    well i did it as a mystery WIP because there has been a surge of WJ customs lately and i did want my project to get ignored because of this. also it seemed allot of people enjoyed the mystery anyways. well this project wore my Patience thin and i am not going to go into that now. some parts i wish were better but c'est la vie

    big shout out to autobotx23 he made some of the decals for this project my neighbor made the others. autobotx23's decals are durable and slide well with no color smudge. my neighbors were not as good as autobotx23. the only reason i used some of my neighbors was because i could sit right beside him and design them like having my brand on one of the sponsor decals

    Also, any tips on how you unassemble bumblebee to paint? Any crucial parts to be unassembled? He seems very complicating.

    The ground flare kit and the bumper combined with the aggresive spoiler really make this Wheeljack one of a kind. Congradulations on a job well done.

    thanks man :)  i have not heard if he was going to be in the movie or not i hope so though


    here is the original post that shows it pre paint http://www.tfw2005.com/radicons-cus...e-project-ground-pounder-wip-ud-91508-166200/

    the ground fx were made using styrene on the bottom then adding bondo glazing putty. after sanding the putty to rough shape i added a coat of super glue to strengthen the putty. sanded and repeated several times. i could have used aves apoxy sculpt but opted for the glazing putty instead because i had an abundance of it

    the first couple of times i used this mold for a custom i tore it down to small pieces but i found out it is not completely necessary to do that so on this one i took off all the parts at the ball joints and only took apart the legs and arms leaving the bulk of the chest intact

    the windows i used tamiya transparent green it dominated the blue fairly easy for obvious reasons. the decal was Bills idea and i loved it .it is so subtle when holding it in hand you would never notice it. so thats why i did a close up of it

    he spoiler is scratch built and is held on by 2 rare earth magnets i buried 2 screws in the plastic on top of the rear bumper for it to attach to. an another not i used a total of six rare earth magnets on this project 2 in the roof 2 in the arms. the roof turns into a shield and can attach to wj like 6 diff ways same with the spoiler

    everyone that gave complements thanks so much i really appreciate it
