    You can only do this sucker justice, man. So far, the work you've done looks great. I agree, it's a shame that so many parts are crap and need to be rebuilt or "fixed". I really dig the head you're sculpting though--that alone will make this stand out and the mods will only make it better. Looking forward to seeing more of it. Keep up the great work, bro!

    I thought this was the same one I have when you mentioned it last week (that was you, right?)
    I can't even find a picture of the one I have...

    I've had one for years. And if you have been expecting something to the likes of an ABS modelkit (like gundams or jets) that's not the case. It's a resin garage kit. It's supposed to be crap!

    I really like what you are doing, I wish I had the time and go back to upgrade mine.

    yeah, I haven't even attempted to clean mine up yet becasue of this very reason. the only positive thing about it is i paid a fraction of the original price. But still, I had no idea how rough that thing would be. I'm going to be watching this for any pointers for the future, but it sure seems like i'm going to have to rebuild the majority of it. good luck.

    Randy!

    This kit was done by Griffith wasn't it? Done by hand though. I bet he can do a much better one using his computer 3-D modeling skills like his HOS Prime.

    Dude, you need to get Aves Apoxy Sculpt. nothing beats it, except their own product, Fixit Sculpt :lol  (its a lot more expensive than the Apoxy, though)

    its mostly ordered over the internet or phone, so you likely can still get it. aves.com


    I have to say I had no idea you could do this sort of thing, I'd only been exposed to your 2D artwork. you have any old stuff to share?

    Same here, man. I've been a huge fan of your Transformers artwork for quite a while now and it's pretty cool seeing that you also have the bashing skills to back that up. You do great work all around Mr. Ono. This new scratchbuilt Acee is already shaping up to be much better than the kit you were working on. Looking forward to more updates.

    I like your idea, basically your going to sculpt it using the hard clay then you will make a mold and cast a resin replica?

    Sorry to hear that, man. If you're ever looking to shoot it and talk about kitbashing or even 2D art, I'll be glad to help you out. I started as an artist in the 2D field (personal, not professional) and I've since moved into 3D work like this and while I enjoy drawing still, I get more of a sense of satisfaction actually bringing something to life that didn't exist before. Just hang in there bro and know you've got friends around here. Keep up the great work!

    This is sad news for me on the 2-D end of things as you've always been one of my inspirations and favorite illustrators. Still, I can understand the sentiment, and I'm glad you got the help you needed :)  I also started out doing kitbashing because I had done little with 3-D objects, so I can understand where you're coming from, though. I am glad to see you still creating artwork and doing it in the fandom as well. I'm also honored that you're still a Radicon after all of these things :) 

    This Arcee is turning out fantastic! I can't wait to see the final results! :thumb

    Looks nice Makoto! The car mode is awesome. You could possibly be working the best physical representation of G1 Arcee here. :thumb 


    I can't answer for Makoto's Arcee. But for my custom Steeljaw figure, which is the size of Classics Ravage, he's going to cost over $130 to print! And thats through the cheapest print service, in a material that could be suitable for casting with.
