    Hi again! 2nd thread woo on a roll here heh.

    Now I just want to share my wheeljack i just finished decaling this morning.

    Ive only got car pics ATM of the final figure, I just want everything to set well before handling it again! **EDIT i have one dodgy photo before everything was done, but you can see it at least how it came up!***

    He features the following
    Custom front spoiler scratchbuilt in styrene
    custom rear spoiler also from styrene
    custom head from styrene, old hose connecter, a piece of pipe and a apple. Well... maybe not the apple.... ;-)
    Krylon fusion white and tamiya and citadel detailings!
    oh and the testors decals I shoved on it this morning ! heh

    Hope you like it!

    Dude your car mods are so kick ass! Can't wait for the bot mode pics, sounds like the head is gonna be pretty cool

    EDIT: the head looks sweet too but I think the other chest would fit more basically since it seems you're trying to acheive as much of a G1 look as possible

    That's very nice detailing. Makes it look almost like an Alternator.

    Does he have rear wings in Robot mode?

    I did actually make some wings for him, but decided that bot mode looked cooler by having the front of the car for his chest ! but the alternate version of him had the wings supported in both bot and car!
    it was bascially a scratchbuild 'turbo' with transparent wings that folded out in bot mode =-)

    hehe, i dont think hasbro will pay attention to us around here now would they? be cool if they did though!

    if only we could send in the parameters of what we want made, and they make it, but alas... ! well it gives me things to do on my day off !

    Holy crap!

    That car mode is pretty bang-on! Nice job. The spoiler, etc really makes the difference.

    *applause*

    Now for the robot mode! :)

    Car mods look great. I think the Sunstreaker chest is more fitting for WJ but still looks good too.

    thanks guys!

    Well I added some extra pics showing the original idea/design with the windscreen forward idea. Guess it looks neat as well, dunno, can change depending on my mood,right? lol

    Basically the scratchbuilt from styrene transparent wings set, usable in both modes, and the shoulder cannon, only in bot mode!

    Im sure a few will notice some inconsistencies with weapons systems to head module, however, I like the cartoon shoulder cannon but didn't like cartoon face LOL, so stuck with the cool rendition, G1 version! hehe.

    Thanks for looking ! Keep an eye out, he'll prob end up on ebay as well to pay for my toy collecting addictions!
