    TFW catch up 5

    I've done two of these. The only difference between the two is that mine lacks the silver paint over silver plastic parts. The other was for a customer. The included robot mode pics are from my version while the vehicle pics are from the customers. Again, they're identical except for the silver overlaying silver plastic which I didn't feel was necessary on mine. I would've posted full robot mode pics of the customers except that I managed to lose them in a data purge at some point.

    Custom pics attached below

    -Tail light sand marking lights painted with a clear blue over silver/silver as needed
    -Added missing silver to vehicle running boards, tool boxes, trim, robot toes, forearms, etc
    -Gold details such as springs, knee and elbow rings and various bits all over
    -Added missing blue panels to the abdomen, shoulders, etc
    -Remedied the missing red panels on inner ankles
    -Various bits black washed for detail
    -Corrected head detail/added missing silver panels and detail
    -Filled in the bottom side of the canisters that sit atop the shoulders with some Lego bits.
    -Sword(s) painted flat black with a silver drybrushing
    -Vehicle's trailer hook up painted flat black
    -and on and on and on..... :) 

    Really, the only thing I didn't do was pin stripe the flames.


    I did manage to dig up a WIP pic from the customers which I'll attach to the next post. At the time I had not finished the red inner ankles, vehicle markings lights and other random final touches.

    WIP pic from the customers build. Missing various details and generally incomplete but this is just to show off the silver finish.

    I apparently missed this until now but the customer took pics after receiving the piece so YAY! I have something for my personal records.
