    When it's time to get there fast, few can do it better than Powerglide.
    Don't let his size fool you, this aerial ace think he's a much smaller plane, the way he barrel rolls, dips and dives through the air at top speed.

    [​IMG]

    Once a fuel supply plane on Cybertron, he was eager to get to Earth and bring the fight to the Decepticons after news of the Fallen's defeat reached him.
    With thick skin that can repel about any munition and sharp thinking, he helps take NEST operatives around the world in no time.

    Transporting Ironhide to the jungles of the Pacific while in search for Bludgeon, he is proud to assist one of the greatest Autobot warriors in Cybertronian history.
    Ironhide just hopes he reaches his destination in one piece.

    A repainted ROTF Stratosphere figure. When I first picked this guy up, I thought two things:

    1: Why does he have boat feet?"

    2: "Hey....he looks like Powerglide!"

    I added a face mask with some eposy sculpt and some decals to add to the N.E.S.T. look and there you go. I wonder if he will come winth another figure? Hmmmm......:wink:

    Quite obviously, a bonus Ironhide of some sort, possibly even a modded Minimus Prime, so he can fit in Powerglide.

    TBH, i don't like the Stratosphere mold at all, but i do like the reversed backstory you've given him, being a large plane that does trciks smaller planes would.

    I think this is one of the best paint applications I've seen you do for a custom, and I think that says quite a bit. You really made a lot of solid, creative choices with this custom; I must applaud you, sir! I really think this piece catches you at the apex of your skill, and I think it personifies your work as a whole quite well too. Simply awesome, bud :thumb

    Very cool, E. I can't fault you on the flaws of the mold.
    It's one damn ugly 'bot, but it makes a great Powerglide.

    I actually plan on using the front portion of stratosphere for my own personal poweglide, however I intend to keep him as the A-10, mostly because it's my all-time favorite jet-fighter. Nice paintjob though!

    Great work here, Earl. The mold choice is just spot on for Powerglide, IMO. Painting is great as always. :thumb

    He' not my favorite of the ROTF Jets, either. But I thought he'd make a great Powerglide. I'f only i could figure out a way to mod the feet, huh, Gundam Meister.

    Thanks, bro.

    I don't!!! I want commissions! :lol 

    Thanks. I'm selling decals for him if your interested.

    I loved ol Powerglide, since he was one of the few figs i could afford too own as a kid (can't buy Transformers with Food Staamp :cry ) Thanks, man!

    Thanks. I did spend a lil time with the 2 shades of red, and I'm working on my blending and highlights. So far, so good!

    :lol  MY RIVAL HAS SPOKEN!

    That's gonna look pretty cool. Can't wait to see that.

    Thanks, bro.

    :bowdown:  Coming from the plane-man (Superion RULED!) that means a lot. Thanks.

    This looks amazing X...I actually picked this mold up to do the same thing for the Sector70 Minibot challenge a few months back, but never got around to finishing it.

    I am so happy to see that this actually works, and work extremely well!!! Wonderful job as always on the paint and the head mod makes it perfect!!!

    I was going to include a "minicon" Optimus Prime for the Challenge...going for a role reversal...

    Great work!

    He's so cool, but gawd.... can you imagine carrying a backpack like that your entire life? How many people would you 'take out' just from suddenly turning around?

    This mold really fits Powerglide a lot.

    I wonder why Powerglide's been getting buff lately. Maybe to impress Moonracer or Astoria.

    Nice job!
