    Rainy night + boredon + random junk parts + Two bottles of wine = This custom

    He's already done, now I just need to paint him up.
    He's voyager sized, 2.0 cm taller than Classics Megatron.

    Hoping to finish up soon. Thanks for looking.

    I've heard of barrel-chested, but not crotch chested :lol 

    Seriously though, this looks excellent. I can't believe the alt mode seems to work so perfectly!

    Haha,you used Primes' crotch as his chest,that's so fucking genius!

    It all looks really cool,and works way too well.Specially considering it was made from random junk.

    So you finnaly used your third Optimus Masterpiece, Mr. Joey. It is very good to be a Toy Store owner. Continue with the good work.

    Yes, that's the true spirit of kitbashing and only people like us understand it. We're human junkions pals. hehe

    Haha don't believe him, If that was ever true I'd be completely bankrupt for slaughtering the toys instead of selling them. The only thing I have are many, many boxes of junk.
    This OP crotch is a leftover from my old Overlord project.

    In fact I was stuck between Scorponok and an original Shockwave with the same G1 transformation scheme, but I found out Scorponok was going to be a lot fitter.

    Thanks everybody!

    Good news! I finished up the paintjobs last night and once I apply the minor touch ups he's 100% done.
    I'll be posting pics as soon as I'm able to touch him again, because the paints are still too fresh thanks to the Crap Tamiya spray paint I used.

    Advice: If you ever think of using Tamiya 22 - Light Green...Forget it...throw it away...Run away from it...If possible DESTROY IT! This paint sucks, at least the spray can I bought recently. The liquid is too thin and the fucking spray nozzle sprays it ridiculously thick and irregular all around once you press it.

    I absolutely hate Tamiya bright colours, unlike the good dark shades they produce all the bright colours are crap.
    Thank God I had some excellent automotive paints to use on the other parts.

    Even though, with extra care and patience I managed to finish Scorponok. And he looks awesome.

    Pics soon and thanks everyone for the support and ideas!

    These are the last WIP pics before the paintjob.
