    sorry for the shite pics, the iphone can do everything but take decent pics.
    however, i am pleased to present the first of my 5 terrorcons (no i havent stated work on the others yet). in addition to this being the first of five, this is my first completed kitbash as well as my first paintjob so its kind of a big day for me.

    inspired by menchOy's Rampage, all is criticism welcome. if anyone can tell me how to stop my paint from chipping/scratching, i'd be forever thankful.

    Id also like to give a special thanks to Dan, who had no faith in his paint-teching ability and for painting Rippy's head.

    That is impressive man, any chance of size comparison shots please? Well done on your first finished custom. I take it the other terrorcons will have the same look?

    Wow, thats pretty impressive! I really like the way it turned out. As for paint chipping off, you have to sand down the spots where 2 pieces of painted plastic rub together. It takes some trial & error until you get used to how much you have to sand off (mostly ERROR on my part, I'm still getting the hang of it myself) Other than that, when your done painting, seal it.

    This. Is. Wicked.

    Rippersnapper was the ONLY Terrorcon I ever owned ( :banghead:  ) and I absolutely love your updated version of him. If I saw him at the store, I'd get 'em - no questions asked. My only "complaint" here would be that there needs to be a couple more Beast mode pics.

    thank you! ill try to take some photos this weekend with masterpiece grimlock. the other terrorcons will have the same feel to them, theyll all be voyager sized except the possibility of Hungrrrr. ive got this crazy idea to use supreme starscream for him, the legs are perfect for the dual monsters but not so much for abominus's thighs. :(  still toying with it though, no rush on him because cutthroat is next.

    thank you, you got your wish! i think the head is from energon sideswipe, but im not totally positive.

    thanks again, wish granted!

    thanks for the paint help! when say to seal it, is this what the clear coat does? i think im going to have to comb the forums more for paint tips, i really want to get this issue taken care of before im ready to paint Cutthroat. as it stands, im already going to have to touch this guy up.

    i love the terrorcons and abominus, but they never got their props. i added more alt mode photos, ill get a better camera soon.

    thanks! im going for broke right out the gate, i really hope i dont drop the ball on the gestalt.

    thanks! W.i.P pics of cutthroat coming soon!

    Very nice...and VERY BIG!!! This would make for an extreme large scale Abominus. Also, you changed up that mold well enough to where Grimlock and the Animated look are no longer present.

    Great job.
