    Hello world,

    I love my HA Soundwave so it's no surprise that I make a custom.

    Painting is nearly finish, I think it looks a little bit better than the horrible grey from Hasbro. :inquisiti 
    All black parts are painted in new black, which was very "nerv-rending".
    I painted the Merdedes-star in a chrom-silver and the back lights in dark red/brown. The silver itself is very shiny, which is cool.

    I love the altmode, because It's a Mercedes and he is being built here in my area :) 

    More pictures coming soon! :)

    You are faster than a flash with your comments! :D 

    Thanks dude, it was not easy to paint Soundwave in shiny silver.
    I used a expensive "special silver lack" from my dad.

    Yeah we can talk about in NTF, I will start a thread.

    What is ESP :)

    Just to make your life easier, I figured out AFTER I painted my HA soundwave shoulders by hand the way you are there that the shoulders actually can be unscrewed, removed and safely painted with an airbrush/spray paint. I went back and redid mine, since I wasn't happy with the hand painted results.

    Not that there's anything wrong with doing it by hand.

    Looks good, btw.

    I understand, thanks. Can you show us your Soundwave custom?

    Here's the thread.

    I like the detail you added to yours. I didn't take mine quite as far.

    I'm planning on doing a second one with a metallic white car mode and a lot more silver in the bot mode than I did with this one.

    Looks awesome! Yeah my second Soundwave will be white with black wheels :) 

    The lighting is blue, but the speakers itselfs are gray.

    Thanks :)
