    This was a commission piece for a friend. I am really proud of how he turned out. When I make one for my collection I will stick with this formula.

    He is made from:
    ROTF Sideswipe
    a set of KO classics seeker wings
    2 GI Joe ROC missile launchers
    Plasticard, apoxysculpt, rare earth magnets, and g1 sticker sheet from reprolabels

    He is painted with a mix of GW, testor, and tamiaya paints. the wings and launchers attach via the magnets and can be placed in robot or vehicle mode.
    Enjoy.

    That's a very cool idea. The only flaw I see with this is that the paint looks thick. It's almost like looking at clay. Other than that The Seeker wings are a very nice touch. Robot mode is a great homage to the original. Overall a very nice job.

    It's alright. Respect to you for painting with white, but i personally disagree with the mold choice. I just can't see Tracks with those arm blades. I think Sidearm Sideswipe would've been better. Another thing, which is just a personal hate of mine, but those stickers are very obvious, they don't seem to mesh too well with the paint work. Maybe that's just me.

    Still, awesome custm, and i like the use of the wings.

    Thanks. :D 

    When you do send me a link. :D 

    Thank you. :D 

    Thank you, but I dont see where you would consider the paint is thick. maybe it is the pics that made it look that way. ummmm.....

    Sure I will send you a PM.

    Thxs bud. I am glad you like it. :D  :D 

    Thxs. :D 

    Thank you but i would like to point out a few things. :) 
    I started on this before the other mold was released. Plus the sidearm sideswipe has red windows. Would not in my opinion worked with the blue body. Also the stickers are meant to be flashy and obvious. ;)  As far as Tracks with arm blades, well each to his own. :D  Beside the guy that he is going to is very happy with it and in the end that is what matters right??

    Glad all in all you like it though. :D 

    Yes I do believe it is a flying car. ;)
