    ...for a recent commission. He's got a 'near' scratch built G1 head in there
    Quite happy with the red, it's got a nice metallic and pearl sheen to it. Exhaust pipes were from an antenna. Client wanted a nice G1 gold stripe, I thought I'd make that a little more modern and added the fadeout back to red.

    Love the fading stripe and the exhaust pipes. It'll be interesting to see this with the G1 styled head.

    Awesome! would have loved the game-esk stripe though. not straight, it is straight for bout half the way then goes up at 45 degree's then levels out at the top

    Is the windshield opaque? I wonder when you decide for clear or opaque...

    Nice job. I like the hole G1 look!

    I did the same to mine a while back and it really looked good. But then I decided to sell it on ebay. Oh well my loss.

    masked and air brushed. to keep it thin thin thin/


    lol. no way man. i have someone doing LEDs for me, not this one though. typically people opt out of LED options when ordering customs. maybe cause I charge more.

    looking good, a possible idea would be to make the road armor bumpers more of a flat black. if i remember correctly they are flat and not shiny at all in real life. the antennae idea for smokestacks looks great. can't wait for bot mode
