    Here's my take on these guys, been wanting to do these since before the TF Club released their version. I chose to mash up different versions with the paint scheme, just to make use of some of the detail on this mold. Both started as Generations Wheeljack, with feet/fascia donated from Tracks. I resculpted the WJ heads on both, then prepped for paint.

    I sprayed Runamuck with a custom mixed metallic white, and Runabout with a gloss black base with Black Diamond metallic, all from HoK. Alt modes recieved several coats of Testors Wet Look Lacquer, wet sanded between coats for maximum depth and a mirror finish. Bot mode parts were cleared with Testor's Dullcote, to give them a little contrast.

    Enjoy!

    WANT!!!!

    seriously the match of gloss and satin and flat colors is just plain awesome, and the details on the panel behind the head is the perfect amount of red/orange

    something i feel the exclusives missed the mark on by adding to much color

    the wheeljack head mod is a good choice as well

    now i feel i need to go find 2 wheeljacks and save myself the signup fee

    Thank you everyone! I'll admit, I wasn't expecting this reaction, I didn't think the gloss and flat mix would be well received. I've done it before, but never with this much contrast, thanks again guys. They're up on Ebay now if anyone is interested.
