    This is my third time having fun with this kit. I just can't get enough of it! Love this representation of the character way more than the bloated midget we got from hasbro. Lots more little paint details to add, as well as lots of waterslide sponsor decals. Stay tuned folks, and enjoy this in the meantime!

    Y'know, someone should cast and adapt that chest piece so it can be attached to the official release we got. On a seperate note, amazing work there !

    Thanks guys/gals! I should be getting some updated photos with alt. mode up this weekend. He's turning out much "cleaner" than my last one. My last one (seen in my sig) experienced a VERY slight yellowing (not really enough to notice at a glance, but I'm just very detail oriented) of sorts due to the Krylon Gloss clear coat I applied. Which is funny because it says on the can - "non-yellowing". Well, live and learn from those days, now I only use the matte finish to seal.

    Every time I see one of these, I'm surprised that it still looks better than any of the other official Wheeljacks we've ever gotten. Prime Wheeljack is close, but I think this conversion just looks right somehow, even though the transformation is a bit different.

    I like this. This is a better wheeljack. Normally I hate this mold but it works well for this.
