    Heres another one of my spare Ricochet Customs. Up this time is Cliffjumper with a modified Ricochet head. I decided to leave a few of the black piece unpainted this time to give it a different look. Let me know what you think.

    I normally use Krylon Fusion on all my Customs unless I have to switch to something else. Im also working on a Arcee Custom as well and ended up having to go with a differnt type of paint for that one.

    Looks great. Actually I had a similar idea earlier which I was about to post pics of the final product using a KO smokescreen in red with rally decals. Im gonna post them along with a few others I am working on ie. a minor rework of Red Alert, & KO alterations to create Runabout, Runamuck & Hun-Grrr

    Damn, I was wondering what I would do with my spare Ricochet head. Now I know. Just have to sand down the "horns"

    How did you make the head? That's a nice custom of a great character.

    Its just a modified Richchet head. I ground off the front horns and rounded the front of the head off. Then I just added the rear horns using some epoxy putty and built up the back of the head with some more epoxy putty. Its actually not very hard to reproduce. Ive thought about trying to a resin casting of it because I friend of mine wants a few of the same head for some Customs that hes working but I have no clue where to begin with resin casting.
