    Well guys, Here is part 4 of 5

    Nemesis Divebomb

    First a few people to thanks for their on going support of my kitbashes
    PK, TTT, SQ7, AutobotX23 & Redline.
    As well as all the Radicons here at TFW

    I'm really really happy with how he turned out. I've put 2 months plus into this bash.
    I really wanted what I saw in my head to come out in the final product.
    I'd like to think it has.

    I used Sideswipe as the base for this bash. I removed the hood & attached Divebombs tail feathers to the hood mount.
    The hood is held on the chest by some of those magnets from a cheap Magnetix toy.
    The wings have been shaved down so they will sit flush with the rear end section & have been screwed into place.
    The head has been shaved down a fair bit from what it was, so the G1 alt mode head can be epoxied into place.
    Custom purple Repolabels added to the wings. Thanks to Decoy13 & his crew for that.
    Other then that I painted everything with Fusion gloss Black & Navy blue, used Testor's gloss Black, Blue & Dark blue.

    Non-Transforming as with the rest of the Nem Preds

    Now on to Nemesis Rampage, to complete the set.

    A TF custom that doesn't transform! Oh noes! :lol 

    I really like everything that you've done with this guy, man! My one request: pose this guy (and the rest when you finish) and shoot more photos!

    . . . ok, that was two requests. Sue me. :p 

    Once you finish with these Alt bashes, I wanna see you repaint a G1 Predaking as Nemesis Predaking. I'd imagine that'd be pretty easy :wink:

    Thanks alot guys, you know how to make a rookie blush. :redface2: 

    TTT: I'll see what I can do about face pics, my cam does not really like getting that close to the subject without being blurry.

    SQ7: Once all the Nem Preds are done I'll be taking action shots & group shots with Nemesis Predaking.
    I'd love to repaint a G1 Predaking but my wife would KILL me if I asked for a second one or even thought twice about repainting mine

    Honestly, You would have to ask Decoy13 or His crew at Repolables. I asked him for custom purple sets for Divebomb & Razorclaw. That purple is what I got.

    I have to say, Nemy, that these paint apps might be the cleanest so far!!! He gives off such an Aztec vibe, too. You slick bastard!! :rock

    I never noticed that until you pointed it out. He does have a Aztec Warrior look to him.

    I'm thinking of talking to Decoy13 about getting some custom purple decals for Nemesis Headstrong & Tantrum.
    They look odd & out of place without the purple now.
