    Ok so here is an older custom i only just got around to taking half decent pictures of - i really need a light tent set up lol

    anyhow thought id share him with you. as mentioned by other people who have bought this kit and used it, i found it an average quality.

    had a few fit issues and rub spots but think i got them ironed out! Also on another not i cant wait for the official release of Wheeljack i do like the character :rolleyes: 

    let me know what you think :thumbs2: 

    oh and hes now up on ebay - link to it in the ebay section

    Gotta say this looks beautiful. White customs that turn out like this always stand out to me because as a basher I know that ish is hard to get right. I also agree that I wish the official release was more like this one. Feel free to send it to me when you get the Gen version :D  I'll gladly pay for shipping

    Where did you get the shoulder launcher from?

    Well I was thinking of ebaying this one because of ordering the Gen version and in general saving for mine and my girlfriends house! But open to offers on here lol!

    And the launcher came with the upgrade kit as did the wings, gun and head. Also a difficult was smoothing out the headlamp holes with aves but it's very smooth :)

    Awesome. Absolutely beautiful - and as has been said, white's incredibly hard to get right, so that makes this job even better!

    Much as the new official version looks nice, I have to say that this mold with this mod always impresses me. I think I like it better for the overall look in both molds.

    Great job. Love the paint and the head.

    Great paint apps, wheeljack does indeed look very factory smoothe,
    and all this with a paint brush as well.

    It looks really great. I must ask why you painted the wheels silver, though.

    Very, very nice!:thumbs2:  Looks very clean and profesional.

    That silver looks like it's the original silver that was on the tires. From every retail version of the Lambo mold I can think of.

    yeah dudes autobot burnout is right the wheels are stock.

    as far as im aware in the cartoon and oringinal toy the wheels were black. but i usually try to go for a factory look on my customs so left them the way they were. but i guess red would have looked cool!

    that is however saved for my Version 2 of punch/counterpunch soon to have his own gallery!

    Yeah, they were black on the original toy.

    The reason I'd have gone with red is because the real Group 5 Stratos has red wheels.
