    finally got a chance to put some finishing touches on this bot.
    the build up/bash of this bot is in a previous post.
    i also lucked out and actually found a hotwheels car that had perfect fitting offset wheels
    i didn't even have to use the previous set of wheels which required more work to use!!
    both the white primer and white topcoat are automotive enamels.every other color is either hand painted tamiyas or hand cut vinly.
    i did take into account some of your suggestions during the build including trying to incorporate the g1 "radio" chest thing,only now it's in his lower torso.
    nuff talkie...

    Great work. RTS Windcharger is an awesome transformer and I'm glad that Tailgate got some much needed attention.
    :) 

    The wok on the cranium is great.

    Elementary my dear Watson, this gentleman is lying, this is not a custom, it's an official secret item, this can only be an official item.

    Damn man, this is pure win!

    I have to be hoens,t I never got the appeal of this characer, but you nailed it dead on. Especially that pic of vehicle mode looks just like the old toy, i had to double check to make sure it wasn't. Very nice job man, you can instantly recognize who it is
