    I took the Scout Class 'Dead End' and am turning him into Wheel Jack. The head has a 'Wheel Jack' kind of shape and it is a sporty car, just no rear wing. There is a very tiny front lip though!

    Anyway, as you can see in the stock photo, Dead End transforms and has actual feet. In my pic though, what do you think I should do with his feet because he is 'able' to have more of a G1 look foot when turned around like the foot on the right.

    Any suggestions on a paint scheme for the windows? I'm going to try and keep this one real simple, I even sprayed it this time...

    Thanks! This is what I have so far...

    * I still have a ways to go as far as covering up unwanted spots, fine-edging, and still the color scheme. I can't find a suitable launcher that's the right size and I can't figure out wings at all.

    Hmm, sounds like you need someone with a creative mind to give you some ideas.

    His chest is not the same as Wheeljack's and neither is his windshield so I am still thinking about how I am going to represent Wheeljack with this figure's mold.

    Thanks, I am actually waiting on some paints to come in the mail before I can finish him up. I'll fine tune the edge work and fill in the white more also once I get all my materials!

    I'd suggest modding the head so it wouldn't look so much like a robot bat.

    Other than that, I think you're onto something.

    Maybe adding putty to the face and resculpting so it wouldn't look like a vampire robot, though I'll admit I'm not sure how much clearance you would have with the head fitting into the car mode.

    Thanks MP. I've never sculpted with putty Shelf, but I wish I had some experience with it because I could've molded Wheeljack's facial lines that way. The head is a bit tight, actually the whole figure's tight because of its smaller size. I think if I had enough experience, it could be done though.

    Finished the color scheme and now am just waiting for an autbot symbol. The updated photo is in the very first post on page 1. What do you guys think? Any more suggestions?
