    Finally got round to my first bash!

    Been meaning to give it a go for a couple of years but never got started for one reason or another. I recently got hold of a decent airbrush/compressor cheaply and picked up a couple of Acid Storms reduced, so been working on my classics Thundercracker.

    He still needs a bit of work, a couple of Decepticon Logos for the wings and a touch up or two, but I'm pretty pleased with him so far.

    Not the best camera I'm afraid, will update pictures when finished and with better lighting!!


    Edit: Could only attach 10 pictures, even though it says a maximum of 20. Anyone know why?

    Here's a few more of the bot mode.

    The blue is perfect. Great job! Best use of acidstrom. Where did you get that stand? It looks cool.

    Cheers!

    Thanks. I was gonna use a metallic blue as a top coat, but decided against it when I saw the result of the normal enamel.
    The stand is just a couple of perspex blocks glued together.

    :D 

    It's not very often you see me post outside the Spammers/UK sightings thread.
    There's not enough wierdo's out here! ;)

    That is a GREAT job! The colors look solid and clean--very good with the striping!

    Great seeing TC getting some more attention. Acid Storm's release has allowed for a little more of that, and it's great seeing the custom TC's still showing up. :)

    Although I gotta give the airbrush most of the credit! If it was by hand it wouldn't look half as good.

    Thanks. I've got a couple more to play with as well, picked up 3 reduced to £5 each. (Which is cheap fro the UK!)

    :D 

    Thanks for all the words of encouragement!
