    okay guys here my first go around at doing a custom, it not finished yet, got some finishing touches to do and some painting. can anyone recommend a site that i can get decales in scale to place like his saying to enslave and punish and the emblem for the decepticon police embem and numbers( or a way to do a easy airbrush for the numbers. Ty guys..


    Update, okay redid the head like another Prime Barricade i saw, he used the BotShots head of barricade(Pure Awesomeness) I dismatled Bumblebees head and used Fixit sculpt to put it all together. well here is the pictures

    Update: okay, got the doors white. replaced the the Rims and Tires. Touched up the Paint some, added purple to the body. Up Next is Decals and finish the touch up paint. Weapons will end up Black with either Red Or Purple Tips, also thinking of making a Riot shield and Grenade/Riot Control Gun. Also Fixing the rims with My Fixit@ Sculpt

    Very nice. The small addition to the engine is great! Reprolablels might carry some of the stickers you are looking for.

    Not bad. A lot of yellow still showing through though. Go over it again and let it sit for a few days before handling it again.

    Looks good, I would go back and hit those exposed yellow parts with some paint and a brush though. I know it's hard to get with a spray can but a little touch up with a brush would make it cleaner I think overall. Still, good work man!

    Congrats on your first! I think you did a really nice job here :thumb 

    I'd like to see the white doors, though. Reprolabels will be able to hook you up with some Barricade labels.

    I hope we see more from ya :)

    Okay trying to do a wheel replacement right now any word on doing this the pun hole for the wheel is larger than the original pin was i was thinking maybe doing a a filler like glue to hold set pin in place so i don't have to drill on the figure itself or would be using the pin that came with the wheel be a better route to go with this any suggestions?

    Brilliant idea using RID BB as the base body, but this guy needs a remolded head STAT! Also, I'm not sure that the big tires work for me. The original tires seemed fine. Otherwise this custom is da bomb!

    I recomend if you have to drill one drill the wheel and insert round stock like styrene. Then you can tap a small hole the size of your new pin.
    Great work btw.
