    Hey guys :) 

    Just wanted to throw some pics up of the boxes i worked on today. I posted pics a while back of a repainted Evac that i painted to look like a Coast Guard rescue chopper. For some reason the thread was deleted so i couldnt bump it up so im making a new one.

    The blades is nothing special, Im going to redo him using a blackout oe the newer ROTF figure because the Evac colors bled through the white over time. Hard to see it in the pics but easy to see it in person..

    Ok so i decided to make a Movie style box for him. I had sold a Blackout figure but the person didnt want the box so i used it to make my layout and i took the window from it to use for the new box.

    Instead of the alspark graphics faded intot he red i went and used a Marine weather map of a Hurrican track. I faded that into the red but the pics made it look darker thenthey actually are. I searched around for some cool Coast Guard pics and logos and added them to the layout and also added the coast guard motto " Semper Paratus" which means "Always Ready"

    Also instead of adding a pic of the Bots head on the front i went ahead and used the image of the Bald Eagles head. Ithink it fit in the layout nicely.
    On the bottoms of the box i put an image of G1 blades and his G1 bio background .

    Have a look and aye what ya think of it :)  Hope ya like it .

    Enjoy :)

    Thanks guys :)  glad you like it . It took me a while to make this box. I pretty much made it front scratch in photoshop tracing over scans of the orginal blackout box. The box layout is grazy looking, if you take apart a 07 movie box you will see what i mean lol.

    I am going to redo Blades though, he just looks pretty cheap because the evac bright orange shows through. So ill get me a blackout or the ROTF one i forget his name but he would be best because he is such a light color plastic. Ill just swap the heads and fixer up :) 

    Im working on some others as well like a Movie Ratchet into an NCIS emergency responc vehicle. And im still working on my Smokey and the Bandit project. I just have very little time to work on them right now so things are comming along slowly. The Blades box was made over the course of about 2 months becuase i only did it in my spare time and in between making boxes for people .

    Thanks again though , glad you all liked it :)

    Thanks :)  , i see these choppers all the time when they take off from the local coast guard station acrosse the river from me and Deadliest Catch is like one of my favorite shows so those are pretty much what inspired me to do this whole project.
