    Hi everyone,

    A BIG "Thank You" to Superquad7 for the idea to make a ALT Downshift.......I had been wondering what mold to use for this and the corvette is PERFECT!

    I still have more to do, and I have A LOT more done than what I'm showing, but here is a teaser....... The main scheme is similar, but I am going to make it distinctively different that SQ7's. Thanks again buddy! =)
    P.S. I know it doesn't look it, but the chest and leg guards are colored that flat black I always like to use.

    Enjoy,

    Looking good buddy! :thumb  I was pleasantly surprised how well Grimlock's head works for Downshift.

    The chest and hip panels look really nice! I can't wait to see what you do with him!

    We'll probably be borrowing each other's ideas as I plan to revisit my own Alternators Downshift in the future to give him a bit more color.:lol

    If you notice on the head, there are two shades of silver.........I used a silver leaf spray for the visor, and for the vent and the mouth plate, I used Titanium Silver. I think it looks very subtle, but helps pronounce the eyes a bit more.

    NICE ! ! !
    I know what you mean about the subtle diff. the 2 shades are - I did it by accident not long ago on a Alt. Grimlock head, I actually used the same paint for both areas but it came out much darker on the visor than the mouth plate thingy.......looks freekin sweet though !
