    Anyone remember my digibash of my first original character?

    Well, thanks to Classics Prowl having a d@mn-close car mode to a 350Z, I'm going to finally make this guy into a physical figure!!



    EDIT:

    Bot mode is finished!!

    Gallery coming soon...

    Thanks! It won't look exactly like that, as I digibashed an actual 350Z Roadster with Alt Meister's body & Alt Mirage's head, but it'll look enough like a blue 350Z for my liking, and the head will be altered enough to not look like 'Streaker's...

    :lol 

    So have I!!

    But, I think repainting & headswapping/modding Prowl will be easier than reshelling an Alt that I don't have (let alone getting the head!! :rolleyes2 )...

    true. maybe you should find a way to get a lil money to spend on parts to help you out? I mean, 15 bucks for the model kit, 40 or so for the meister, ten for a head from sculptbot... wouldnt' have to sell much, or heck even one custom job could get you enough moolah to get those things. :)  Just sayin'.

    Check KB Toys. I saw that kit there for $5 if you buy 2 kits :thumb 

    Somehow I know that. :D 

    BTW, where did you come up with the name "ZADE"? You know that I've always liked this guy :thumb

    To be perfectly honest, I was just trying to come up with random, original words that started with the letter "Z" (because of the car) that didn't sound stupid! :lol 

    As for doing the Alt...I've got 75% of the Classics parts (just need the head, some styrene to mod it & a can of Krylon blue). I'm definitely doing that first...

    they have always been disabled in project threads. they work in all discussion only threads. We want your images attached so that when you clean your photobucket or rearrange it it doesn't break links. look at darn near any thread older than january and you'll see what I mean.

    oh man, I've seen far far worse digibashes than that man. Don't know what you're talking about. I think that will be really really sharp in the end dude. It seems like it could use just the tiniest bit of added detail somewhere, but not sure where.

    I could probably put a little bit of silver on the upper arms, as long as they stay predominantly white otherwise...

    I don't want to overload it with detail, but if you've got ideas, please show them!!

    (Just keep them off the joints, as I will not paint them!! :redface2: )

    Go for it. Keep in mind I have very minor sculpting "skills", not alot of money (for buying different paints), won't paint joints, and not alot of time to spend on this (it's looking to be a once a week type thing :( )...

    Also, I don't want the vehicle mode to deviate from a blue 350Z. But play with the 'bot mode, please! :thumb

    Thanks to Wal-Mart's $7.77 deluxe sale, I was finally able to grab that Sunstreaker I was needing!!

    The head works as good as I was hoping - I'm worried, though, how easily it'll TF once I've added his "ears"...especially since I had to grind down his ridge, in order to get the head to fit through the hole, and in alt. mode... :( 

    I also gave him Sunstreaker's hands, too.

    Next step (after the ears) is filling in the holes on the roof, where the lightbar came out, and attaching that panel to the roof, and the roof to the arm inside (the screw from the lightbar was holding everything together).

    I keep going back and forth, forth and back, and I've finally decided that I'm going to be hand-painting him. I've had too much bad luck with sprays.

    So, once I've removed the black, I'll dismantle, sand any edges that will rub (I'll sand the whole thing, but I do not want paint coming off during TF or posing), and paint!!

    Dude, this is going to be awesome. I trully like the name, Zade..it has the mysterious ring to it, if that makes sense. But I looking for to seeing it completed. So far it looks dead on from those pics. So keep us updated.
