    Ok so I'm moving in about 2 weeks and I've not really touched my projects in like a month, except for this guy. I'm not a big fan of all the movie toys but I love this mold. When I first saw it I thought Wheeljack and have been waiting to get him in my area. So here he is about 80% done. I hate white because I don't have an airbrush and it never seems to come out right any other way. I still have custom clear windows that I'm going to paint blue and put on the sides. His front lip keeps falling off so I'm going to have to go a different route on adhesive for it. Also I have to touch up some paint and fix his roof, add some tool to the right arm, etc... So let me know what you think so far. One thing I'm curious about is the head interpretation, I know it's hard to see in the pics but you get a rough Idea.

    What head is that?
    I have issues with flat white too. Can't seem to get it to brush on smooth no matter what I do.

    Seems like a great start! :D

    Whoa, nice! That head is great, it's both movie style and very reminiscent of the G1 style.

    You sir are correct. I don't remember what gundam model it's from. I did mod it to have the side panels. I'll have to add the wings I had completely forgotten about them but looking at it I'm sure I can get some on there.

    I just bought my ROTF Lockdown, and all I could think about was how much he looks like Wheeljack now... Awesome work dude, look forward to seeing it complete.
