    Classics style G2 Road Rocket WIP Update

    My take on a classics style G2 Road Rocket. I found my junker from when I was a kid. Just a simple head swap for now. I will add paint details and If I can find it I will try to add his saw weapon.

    New pics. Sorry if they are blurry. Stupid crappy digital camera. Stripped all the paint. Now on to painting.

    That head works really well for that mold! I think it just went from ROTF to G2 specs with the headswap. Awesome idea! And taking that blue paint off should show some red underneath. This ought to make for a rather easy, yet quite accurate custom! Hell if ya ask me, from the pictures the reds look to be about the same color, too.

    Thanks guys. The red color is almost the same. Not quite sure what I will do with that body. Sorry about the pics. I work nights so the only time i could take picks was when I woke up at like 6 pm last night and I couldn't find my camera so I used my cell. Ill put up better picks later.

    Awesome! I think you should paint the darker, burgundy parts black and remove the blue paint. :thumb
