    at the mo im trying to make several customs but ive been asked by someone to do Classics Wheeljack for them using the sunstreaker mould.

    Now ive found the PERFECT head - Energon DOwnshift
    this is perfect because the head fits on easy with only ever so slight modding but also the ears are the right size so that the head can be transformed/moved when transforming without any problems at all

    im having difficulties finding a decent white paint but what i REALLY wanted to know is

    has anyone tried G1 Wheeljack stickers on this mould? do they fit well? or are they to small? i will try and post some pics later on

    btw im just using this pic as i havent actually taken any yet and some odd reason this thread wont happen unless i add a pic or something

    The stickers work pretty well, but you need to modify the chest/roof sticker, as it is the wrong shape. I used this recipe you are trying to do liek two years ago, here are the only pics I could find i have of it, hope this helps.

    I would encourage you to take some WIP pics as soon as you can. I have yet to only play and plan with my Classics Wheeljack, and I enjoy seeing everyone's take on one of my favorite characters.

    That, and it's more of a discussion thread and less of a WIP without pics.

    I've used the repro-labels on mine and they fit great. What I did was add a rounded decal to the windshield. This allows the repro-labels to flow nicely without being trimmed as well as differentiate the aesthetic from Streaker. Good luck! Get it posted!
    Oh, and yeah, I moisturize! Wannafighdaboudit!?

    the reason the thread can't be posted without at least one attached image is simply because it's a Radicon board rule that all project threads must have their images attached.

    That's a really nice looking Sideswipe, though.

    I am hoping that Hasbro will come out with WJ and Jazz, but if not, I may ask someone to make them for me...but keep us posted on your progress!

    Again, I am frustrated that this is a WIP thread, with absolutely no WIP pics. At this point this is a thread of all conjecture and opinions, without any physical work to substantiate it.

    This thread will be moved to the Radicon Discussion form, and will be moved back once there is any pictures of the actual work being done.

    Agreed. This is a discussion thread at the moment. Please, try not to act like you just happened to find Energon Downshift for the perfect head since it's pretty much common knowledge that he's an homage to Wheeljack, heck that was his name in Superlink.

    So many people have done this exact custom that you should be able to simple search Radicons and find like 10 or more threads that have done the exact same thing, similar thing or at least talked about how most of them used repro stickers to do it.

    Good luck though :thumb

    no.........if YOU bother to look you will find more people actually seem to use CYB DOWNSHIFTS head rather than Energon Downshifts head...and im not sure why because he doesnt seem to work that well when transforming.

    Im adding pics later on once the paint has dried
