    Hello.
    Been working on and off on these chaps for quite some time!!!
    My Menasor is not quite working, I'm not 100% happy with the arm connections, so I've given up for the time being and thought I'd just concentrate on the Stunticons loose, without them combining for the time being.

    Generations Tracks used for Wildrider.
    Classics Nemesis Prime for Motormaster.
    Classics Sunstreaker for Brakedown
    Classics Sideswipe for Dead End
    Classics Dragstrip as himself!! Haven't touched him (yet)
    Trailer for Motormaster was the BTS-01B command center.

    Simply a repaint of the figures, with new heads, all on ball joints. I made a plastic box to go over Motormaster's head. Megatron's head from that green tank figure was used, and gave him a sword.
    All paints used were enamel, and all finished with a gloss varnish.

    Lastly, I know photography isn't going to be my next job!! :)  Sorry about the pictures, not great I know.

    This really fits him. I'm sure this will be the new standard for the character. :thumb

    They can combine, but I'm not totally happy with the arm/body connection. Trying to improve that area. Upper legs, waist, feet, hands and head are all 100% done. I started by wanting a Menasor badly, but feel in love with the individual Stunticons and don't know if I'll merge them together now. Thanks for asking.

    Thanks.

    Thanks very much mate!

    Hi. I just removed the roof part, and painted the chest metallic silver and some shades of grey. The amount of time I had the Masquerade episode on 'pause' to try and get the colours of the Stunticons as close as possible, my wife and kids would shout at the tv 'OH NOT THIS EPISODE AGAIN!!' :) 
    Think I almost know that episode word for word now!!!

    Nice team, and especially love the Wildrider idea! Though I'd like to see Jazz used for Dead End, personally.

    Thanks!

    I'm really happy about that! :)  I'm always getting inspiration from people here, nice to give a tiny bit back! Thank you.

    I might do that! I've got a few spare Generation Jazz's. Thanks! :)

    I groaned"oh no" out loud when I saw you were using Tracks as Wildrider, until I saw what you had done, and was blown away! Love it!

    HA! I'm not a lover of painting white either! So we've got white paint, and a love of Junkions in common! :) 

    Thanks! I wasn't sure about the mold. After the first coat I thought it was going to turn out bad, then the more I got into it I started to really like it. I wasn't sure it would work, but wanted to use/try a different figure for Wildrider. Thanks again.

    Cheers.
