    Hi everyone,

    This is my second custom, movie jazz repainted to create wheeljack. Wheeljack is one of my favorite autobot, but I've never got to own the toy, now I'm making my own. This is more of a experimental custom, I'm still learning how to paint and sculpt. Notice I've re-sculpted the headlights to look more aggressive and a minor sculpt on the grill so it looks less of a Pontiac. I originally wanted to use repro labels but I'm too broke so I painted the red and green patterns on. Bot mode is still a wip, I want to add some wings and more scars. Thanks for looking.

    Thank you for the nice comments.
    I first painted the whole car in white, then I used masking tape to do the red and green. I first paint the red then the green but i think it might be easier to paint the whole roof green then paint the red and stripes on.

    Looks great. Did you do the first one from the original and then the final battle? I love it through, resembles the cartoon verison so much. I don't understand why they didn't use his colors in the movie.

    Actually I just the regular movie Jazz, first I did a regular paint job and let it cure for a week then added the details and battle scars.

    Lol, I'm glad you like it, that was my first time sculpting a head.
