    Better than I could do.

    But,,, Nightbeat needs more yellow :D  perhaps on the hidden area of his shoulders? (the part that becomes the firewall in vehicle mode)

    As for 'Runaboutamuck' for a mold I hate so much it sure lends itself to repaints. The white/blue looks REALLY good. And the gold overspray on the otherone actually looks kinda neat. Like a flame job or something.

    Cool ideas..I wish there were more Alts still coming out, even if just repaints like these, to fill out the last few lines..Nice work.

    Nice work, icanfly! The Battlechargers are particularly strong with what you've done to them. I'm assuming from the photos that these are the infamous Chinese KO BTs (? [noting the flames on the doors that are the same as the KO Swipe with the same color scheme). The thing I like the best about them is that despite them being repaints of each other, you've done a few things to really seperate them from each other (most notably the heads, which are VERY nice indeed!).

    That being said, I'm not too keen on the gold and silver "chests" mainly because that in alt mode, they are the convertible tops. Viper convertible tops in particular do not come in very many color options. The BT designers originally did not want to even put the Autobot faction symbol on there because of this reason (though somewhere down the line decisions were made to put it there). IMO, the color on the shoulders is enougn for me. I know your customs are trying to emulate and pay homage to G1, but these are asethetics that I take into mind with my own work as well.

    I can barely tell from the photo, but it looks as if the Nightbeat reprolabels set is in fact applied (more photos of this perhaps? :thumb ). The use of Camshaft's blight stick looks really nice. If anything, my suggestions would be to work on the arms (adding yellow perhaps?) and the head a bit more (it still reads too much like Ricochet right now to me). I think you can tell from my post that I'm not a huge stickler on G1; all I'm saying is pushing your work just a little further may give you some results that are even more awesome that what you already have :thumb 

    At the end of the day, though, they're your customs. If you're happy with em, that's all that matters :)

    I really like the battlechargers. for some reason, the viper mold fits perfectly with them. what did you use for the heads? I may have to do this myself, as I've got two extra vipers sitting around that are headless...

    It looks like he used a Side Swipe head and a Hound head (possibly from the KOs?) on each, respectively.

    Hey all

    long time since I actually checked this page but thanks for the feedback. Yeah they are from the KO's, & the heads are hound & sideswipes. swipe had his ears removed & both had a faceplate made from blu-tac, hardened with clear nail-polish, then painted. it actually is durable too. hmm, the crazy ideas that happen when u get a few days off work & no one else is home
    Ill wirk on some alt mode pics but tricky transforming them

    Regards

    JL

    The cons look great! How'd you get the factions symbols over the paint like that, are they clear-backed stickers?

    Did you buy those KOs from an ebay seller, or do you have another source where you bought them?

    Yeah clear backed stickers from reprolabels for sure. I try to do things the easy way! The KOs were from ebay, & they were cheap, but the postage was considerable and he gave me all of a $3 discount on combined shipping for all 4 I bought, so they weren't that cheap after all
