    Finished the details on Hot Rod this evening.... some of the modifications were:

    - Removed light bar on roof, fixit sculpted, sanded, polished
    - Added hood scoops/vets made from fixit sculpt
    - New, larger rims and tires added
    - Complete new paint job with kandy automotive eurethanes
    - hand painted flames with 3 shades of gold flake
    - Gave him hands from a ROTF Breakaway
    - Head from a Classics Jetfire with minor mods to the face (wanted a more "human look")

    Not a huge fan of the chrome dubs but trust me, that's a minor gripe to the overall AWESOMENESS of this custom. Great job!

    Why can't HasTak accept the awesome redco potential that is movie Barricade? Great Job!

    I already commented on the Alt mode in the "sneek peek" thread, but as for bot mode... I love the details on the inside of the arms. I was wondering if you were gonna do something to make him look less gorilla like than how Barricade looks, and you did an awesome job of doing so. I really like this piece all around, but your paint job seals the deal!

    You've really managed to "humanize" that monster! Great job! From buggy boogyman to downright hunky! The paint job screams Young Punk!

    The concept and the paint are phenomenal. However... when I see his tiny hands I think of that Burger King commercial. Hot Rod here better avoid any Whoppers he might come across. Beautiful work, though!

    Incredible job, both modes are hot! I'd paint the spoiler either gold or yellow to top it off, to nod the G1 figure. :cool:

    Believe me I tried multiple times. I think because they are metallic flake, they play with the light. I think it may just be one of these things that can't be photgraphed well. I am going to give it another shot tonight.

    Its Like KANDY!!!!! He looks amazing! I'm not really digging the head for the movie vibe, but he looks smoking hot. One comment, I'd grab a lower adhesion tape for the windows. I know how hard it is to get the residue off.

    Anywho, Hot Rob looks phenomenal with dubs, and the flames...PRICELESS.
