    Bombshell is built using the oversized KO version of the g1 mold. The crotch, thighs and knees come from movie wreckage. The forearms belong to excellion. The hands, upper arm covers, shins and feet are gundam. The head is scratchbuilt over gundam eyes. The insect legs are lego atlantis crab legs over metal ball joints. the weapons on the forearms are modded from rotf breakaway. paints used were duplicolor, testors lacquers, modelmaster enamels and future clear coat. I designed the decals and had them printed by the always reliable Boggs.
    The base is a plaster casting of a model railroad scenic rock and I used various inks and paints to get the realistic rock look. The grass/moss and the trees/branches are also scenic model railroad stuff glued and clear coated into place.

    Stellar work, as ever. I absolutely love his robot mode - now he looks like he's gonna kick your arse and then break your mind! The pic with Blitzwing in particular makes him looks so imposing, like he's the one in charge.

    The pic with Skywarp made me chuckle too, reminding me as it did of their little interchange in AHM...
    "Your mind games won't work on me, bug."
    "Yes. And with good reason."
    Possibly the best. Comeback. Ever. :lol :

    Sometimes I forget just how much, but Bombshell is friggin' awesome. :D 

    Anyway, I'm digressing. In case you hadn't figured it out, I quite like it. [/understatement]
