A little something I've been working on.
While, cool, this just hit me like a ton of bricks . . . one could probably make a Pointblank from a Blurr and a SG Drift without using a drop of paint. Just a screwdriver, patience, and for the SG Drift, a forgiving wallet.
Edit: I forgot about the Japanese side panels in car mode. Still cool, both in your concept, and execution.
nice i like, though peacemaker paint loks a liitle rushed.
It looks god. Paint seems a bit thick though.
Yeah, Model Master reds are not my friends. Next time I'm going to try to thin the paint a little more for a more even coat.
You just need to be patient in your execution.
I really like the concept and even the color. What you may want to do is use an acrylic paint and thin it out with some Future polish. It'll make it much smoother, and even.
Simple yet well thought of kitbashing and very original~!
I was waiting for someone to do this!
Nice work, the redalert head really brings it all together
great idea. The paint does look rushed. did you use any primer? painting red over blue, even light blue is usually hard to get good results without many, many coats. excellent idea though.
I actually used Pointblank here as a testbed for a couple of ways to paint. I tried a few different primers, some sanding, and different numbers of coats. Unfortunately, I didn't have anything to thin the paint with so it all still came out globby. Payday has arrived, though, so it's out to the store before I start my next project.
Can you please work for Hasbro? Pretty Please! It's just that this is so awesome and I'd love to by one!
This, and it's pretty much what I have happening, except I kitted a Cybertron Longrack head to slot into Blurr's torso. Soon as SG Drift ships, I'll have the parts swapped.
How did you get the Sideswipe / Red Alert head to work with Blurr's neck?
i am so wanting to try this myself...nice work
This looks really good.
I trimmed down the neck a bit and then drilled out some of the balljoint on the head to match, then glued the two together. I hate that he loses some articulation, but it works.
