they are from the universe dropshot. managed to find one on ebay really cheap and his parts are great to use on other stuff. just took the arms for this however.

    hey TJ - not quite. had to dremel the arms around the holes down a bit and also some on the two shoulder parts. also thickened the arm poles up too as they are quite wide on dropshots arms.

    nothing too intricate or time consuming.

    Looking good, I never can figure out why more people don't airbush. To each his own I guess. Still very nice!

    The pic on the right looks the best, maybe just sharpen the image a tad. Great work on this!

    That's cool, but can he transform into an approximation of G1 Shockwave?
