    So last year I gave a shot at customizing for the first time. Had a decent idea, put Generation Waspinator's head on a Combiner Wars Aerialbot and make a pre-beast mode Waspinator. Idea was good, execution...well for me at least it was a lot to be desired. So I went back to that idea after getting a bit better at customs and tried again.

    Nice job, and a definite improvement over the first version, though that one was good to start with! Some panel lining would bring out the details of the mold...

    Not that your first was bad in any way. But can certainly see how your skills have improved. Really liking this custom.

    Wow, great improvement! And yeah, the first was good. How much painting sort of work did you do between the two, over the year?

    This is a great custom!
    The 2016 version was cool, but this one is perfect.
    I always envisioned a Vehicle Waspinator as a helicopter (as helicopters were inspired by insects), but it is hard to dispute the level of awesome that you have presented here. Kudos!

    Really really nice!

    But shouldn't Waspinator be a helicopter?

    Nice.
    I need to get back to work on my Waspinator custom.

    if anyone should be a chopper it's Inferno.

    The first was good but the second really is pretty. Loving the more muted colors
